Arkansas’ Champion Cypress Tree Is One Of The Oldest Living Things In America

In one of the oldest, untouched parts of Arkansas resides a tree. This particular tree is a towering giant with a history much older than Arkansas’ statehood as well as the entire United States! We’ll need to head deep into the White River National Wildlife Refuge to take the trail to meet this champion tree.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Have you taken the Champion Tree Trail to meet this ancient tree? We’d love to hear about your experience and see your photos in our Facebook group, Arkansas Nature Lovers. You should join for your chance to be featured and to discover why there’s nothing better than Arkansas’ stunning nature.
