    If I were to add an 11th, it might be either driving Arkansas Scenic Highways 90 and 93 west from Pocahontas–beautiful scenery, especially when the dogwood and redbud bloom in spring. Or maybe to drive or hike the three Arkansas Heritage Trails that start here in Randolph County–The Southwest Trail, the Civil War Trail, and The Trail of Tears (also a part of the National Trails System).
