Arkansas State Parks are ready for the autumn-lover visitors. There are so many natural areas and state parks that you can choose from. There are also lots of activities to do with your family and friends.

Hiking is one of the most popular activities and the first-rate natural areas at Baker Prairie Natural Area, Cossatot River State Park-Natural Area, Devil’s Eyebrow Natural Area, Devil’s Knob-Devil’s Backbone Natural Area, Rattlesnake Ridge Natural Area, and Lorance Creek Natural Area are something to look forward to every autumn.

Lorance Creek has a paved trail and boardwalk that is ADA accessible and Rattlesnake Ridge is our only site with a mountain bike trail and offers several levels of difficulty for riders.

For those who want an aquatic experience, the Bayou DeView Water Trail starts at the Benson Creek Natural Area and goes through the Dagmar Wildlife Management Area and Cache River National Wildlife Refuge. You can explore by canoe or kayak.

Nature & wildlife lovers can explore larger natural areas with a mix of grassland and woodland habitats, such as Terre Noire Natural Area and Warren Prairie Natural Area.
