The next social activity is Sunday, October 26, 1:00 pm at Hart's: A Fall hike to Hawksbill Crag.

Hawksbill Crag is definitely one of the most recognizable sites in Arkansas and fall is a great time to visit--I expect the leaf color will be fantastic. Hawksbill Crag is located in the Upper Buffalo Wilderness Area, overlooking Whitaker Creek. The hike to the crag is short, only1.5 miles, with a couple of small to moderate climbs. Children should be watched with caution, as there are a few spots on the trail that follow right along the rim of the bluff. The drive will last about 1 - 1.5 hours, with about 6 miles of uphill dirt road. Parking at the trail head is very, very limited. Carpooling is necessary. We will leave the Hart's parking lot at 1:00 pm; please try to arrive a bit early so we can organize as few cars as possible.

Our service project is planned for Nov 8, at the Ozark Land Trust property we explored last spring. Details will be posted soon!
