Another isolated and beautiful corner of the Ozarks. If you can, plan to stay longer, do more than this great little 6.6-mile loop, which can be used to link with the amazing Ozark Highlands Trail for days of backcountry solitude. Redding is on the Mulberry River, a great little canoe/kayak stream. Hwy 215 is 11 miles of riverside beauty leading to the hamlet of Oark (yes, Oark)where there's great food & homemade pies at the state's oldest operating general store. Hike Spy Rock in the AM, nap at the river after lunch, and scarf blueberry pie for supper... what's wrong with that?
