This rails-to-trails conversion in southeast Arkansas is being developed in phases along the 73-mile former Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way that stretches from one mile south of Lexa (six miles west of Helena) to Cypress Bend (five miles northeast of McGehee), the former route of The Delta Eagle.

The first 14 miles of trail have been completed from Helena junction to the Lakeview community and just across from Old Town Lake. Trailheads are located at Helena junction near Barton, Walnut Corner at the U.S. 49 overpass, Lick Creek (Ark. 85 just south of Barton), and in Lakeview.

The paved trail stretches through a shaded canopy of native hardwoods, alongside agricultural fields, and across many streams. Wildlife viewing and birding opportunities abound along the route.

The park visitor center is located on Ark. 49 in Barton. Trail maps are available at this location as are picnic sites and restrooms. Five primitive tent sites will be constructed at this trailhead in 2008. Contact the park office for the anticipated opening dates of these new tent sites.

Once completed, the Delta Heritage Trail will also offer sweeping views from bridges that span the Arkansas River and the White River
