    • Lake Catherine State Park - Falls Branch trail
    Register

    Join your fellow Boomers for a hike along the Falls Branch trail located in Lake Catherine State park at 10:00 AM. Bring a picnic lunch for after the hike!

    The trail begins near the campground and winds through the pine/hardwood forest of the park, crossing Little Canyon Creek several times. It eventually leads to a seasonal scenic waterfall on Falls Creek and works its way back to the trail head.  

     The trail is about 2 miles long and will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours to hike.  This trail is more difficult than our usual hikes.  There are lots of steps up hill and down, and some areas have difficult footing.  The good news is that views make it all worthwhile.

    The park is south and east of Hot Springs, about an hour drive from the village. 

    Instructions to the trail:

    Take HWY 7 south to the Gulpha Gorge road and turn left through the Gorge.  Continue to Bus 70 (E Grand Ave.)  Merge onto E Grand and follow it to Malvern Ave. (Bus 270)

    Turn left on Malvern and follow it to Carpenter Dam Rd.  Turn right (south) and go about 2 miles south to 290.  This road is about 1000 ft past the entrance to Garvan Gardens.

    Turn left (east) on 290 and follow it until it ends at highway 171.  Turn left and follow this east past until you enter the park.  Continue on this road and follow the signs to Camp area C and the Amphitheater.  The trail head is just past the Amphitheater.

    See below for the map of the park.


    All Boomers members are welcome to come along!  We do ask that you register so that we know who is coming and who we should notify if there is a weather delay.  If there is a delay, you will receive an email by 7:30 am.

    This event is exclusive to Boomers Rock members and their guests.

    For more information email kbotkin12@gmail.com or call 346-666-0626.

    COTTONWOOD CANYON MODEL RAILROAD
    By Rick Dorsey

    The COTTONWOOD CANYON railroad is an “HO” scale (1:87) model railroad I started in early 2015. It’s a fictional mountainous railroad somewhere in northwest Arkansas set in the year 1960. Although model railroads are “never finished”, as of April 2022 this one is more or less complete and completely operational. The trains are radio controlled with sound...and some locomotives have over 20 individual sound effects. There are 53 hand thrown switches, mostly lighted building structures, and many of them have interior details. The construction has been a one man operation from start to finish. The layout is L shaped and approximately 34X34 feet with two large peninsulas. It is completely free standing, and there is approximately 120 feet of hand painted Masonite backdrop which I am constantly repainting to blend the background with the foreground. The scenery consists of mountains and valleys made with Styrofoam and a lot of sawdust mixed with Elmer's glue, painted and covered with scenic material. Rocky areas are made from Plaster of-Paris castings. The deciduous trees come from a weed that grows primarily in Scandinavia, sprinkled with colored “flock”. I make the conifer trees with floral wire and hemp, twisted with an aircraft rivet tool and also “flocked” with fine green material. Bushes and brush are made with black upholstery stuffing and furnace filter fibers. I also use real black dirt which I “collected” from the edge of a cornfield in southern Illinois, and a clay colored dirt I could only find on an access road in Arkansas’s Quachita State Park.

    The “Flex-track” comes in 3ft sections which are soldered together and painted with an air brush, mounted on foam roadbed, and completed with gray colored ballast... (a tedious and time consuming job that most modelers hate doing). Most of the locomotives and the rolling stock are “weathered” using both an airbrush and powdered pastel chalks. The buildings are all “kits” some of which have more than 200 parts, and are also weathered. Many of the signs on buildings and billboards around the layout were made on my computer, and the neon lighted billboards and signs are made possible with the latest mini LED and fiber optics.

    The cars and trucks, with a few exceptions, are from the 1940's and 1950's. In real life, by 1960 almost all of the steam engines were history and diesels took over but some still survived as “yard switchers” and many have a second life today, rebuilt and used for tourist “fan trips”.
