Exploring Arkansas September 2014

Standup Paddleboarding, Miners Rock Trail, Mountain Man - Old Man River, Blanchard Springs Swimmin' Holes
One of the fastest growing water sports is standing up on a surf board and paddling upright –thus the name—Standup Paddleboarding. We join a group of standup paddleboarders on Beaver Lake near in northwest Arkansas. Miner's Rock Trail along Lake Leatherwood near Eureka Springs is one of the more popular mountain bike trails in the area. Miner's Rock itself is quite the sight ! What do you get when you team up with a river guide who calls himself "Mountain Man?" -- Well, you're in for quite an adventure with "tall tales" and plenty of fish! The Blanchard Springs Recreation Area north of Mountain View offers not one, but two fantastic swimmin' holes along North Sylamore Creek.
