Indian Creek Trip Report

Published in Byrd's Adventure Center Blog Written by Zen Boulden

March 22, 2012

Yesterday Lewis Rue and I explored Indian Creek in the Mulberry Valley of Arkansas. From Lewis' cabin near the confluence of Indian Creek and the Big Mulberry (which was running about 10 feet due to heavy rains), we tossed a couple of Dagger Torrent sit-on-tops in the truck and headed up the mountain.

Trains, Planes and Autumn Appeal

Published in Byrd's Adventure Center Blog Written by Zen Boulden

Do you ever marvel at how flying connects things? Altitude brings life to the notion of “six degrees of separation.” From high over the Arkansas hills, for example, a person can see Friley Creek flowing into the Little Mulberry River, which flows into the Big Mulberry, followed by the Arkansas River, the Mississippi, and finally the Gulf—where perhaps Kevin Bacon is vacationing.

Herrod's Creek Trip Report

Published in Byrd's Adventure Center Blog Written by Zen Boulden

May 27, 2011

A couple of days ago Lewis Rue and I paddled Herrod's Creek to the confluence of the Mulberry River at Byrd's Adventure Center in Arkansas. We parked near West Cobb on Hare Mountain and bushwhacked down a steep rivulet into the Herrod's basin with our kayaks. Halfway down we encountered the elusive Mulberry limestone layer from some lost 'ozoic era.

Upcoming Events!

Message From the Staff

green badge-new

Thanks for making Byrd's Adventure Center the leading ATV park in Arkansas and one of the top canoe, kayak, and raft rental services on the wild and scenic Mulberry River. Since 1982, Byrd's Adventure Center has been the original off road and ATV park in Arkansas. In addition to hundreds of miles of ORV and ATV trails in the surrounding Ozark National Forest, Byrd's Adventure Center offers 800-acres of the ultimate trails, mud pits, and obstacles for your ATV, UTV (side by side), motorcycle, and stock or modified 4x4. With concerts beginning in the 1980s, Byrd's was the original music venue in the Mulberry River Valley. In 1995 Byrd's staff obtained the first permit to teach rock climbing in the Ozark National Forest. Byrd's Adventure Center was the first RV Campground and one of the first to offer lodging and cabin rentals along the wild and scenic Mulberry River. Arkansas' first adventure race, the Ozark Challenge, originated at Byrd's in 1998. The first hang gliding aerotow clinic in Arkansas took place at Byrd's in 2004. In 2010 Byrd's Adventure Center was base camp for the first Outward Bound courses in Arkansas.

Thanks to everyone who helped us grow at Byrd's Adventure Center! We look forward to serving you.  –the Byrd's staff
