Warren Hollow Trail at Lake Fort Smith State Park
Warren Hollow Trail is located at Lake Fort Smith State Park in Mountainburg, AR.
It is fairly new trail that is mostly wooded but has some really great views of the lake. At approximately 1 mile round trip and fairly level terrain, I would call this an "easy" trail. Though I completed the trail alone, my 2 and 5 year old sons could have done this trail with me. Their favorite part would have probably been the large wooden trail bridge.

I was surprised to see the the beginnings of Fall foliage on the trail!
I spotted a doe along the way. One thing I love about hiking in the early morning is that your more likely to catch glimpses of forest wildlife.
The trail ends at the basketball courts near some of the cabin rentals.
