Byrd Lake Natural Area trail begins at the natural area parking lot. It winds through an upland mixed pine-hardwood forest then gradually drops, looping visitors through a bottomland hardwood forest. A spur off of the loop leads to an overlook of Byrd Lake. The paved trail is ADA accessible.

This is a very nice trail for a quick nature getaway. I went in the late winter which this year was early spring. The trail is paved and ADA accessible. There are a few signs to tell you about the area. I saw a lot of wildlife (tortoise, turtles, ducks, woodpeckers) and heard even more. I went off the trail on the way back to the car for a different view and picked up a tic, but that is not uncommon for Arkansas.

Very short trail and a beautiful area to visit in the fall.
