At the White Oak turn south and follow trail out
to edge of mountain.
After you leave the twin White Oak, you will hike
across an open area with scattered trees.
Access Point "G" 35.52490°, 92.88127°
is south of this area.

Once at the edge of the mountain, head along the
top in a SE direction until you see a faint trail
heading down. I follow this trail all the way to a ravine
and then go to the creek which will be east of Blue Hole.

Some folks head down once they see the rock (pic
to the left) and go straight down to the creek.

Once you get to the Blue Hole there is a large
rock "patio" for you to enjoy your lunch.
