Good rough location map. Good spreadsheet on hikes. 1 for Mo and 1 for AR but I added page numbers to find the hike rather than use his hike numbers. I only checked some AK hikes but the MO hikes are of the same caliber. The hikes are in the north west part of AR in a tight cluster so you can stay at a central location. They range from 1 to 12 miles. Entering the state you can pick up flyers for the more public state park hikes further south. Directions to trailheads are good but sometimes you may have to ask for help. This is a function of location and nothing to do with lack of detail. GPS Coordinates are listed for each place. The hikes appear to be at more remote locations tnen are mentioned in some other MO and AR hiking books. Each hike has a black and white picture of a feature found on the hike.
This is a worthwhile book to have and is in the same style and detail as his other books.

So many trails not mentioned in this book and many trails are out of date in this book. I recently went to pea ridge and took this book with me the only beneficial info was "get a map from the Rangers office" yeah thank goodness because the map in this book was totally out of date and no longer accurate.

This book is the perfect hiking planner partner. Covers all the bases, lets you know up front what to expect, sights you will see along the way. I love this book, it gives you great directions on how to get to these places. Living in AR I can vouch that they are not all marked, some are hidden and you have to know what you are looking for. Lets you know about nearby camping, all you have to do is go online and find out the details, like fees and procedures to reserve if any. Perfect for weekend backpacker/hiker such as me. My dog, this book, and camp equip is all I need.

I used this when hiking in Arkansas last month. Descriptions were accurate. I did manage to not complete a couple hikes, but those were probably operator error.

I love that this one covers both Arkansas and Missouri. I still think there is more you could include, but it's still cool.

I have not had the opportunity to explore most of the hikes described in this book, but based on what I've seen to date the author does a very good job of giving directions and describing the terrain. As a Northwest Arkansas resident, I like the fact that the book covers trails in Arkansas and Missouri, as most books define the scope of the subject matter by state. My only complaints, both minor, are that the 25/25 theme means some good areas are left out, and trail directions are not always as clear as one would like, which is probably more a function of the trail than a fault of the author's. A good supplement to Tim Ernst's guides to hiking trails and nature areas in Arkansas.
