White Rock Mountain is a beautiful mountain located in northcentral Arkansas toward the western end of the Boston Mountains; it is the highest area for some distance and has really sweeping views particularly to the south and west; Oklahoma is visible on a clear day. It is not really easy to get here; I had to drive 13+ miles on gravel roads to get here although that is part of the fun; and it is really remote; you feel like you are in the wilderness. (I will put directions in a future post) There are several cabins and a lodge dating from the 1930's you can rent; although they are a little funky; all are comfortable. (no central heat or air; just a wood stove and hot running water). The views from the Rim Trail are pretty awesome; some of the best in the state; there are several overlook shelters along this trail to stop and take in the view. Be super careful along parts of this trail; it goes right to the edge of the cliffs in several spots; several people have supposedly died in falls here. Make sure you bring all your supplies with you; it is at least 15 miles over rough roads to the nearest small store. I have another view from the Rim Trail here:
