Hurricane Creek

A tributary to Big Piney Creek, this stream flows through the Hurricane Creek Wilderness. Its outstanding scenery is characterized by sharp ridges and cliffs, unusual rock formations and clear reflecting pools. The stream is clear, exhibiting interesting ripple-pool patterns, while meandering through richly diverse vegetation with dominant overstory of beech in some reaches. Bristle fern, which is listed as threatened by the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, is located within the river corridor inside Hurricane Creek Wilderness.
