Oak Hill Land Trust - Work-day

On Saturday, November 22nd members of the ESOA met and worked on opening up the existing trail to a nearby spring. Work included raking leaves and rocks from the existing old roadbed, pruning along the corridor and removal of some downed trees.
This area is a great resource for the community as the trust has been set-up specifically for hiking trails. We encourage hikers to get out and enjoy the two existing trails: to the Pivot Rock and to the spring. You are asked only to respect the area and remember these trails are for hiking only.
For more information on the trails and how to get there, contact Nick Cross 479-244-5775.

Black Bass Lake - Day-Hike

A group of 14 participants gathered at Black Bass Lake on Sunday, November 16 for an ESOA day-hike. Black Bass Lake which is in the process of being developed into a designated park property has a new system of trails which the group covered in the 1.5-hr hike.
A mindful eye kept a look-out for future ESOA project potential, as the area still has the feel of a work in progress. We are thankful for this new in-town trail resource and are excited about the possibilities that it holds.
