Is the trail open all year?

Yes, the trail is open all year. However, some short sections of the trail may be closed for short periods of time due to a controlled burn in the area, or for regeneration work being done to control red oak borer which has killed many tree

The trail is not maintained from late spring until early fall, so summer hikers can expect to encounter heat, humidity, dense vegetation, wildlife including poisonous snakes and insects.  Maintenance begins in mid September, continues into late fall,  and responds to storm damage into late spring.  Most hikers opt for leaf-off  for hiking in Arkansas.
