Ponca Wilderness Area, Ozark Mountains
Arkansas, United States
It was just a simple day hike… something to stretch the legs. Forrest Wilder was on a road trip back to Alaska, I was kickin’ it in Arkansas.
We found a trail in a guide book that was given to us. But we couldn’t get to the trail head because the road was too much for our transportation. Shoulda brought the truck.
No matter, we found this great hike down to Hemmed-In Falls and had a blast. Check out the video for the details.

You should see the falls freeze into a giant snowcone in the wintertime.
