This trail is paved and shady with interesting signs depicting different trees. At one point there is a nice area at the river to sit and enjoy the different birds calling out.

This is a great little trail that is often overlooked by park visitors. The main loop trail is paved and wheelchair friendly and takes the visitor through the different types of trees and shrubs from the different regions of Arkansas. There are also several short (0.2-mile) natural surface trails for the slightly more adventurous. Although this trail isn't as exciting as climbing to the top of Pinnacle Mountain, I think it is a great little walk in the woods.

The park offers many different programs and special events on the Arboretum Trail. I attended what the park called the "Owl Prowl" on this trail and loved it. The park ranger has recordings of owl calls and plays them over a speaker at/after dark. I couldn't believe how many owls we saw and how quiet the owls are in flight. I highly recommend that you check into the park's program - they are usually very good.
