This All Day Water Trail Through An Arkansas Bayou Is Positively Peaceful

Sometimes you just need to get away from routine 9-5 and reconnect with nature. One perfect place for a peaceful retreat is within the Wattensaw Wildlife Management Area. Located east of Little Rock, this water trail is a calm paddle through the bayou. Let’s spend the day or even longer as we float along the river.
