Arkansas Mountain #1965


This trail starts one mile up the Silver Creek trail and ends when it joins Carbonate Creek trail. Arkansas Mt. Trail connects 3 trails together. 1.5 miles down you will connect with North Lost Trail, bear right, and shortly after a stream crossing a trail coming from Avalanche Pass joins in. Keeping left you will eventually come to Carbonate Creek. It is a seldom used trail and hard to follow. Respect Private Property! The trail is mostly an open hillside with patches of spruce/fir. There are lots of flowers in the early summer.
