The variety of Arkansas hiking trails allow visitors to choose from trails that take less than an hour to walk to those requiring all day excursions. Scenic beauty and wildlife abound on all hiking trails. Additional information and advice about Arkansas hiking trails can be obtained from each park.
The Arkansas State Parks offer a wide variety of Arkansas hiking experiences. Devil's Den State Park offers the hike-in campsites on the Butterfield Trail, once the path of the Butterfield Stagecoach Line. For day hikes, the Waterfowl Way Trail at Millwood State Park offers a level path with the possibility of seeing lots of wildlife including beavers at an active beaver lodge and an alligator "hole". For one state park that offers two types of hikes, try Pinnacle Mountain. The East Summit Trail goes up the east side of Pinnacle and is rated strenuous and offers adventurous hikers a wild day! The Kingfisher Trail winds through the floodplain of the Little Maumelle River and is a hard-surfaced, barrier-free trail with unique plants, wildflowers, birds and wildlife.
