Panels at Devil's Eyebrow Natural Area Complete Trail

Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission - Friday, September 30, 2016

DENA panel staff If cooler temperatures and fall colors turn your thoughts to hiking, the rugged beauty of the trails at Devil’s Eyebrow Natural Area (NA) now have signage and informational panels to make your trip safer and more enjoyable. Recently, staff from the ANHC, along with volunteers from Northwest Arkansas Master Naturalists and staff from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, installed a series of signs and interpretive panels on the 5.9-mile trail.

The completed trail is a strenuous hike through steep Ozark topographycharacterized by streambeds, ridges, and ravines. The signs were funded through a grant from Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.and were designed in conjunction with the Watchable Wildlifeprogram of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) and staff from The Nature Conservancy. Placed at intersections along the route, the signs direct hikers to spectacular views from Trimble Mountain and along the Indian Creek arm of Beaver Lake.

The natural area supports a high diversity of plant and animal species – approximately 550 plant species have been documented there to date. Devil’s Eyebrow NA is incorporated into the Beaver Lake Wildlife Management Area under the management of the AGFC. Details, maps and driving directions can be found on the Natural Area section of our website.
