Shaddox Hollow Nature Trail

Length: 1 1/2 miles
Time: 1-2 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Description: The trailhead parking lot is located off Hwy. 303, approximately one mile from the intersection on the north side of Hwy. 12. The first 1/2 mile of this loop trail follows a ridgeline, providing an easy hike. A scenic vista provides an overlook of Beaver Lake. The trail then descends into Shaddox Hollow. The descent is rather steep in places. The trail winds along the creek through stands of hardwoods and native Ozark vegetation. Some interesting limestone bluffs are found along this section. After progressing up the creek, the trail begins the climb back to the trailhead. This climb can be strenuous in places.
Location: 10 miles east of Rogers on Hwy. 12, which bisects the park property
