Getting There

From Hwy 167 south of Batesville take Hwy 230 (Camp Tahkoda Road) west for about 3-4 miles and turn right at the Little Red Store. Hwy 230 becomes Locust Grove Road at this point. Drive for 3-5 miles and turn left onto Jamestown Loop. (You'll know you're there because there are a few road signs for Jamestown.) This road will start uphill after a short distance. Once you reach the top of the hill, pass the radio tower on your right then a water tower on your left. Continue on this road about a quarter of a mile until you pass the Wildlife Management Sign on the right handed side as the road starts to go slightly down hill and turns to gravel.

At this point there is a gravel turnout on your right. The gravel turnout is 0.7 miles from the water tower. Turn in here and follow the trail on the right. The trail is about 2 miles long. The "road" is washed out and very rough, but a car can handle it. If it has rained recently, expect lots of mud. You'll come upon an orange gate. If the gate is closed call Kyle at 870-613-4662 for access. If the gate is open continue in. There will be two logging roads leading to the right DON'T drive down those. The road will come to a Y shortly after, veer right and continue to the parking area. Your vehicle stays here.

3 ways to get down the bluffs:

1. Dog Walk/Walk Down : Puts you near the Game Wall. Easiest way to get down. Come down the hill till you hit the bluffs. . Follow this trail for a ways, 100 yds maybe, till you see a cairn stacked to the left of the trail and the brown official looking hiking sign. Both are easy to miss. Turn towards the bluff and you should see a relatively easy way to get down. This can be pretty slippery when wet.

2. Climb Down : Puts you at the end of the Disaster Wall. When you first hit the bluffs, turn left and follow the trail through a few puddles. The trail will at one point cross a large, flat, short rock. This is your cue to start looking to your right for a cairn and a small trail towards the bluff. You'll find RED rebar steps recently installed to make getting up and down a breeze. After climbing down, continue back along the bluff line to see the end of the Disaster Wall.

3. Goat Trail: Just past the Climb Down access point you'll find a trail that meanders down the bluff line in a much easier descent than the previous two. You'll end up at the bottom of the bluff line below the Disaster Wall-
