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.

This was a nice moderate hike. Beautiful scenery with a lot of the sounds of nature. I think the elevation might be a little misleading as there were a lot of hills and I’m pretty sure it was more than advertised, but all-in-all I would do it again. They also have a nice welcome center with facilities and essential items you can buy if you forgot sunscreen, bug spray, water, etc.

Fun little trail. My kids loved the bridges!

We couldn’t find the beginning of the trail (we see it now lol... it’s by the visitor center) but we saw spider creek so we went to that. They had signs for dancing rabbit so we followed. Ended up starting the official trail in the middle of the loop. Went all the way around and even went and checked out the beginning. The app was super helpful for this hike, but the trail is clearly marked/color coded too. Bridges were awesome. Highly recommend this trail!!!

This is a fairly easy trail, but there are times your hear rate will get up. Great work out. We have 2 big dogs so I take 1 the complete trail & come back & get the other one. Be sure and stop & smell the honeysuckle ! It's wonderful!

Super easy hike for the whole family. There are some steep parts for toddlers, past the swinging bridge, but worth the experience.

Beautiful woodland trail through the woodlands. Like other's have said, several bridges, and a great state park geocache. There has been cont storm damage with several trees down you have to hop over and plenty of ticks.

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.
