Kingfisher Trail

This hard-surfaced loop trail winds through the floodplain of the Little Maumelle River. Unique plants, wildflowers, animals and birds can be seen here.

This gentle 1/2 mile, 30-minute loop is paved and is excellent for baby strollers, the physically limited and for exercise walking. Follow the sidewalk from the picnic area rest rooms to reach the trail sign. This walk is highlighted by huge, 500-600 year old bald cypress trees along the banks of the Little Maumelle River. This trail is a favorite for many school groups. Insect repellent may be needed during the late spring and summer months. For bird watchers the Kingfisher offers many species during the spring migration.
