Sinking Stream Trail at Hobbs State Park



Sinking Stream Trail at Hobbs State Park in Rogers, AR


The Sinking Stream Trail is located at Hobbs State Park in Rogers, AR. This trail shares the parking lot of another Hobbs trail- the Historic Van Winkle Trail, which you can see HERE. Like the Van Winkle Trail, Sinking Stream Trail is only 1/2 mile long and is an easy, natural surface trail and mostly kid friendly.
 At one point here is a mildly steeper climb in which  my 5 year old did great. I was backpacking my 2 year old, but had he been walking I just would have held his hand tightly there since there is a bit of a drop off, but it's not a climb he couldn't manage.

It's called Sinking Stream because the upstream portion of the trail sinks under the rocks during dry spells, then re-emerges downstream. 


Basic Info
-DirectionsTake hwy 12 east out of Rogers. The parking lot and trail head is on the right a couple miles after you cross the lake. You'll see Hobb's State Park's large signs along the way which have arrows to point you in the right direction. Keep a lookout for the parking lot area (picture below)
-Trail Difficulty: Easy/Kid Friendly
-Trail Length: 1/2 mile loop
-Open year round
-Picnic area/restrooms

  1. Hey there. Fellow Bella Vistan here. We just (in August 2014) moved back to this area after a 10-year hiatus out of state. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts and being reminded of the number of outdoor destinations. Now that our son is old enough to hike, too (he was only one when we left Arkansas way back), I can't wait to get him out to the best places (we hit Devil's Eyebrow just a couple weeks ago).

    Also, your link on this page to your Van Winkle Trail entry is broken. I figured out to just substitute adventuresintheozarks for exploringoutdoorakansas, and then the link worked.

    Oh, and I think your husband made it much farther than my wife or I would have on the Goat Trail!
