Located atop the forested hills in northeast Arkansas, Crowley's Ridge State Park occupies the former homestead of Benjamin Crowley, whose family first settled this area. Native log and stone structures, constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, set the mood for this park's rustic warmth. Park facilities include four fully-equipped, modern duplex cabins with kitchens; a group lodging area featuring five bunk cabins, a kitchen/dining hall and bathhouse; 26 campsites--18 Class B and eight Tent sites; picnic areas; snack bar; trails; standard pavilions; baseball field; 31-acre fishing lake (electric motors only); and a 3 1/2-acre swimming lake. Interpretive programs are offered here at the park throughout the year.
Slightly difficult, amazingly beautiful. The trail sustained major damage after an ice storm a few years ago, but it is defiantly my favorite local trail. After the big swinging bridge the trail splits into a loop, to the left is moderate, to the right is difficult, and it does make a HUGE difference. there is another trail that meets up with this one, it can add a little bit of variety to this trail.
This is a beautiful woodland trail along Crowley's Ridge in Eastern Arkansas. There are four bridges including one impressive swinging bridge that spooked my dog. I had to carry her across, but she was great throughout. I have done this trail numerous times and it never fails to provide me a pleasant weekend hike.
