Adkins / Hailstone Creek, Arkansas, US
Dixon Ridge Rd. to Hwy. 21 bridge (2 miles+11 miles)
||III-V (for normal flows)
Note: The combination of Steep banks and lots of deadfalls tend to clog
the creek with wood from time to time, so keep look out.
Put in: Take Dixon Ridge Rd. west off of Hwy 21 about 1.5 miles north of
Fallsville. This road is the same as the put-in road for the Hailstone run. About 2.5
miles down this road there is a small road turning to the right in the middle of a switchback
which leads to the Dahl Memorial wilderness access. From the turnout at the end, bushwhack
southeast about 1/2 mile to the creek. You're aiming for approximately elevation 1820 feet,
where two tributaries merge.
Take out: Hwy 21 bridge over the Buffalo River at Boxley.
The run on Adkins Creek is about 2 miles, however, you must paddle 11+ miles of the Hailstone run (which will be at flood
when Adkins is runnable) or hike out (which is not a good option).
See the description in the Ozark Whitewater Page.
