Backpacking the Butterfield Loop near Devil’s Den State Park in Arkansas
A 15 mile trail that begins in the State Park, but spends most of its mileage in National Forest. With tons of springs, creeks, bluffs, and old homesteads, this is a fantastic way to get a feel for the Ozarks in a short two day trip.
