The air is getting a bit crisper, the nights are getting a little longer, which can only mean one thing: the Ozarks are about to be set ablaze with the burnt oranges, deep reds, and vibrant yellows of Autumn! With countless trails begging to be explored, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite fall hikes.
Below, you will find ten hiking adventures with some of the best leaf peeping angles in the region. We picked dog-friendly locations with easy to moderate difficulty so that everyone and their furry friends can get out and enjoy this quintessential Northwest Arkansas activity.
If you are bringing your dog, don’t forget to bring something to pick up after them! Let’s help keep #NWArk beautiful.
