A gorgeous blue gem is located ten miles west of Eureka Springs, Arkansas on Highway 62. Blue Spring is a quiet getaway into the natural world. There is over a mile of trails winding through the 33 acres of the Blue Spring Heritage Center.
The gardens range from an indigenous woodland garden to a healing Medicine Wheel.
Historical Blue Spring is a natural wonder that pumps 38,000,000 gallons of water each day. 38 million? Yup. There are 38 million gallons of some of the purest and coldest water in the region flowing from this spring into the stocked trout lagoon and then into White River.
This area has an incredibly rich history. I recommend beginning your tour with the historic film and museum. An archaeological dig of the small bluff shelter confirmed American Indian artifacts dating back to 1700A.D. In fact, the bluff shelter is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Blue Spring Heritage Center is open from 9 am - 6 pm every day from March 15 through Thanksgiving.
Autumn is perfect for hiking and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! Visit Blue Spring today!
Happy hiking! ;-) -Marci
