3 p.m. - 5 p.m., WILD WOMEN WEDNESDAY, Join Park Interpreter Maryanne (maryanne.stansbury@arkansas.gov) for a 3.5-mile hike on the Ouachita Trail (OT). The hike begins at the Ouachita trailhead by the visitor center, heads towards the East Summit trailhead and continues on the East Summit trail stopping at marker #6. The group then doubles back to the starting OT trailhead. The degree is moderate to very strenuous due to uneven terrain and steep incline. Wear appropriate shoes and bring water. Ladies’ hikes are offered every Wednesday through March 26, 2014 at 3 p.m. sharp at Pinnacle Mountain State Park. Starting location in the park varies week to week. Contact the park for further information. Meeting place: Visitor Center. Admission: Free
