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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

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.
