FAMN - Bluffton Trail Work and Native Plot Survey

Meet at Double-Drop Falls Trailhead at Bluffton Nature Preserve.

35.653493,-92.525579 (cut and paste coordinates into search box in Google Earth)

About 6.0 miles north of the Hwy 65/09 intersection in Clinton on Hwy 65, take County Road 79/Watergate Road (600 feet north and across from Botkinburg Foursquare Church – Correctly located on Google). Continue for 3.8 miles (keep right at both intersections) until it ends. You’ll see a sign for Double Drop Falls, the first place to access the trail system inside Bluffton Preserve.

If interested, see Carpooling/Caravanning Notes Below.
----------
Removal of debris from recent ice-storms (mostly cutting and removing deadfall that has crossed the trail); the western leg of the Bluffline Trail (mostly on the edge of the bluff) will be our focus trail.

Carpooling:

If you would like to carpool/caravan, meet at Robert’s house 29 Ridgeview Drive, Conway (correctly located on Google Earth) between 1200 and 1215.

Please be on time; notify me (Robert Fuhler 501.733.4019) if you want to carpool the night before the function; the departure time of 1215 is concrete as we will be on a schedule.

If you are in the Clinton area, I anticipate being in Clinton at the south parking area adjacent to the Garden Center at Walmart (35.565993,-92.454202) between 1250 and 1310; look for a Dark Gray 4Runner.
