Clinton, Arkansas is a delightful town. It may be small, but it has a ton of history packed into the area. The town's official website is full of fun facts about Clinton. For instance, during the Civil War, the courthouse was burned down, and a nearby church was used as the courthouse for four years after that. Another fun fact is that, until 1970, there were less than 1,000 people living in the town. The high school football team is the Yellow Jackets, and the first governor, whose name the city took, was Dewitt Clinton. Now that you know a little something about the area, let's explore!
Your first stop is Main Street. You and your dog will love the 1.2-mile trail located at Clinton City Park. While you're here, you can see the Three Rivers Trailhead water sculpture. There are learning kiosks set up so you can learn about the history of the area. Just keep your pup on a leash, and be prepared for a crowd when you stop by.
Archery Fort Park is a more family-friendly park than the trailhead. It has lots of trees, a playground, and picnic areas. The short trail is less than a mile long, but is perfect if you want to stretch your legs.
Happy hounds (and humans) abound in Clinton!
