Trail Maintenance Supervisor at Hobbs State Park Requests Volunteer Help
Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area with 12,056 acres of wooded land is the largest of all of the 52 Arkansas State Parks. In the course of a year over 43,000 visitors use the 35 miles of trail that meander throughout the Park. Twenty-four of those miles are multi-use, meaning that you can ride your horse, non-motorized bike, or hike. The remaining miles of trail are for hiking only.
Visitor use and erosion due to weather, relentlessly take their toll on the trails. Al Knox, Trail Maintenance Supervisor at the Park, is a maintenance crew of but one; therefore, the efforts of volunteers are an indispensable means of making sure the Hobbs trails are properly maintained. Typical tasks for volunteers include repair of drainage structures, pruning, vegetation removal, and trail tread maintenance. No prior experience is necessary, and you can learn new skills.
If you like to hike, bike, or ride and enjoy well maintained trails, call Al Knox and become a trail maintenance volunteer at Hobbs State Park.
Please call Al Knox, Trail Maintenance Supervisor at Hobbs State Park, to let him you are coming so he can properly plan activities. 479-530-2458
