Take One Of The Longest Paved Trails In Arkansas For An Adventure Everyone Can Enjoy
You don’t have to be the next Bear Grylls to enjoy the splendors of the Natural State. Adventures for the skilled outdoor adventurer certainly do exist, after all we have covered some beautiful bushwhacks and worth-the-effort trails. However, plenty of family friendly trails for the more casual hiker can easily be found in the state as well. Today’s trail is a bit short from being the state’s longest paved trail (which is the 88-mile River Trail around Little Rock) but it is perfect for a day of enjoying nature in an accessible setting. Let’s pack up the family and stroll around the gorgeous Lake Atalanta.
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: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
