We had an extra day on our trip up to Indiana for my sisters wedding so we stopped by the Compton Trailhead in Arkansas.
We had a gift certificate for a hotel in Branson, MO that we needed to use so we planned to stay the night there after our hike.
This trail is also called the Hemmed-in Hollow Trail.
Pretty much straight down for over two miles.
In fact my husband hurt his knees the last time we did this hike.
Since he has been doing so much better and has been doing distance running I thought he might enjoy taking it on again.
Thankfully they did not run the whole time or I would have been in trouble.
It is beautiful.
I would say we finally conquered this hike!
Although I would not mind being in a little better shape the next time so I do not feel like I am going to die going back up!
I think the total miles were around 6 since we went to the river also.
I have read that it is over 2000ft elevation change down and then of course back up again.
The boys did amazing on this hike!
They are really starting to push me!
