Spadra Creek Nature Trail

It's not often I am in Clarksville, Arkansas so finding this trail was such a treat!


My job has me in that area every other week for a while, so I went searching for some places to run.



The one on Spadra Creek is just beautiful!


I began at the trail head near the University of the Ozarks campus


right next to this sign.


The main trail is paved and very well lit, but there are lots of little paths going off to the side and down to the water.


Isn't this a curious building?  Does anyone know its history?  I'd love to hear about it if you do!


It's hard to run when you keep stopping to take photographs!  ;-)




How pretty is this path thru the woods?


Dandelion puffs always make me smile!




A charming old iron bridge marks the other end of the trail.


Take a look at the views on either side.


Isn't it lovely?


There are glimpses of the creek throughout the route.




A few streets that have to be crossed to complete the 1.7 miles.


Honestly, that is a negative for me, but traffic stopped quickly and I never felt in danger.


How cute is this bicycle shop?


Spadra Creek Trail is a wonderful place to spend an evening!

Where have you been lately?

  1. This is beautiful! And I hope someone tells you about that interesting stone building... there surely is a story. :) Let's see, where have I been lately? The past week has burst open all the spring leaves on the trees so it seems like everyday my drive home from work is a new path! Seriously, my front yard is a jungle! So, that is where I've been. :)

  2. What beautiful pictures! That looks like a place my family would love to visit... and learn about. I agree that the building looks interesting and it would be nice to find out its history. We are visiting some outlying parks/countryside lately, but no big trips... still, it has been enjoyable. :)

  4. Ha! I bet your "run" took a lot longer with all the stops for pictures, but I am sure glad you took your camera along for the run.

  19. Most modern trail cameras utilise the SD memory card format and have their own built in, limited, storage capacity.
