It has been awhile … I was thinking about doing the hike up Black Fork Mtn (north of Mena, AR). I vaguely recall that there is a “shortcut,“ but I don‘t recall exactly …
My memory tells me that you can park at Rich Mtn store, cross the hwy and train tracks, then hike a short distance parallel to the train tracks … and then head UP the Mtn on a old road bed.
My memory also tells me that I am incredibly good looking and amazingly strong … so … uhhh … Let’s just call it a bit suspect.
Does anyone happen to recall anything about this shortcut? Or maybe I just made it up??
