Arkansas has been refered to by some backpackers I know as "The Land of Oz". This is in reference to the Ozark Mountains that are in the Northern portion of the state, but it can be applied to much of the natural beauty that one finds in this state. I have often refered to the wilderness experience in the mountains of Arkansas as Magical.

With two National Forrests (the Ozark and Ouachita NFs) and a National Park (Buffalo National River) as well as many state parks, Arkansas offers a wide variety of backpacking options.
