When I arrived in Heber Springs, Arkansas on April 30, 2020, my landlord told me to walk the trail nearby so I could meet people. It took me a while to figure out how to get to it because he didn’t know. So I walked through the neighbourhood asking anyone outside “How do I get to the Sulphur Creek Trail?”
No one knew because they didn’t walk it.
So I explored until I found the beginning on my end. It was mere blocks from my house. I established the habit of walking the Sulphur Creek trail because I was accustomed to walking the River Trail in Durango, CO and hiking trails like the Colorado Trail (but only to the one-mile marker).
I had missed the changing of seasons to Spring. But this time, in early April, I got to see the beauty of spring on the Sulphur Creek Trail. Here’s what I saw:
I took photos to share with the mayor who asked if I wanted to be on the Trail Council. He said there was another Sulphur Creek Trail and that they would probably be connected by September if they were able to build another bridge over the creek. I’m looking forward to it.
Till next time,
