Take an Eagle Watch Tour at Hobbs

Witnessing bald eagles soar over Beaver Lake is a pretty badass experience. Hobbs State Park has offered eagle watch tours on Beaver Lake for nine years.  Every cruise is different and you never know what wildlife you will see. According to Chelsea Porter, park interpreter, “We have always been lucky seeing eagles on our tours; some mature, some immature, and we always see other beautiful wildlife as well.  No one will ever be disappointed on our eagle tours.” 

Shoot Your Eye Out at The Daisy Airgun Museum

Tis the season for holiday lights, parades, and 24-hour marathons of A Christmas Story. And in Rogers, that means one thing – a trip to the Daisy Airgun Museum. That’s right, the Red Ryder carbine action two-hundred shot range model air rifle originated right here in The Natural State. While you’re here, you can uncover the history behind the rifle at the museum and even purchase your own authentic Daisy Red Ryder. Just don’t shoot your eye out. 

Slash a Mountain Biking Trail

With a temperate climate and miles of trails popping up every week, this is the perfect getaway for bikers of all skill levels. Check out Lake Atalanta with mountain biking trails that connect to The Railyard Bike Park, complete with natural surface trails and pump tracks. You can also explore Slaughter Pen or Oz Trails for an amazing ride just down the road from Rogers. So load up your bike for your next road trip or find a bike when you get here. You won’t regret a trip to Rogers for your next mountain biking trip – no matter the season.
