Cane Creek State Park - Day Hike Trails

Cane Creek Lake Trail (G-6)

Park/Rec Area: Cane Creek State Park
Region: Delta
Length: 15.5 miles
Time: 3 - 4 hours by mountain bike or 8 - 10 hours of brisk hiking
Difficulty: Moderate

Location: From Pine Bluff go south on Hwy. 425 to Star City. At Star City go east on Hwy. 293 for 5 miles to the park entrance.

Description: Exploring Cane Creek Lake Trail by foot or mountain bike, you will traverse a maze of small creeks that etch their way along deep draws between the steeply sloping ridges of a thick forest interspersed with dogwoods. Then, as you begin to revise your preconceived picture of southeast Arkansas, the trail bends around to open views of a lake filled with tall snags, water lilies, lotus blossoms and, bald cypress brakes.

Camping is allowed only at the Cane Creek Lake Trail Camping Shelters (after mile 6, then east .5 miles). A required camping permit is available at the state park visitor center. Watch for the three unique suspension bridges along the trail. Mountain bikers will really enjoy the quick rolling hills and beautiful scenery. Please remember to always wear a helmet while riding in the park or on the trail.

Be sure to check at the park visitor center for current trail conditions and trail regulations.

Description: Cane Creek State Park uniquely sits on the border of two natural divisions of Arkansas. These divisions are the Gulf Coastal Plains and the Mississippi Alluvial Plain, also known as "The Delta." The Delta View Trail is located within the "Coastal Plains" and is characterized by gently sloping hills. The bench at the one mile mark will give a hiker a fantastic view of Cane Creek Lake, which lies within "The Delta." This trail provides an excellent opportunity for interpretive programs, exercise and wildlife viewing.
