This rails-to-trails conversion is being developed in phases along the former Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way that stretches from one mile south of Lexa (six miles west of Helena) to Rohwer, and extending via the Mississippi River levee to Arkansas City. The first 14 miles of trail have been completed from Helena junction to Lake View, just across from Old Town Lake. Approximately seven miles of trail are currently under construction from Lakeview to Elaine. 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 trail stretches through a shaded canopy of native hardwoods, alongside agricultural fields, and across streams. Wildlife viewing and birdwatching opportunities abound along the route.

The park visitor center is located on Ark. 49 in Barton. Here you will find trail maps, a gift shop, restrooms, and picnic sites. Bicycles can be rented at the visitor center. Five Class D (no hookups) and Tent Sites are located at this trailhead.
