Delta Heritage Trail State Park
Delta Heritage Trail State Park in southeast Arkansas is being developed under the national "rails to trails" initiative, whereby former railroad lines are converted to pedestrian and bicycle routes. The
trail is being developed in phases along the former Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way that stretches from one mile south of Lexa (six miles west of Helena) to Rohwer, and extending via the Mississippi River levee to Arkansas City. It will total 84.5 miles when finished, making this one of the longest bike and pedestrian trails in the state.
