Slunger Creek Nature Trail

Just a short walk from the park visitor center, this easy loop trail is great for hikers of all levels. Park at the visitor center and walk along the entrance road (Ark. 171) as if heading out of the park [be cautious of cars]. Look on the right for a brown post. Walk down a small hill and start on the trail to your right. Slunger Creek flows alongside most of this concrete, barrier-free trail. Benches on the trail offer a place to relax and enjoy the sounds of the water flowing over rocks in this Ouachita Mountain creek. Many wildflowers bloom in the spring making this area a photographer’s dream.

Trail Visitor Reviews

To ensure you enjoy your state park experience, be aware of the natural world. There are some areas which are potentially hazardous to all visitors. Since it is impractical to post signs at all danger points, use caution when approaching such areas as cliffs, caves, heavily wooded areas, swamps, streams, and lakes. Adults are responsible for children in their care. If unsure about possible hazards, check at the visitor center.
