Hobbs State Park Recreation area is 12,056 acres, it is the largest land-holding state park in Arkansas with long ridges, steep hollows, wild life and wildflowers, unique geology and unique history. This trail is family friendly, allows dogs in leashes and the weather is very pleasant in Fall and Spring.  Be sure to check the web site for closures due to hunting dates or other unexpected events.  If you have children or feel like a big kid, visit the Hobbs Visitor Center, it is about ½ mile east of Hwy 303 on Hwy 12. This loop trail offers several distance options, and total mileage is about 24 miles if you run all loops combined.  This trail is easy to navigate and is well marked.  The terrain offers steep hills, rolling hills and stretches that allow you to cruise effortlessly.  Trailhead parking on Townsends Ridge Road or Piney Road.  Both are accessed from Hwy 12. Maps of the area can be found at this link: http://friendsofhobbs.busterneece.com/sites/default/files/Hidden%20Diversity%20Multi-use%20Trail%202010_1.pdf Plan to carry water with you, there are no water spigots except for the TH at Townsends Ridge Road. This area is remote and cell phone service may be spotty or non-existent.  Trailheads do have pit toilets and good parking.  In warmer months watch for snakes and poison ivy.
