|My view for most of the hike.|
Lake Ouachita State Park is about an hour and a half drive from Maumelle, most of that on smaller highways. It is just outside Hot Springs Village, and not far from Hot Springs proper. There are camping areas and the lake, but we were there for the Caddo Bend Trail.
The 4-mile trail circles a spit of land that juts out into Lake Ouachita, sometimes close to the lake, and sometimes up higher along the bluff. We were able to go out on the rocky beach a couple of times, to get some good views of the lake, and to let Miikka test the water.
|Still not interested in swimming.|
|A little too rocky for comfortable sunbathing...|
