Looking for a short stroll in Arkansas? Check out the Buckeye National Nature Trail where you can spend some quality relaxation time with your fur-ever friend.
The trail is only .4 miles long, but is perfect for a walk under the canopy of shade trees. Buckeye Trail was specifically constructed for physically disabled persons who are unable to traverse the more traditional landscape of nature trails. It is designed with motorized or unmotorized wheelchair-use in mind and is accommodating for those with limited mobility. Walkers and other assisted devices will have no difficulty negotiating the landscape here.
This pup-friendly trail is the perfect place to take any pup for a walk, but is especially welcoming to service animals. There are many benches strategically placed along its entire length so those on foot can relax and rest among nature. This trail is built for anyone who wants to be among nature and enjoy the fresh air.
Elderly pups and those that might have physical challenges are encouraged to use this trail to get outside and take a short stroll. There are trail-side interpretation signs which point out features in the landscape and topography of the area for a learning experience while walking. For a longer hike, this trail connects to the Mossy Bluff Trail which offers visitors a pup-tastic extended journey!
While here, why not enjoy a picnic lunch with your fur-ever friend? There are handicapped-accessible tables which you and your pup can use to share a meal together out-of-doors. Afterwards, head to the vista points on the trail which offer scenic views of the area and large print guides for the seeing-impaired. Restrooms and drinking fountains are located at the visitor’s center, just off the trailhead.
Buckeye Trail is your place for a short stroll with Fido!
The trail is used by wheelchairs and other mobility-assisted units. Make sure your pup is not startled by these devices, so everyone can enjoy their outing.
