Bona Dea Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This mostly hard-surfaced trail system, which passes through the Prairie Creek floodplain, was designed as a jogging and fitness trail set amidst a wildlife sanctuary. Lake Dardanelle provides some of the best recreational opportunities in Arkansas, from fishing and boating to picnicking and camping. The 34,000-acre man-made lake mirrors the twin cities of Russellville and Dardanelle about 85 miles northwest of Little Rock. It is 2 miles wide in places and has 315 miles of shoreline. With the Arkansas River Valley being one of the American bald eagle’s favorite wintering places, it is no surprise that the Lake Dardanelle area has a hiking trail that is also a sanctuary. Bona Dea Trails and Sanctuary, managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, comprises 186 acres of wetlands and woodlands that provide haven for a variety of wildlife."
