It was marked by a relatively clean looking piece of tape so me thinks someone has been down there recently!

This looks very much like what I call "Indian Creek Trail", and I was very sad to see the AR Fish & Game closure signs. That dept has gotten very active in the area closing off trails that have significant creek crossings. Probably some endangered salamander or something.

Before the closure, I have tracks from various trips that include parts of this trail. One of them comes down from the top (North where I think your photo is) and dead ends--I don't recall why I dead-ended. The other track I have comes up from the South, and I remember it being very remote and rugged with significant creek crossings. I do remember that afternoon--I turned around because it was almost dark and we had to get out of the forest--could not risk the several miles of unknown--we had already come to a couple of dead-ends down there. The Ozark Highlands Trail runs through that valley, too. I was really looking forward to another trip with plans to explore Indian Creek and connect those 2 sections of trail....but then the closure signs. Really sad.
