Delta Heritage Trail Overview

The Delta Heritage Trail is a rail trail in southeastern Arkansas. The site is a 73 mile track of formerly Union Pacific Railroad which goes from one mile south of Lexa to Cypress Blend. Fourteen miles of trail are currently complete from Helena Junctions to the LakeView Community near Old Town Lake.

The trail surface is compacted crushed rock with some areas paved. The paved trail passes farms and is partially shaded. There are many chances to see wildlife along the trail including bird watching.

There is a park visitor center where bikes can be rented. The trail follows the Mississippi River and Hwy.85. The trail does not have many accommodations along the way so make plans ahead of time for food, water and shelter.
