About the Book
It was only fitting that a book on our state parks was published. 2023 is the Centennial Anniversay of our parks. (1923-2023).
A lot of the trails are within the state park, while others are in the general area.
I was amazed, while visiting the parks, how much there was to do and how much history was within many of them. You won't be disappointed when you visit.
Danny has been traipsing around the woods of Arkansas for a long time, but not as a hiker. He spent over 35 years as a Professional Land Surveyor, surveying in and around the Russellville, Arkansas area. It was not until he and his wife, Brenda, in 1996, met with their friend, Dr. Robert Chester, on Cave Mountain in Newton County, that they went hiking for the first time. This soon became a passion for Danny and Brenda and after starting a hiking club in 1999, with their friends, Becky and Steve Hern, and after several years of leading hikes, Danny had another passion, to write a "different" kind of hiking book. This book is a results of that passion and included are many of the remote and wild places. At the time of his latest publication, Danny has led over 650 hikes, had over 11950 hikers and hiked over 2870 miles on these hikes. This book contains a small sampling of the great Arkansas Ozarks.
