Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This loop trail curves through thickets and woodlands along a ridge overlooking the Arkansas River. This is a nice, easy-to-follow unpaved trail. Benches placed along the route provide opportunities to relax in the natural surroundings. This is a nice, easy-to-follow unpaved trail. Benches placed along the route provide opportunities to relax in the natural surroundings. The trail curves to the right across a wood-and-stone footbridge, which spans a small ravine.

The path then slopes upward rather steeply.To the left the Arkansas River is visible through the trees, and to the right is what looks like a creekbed but is, in fact, a remnant of the Old Butterfield Stage Line. Cadron was a regular stop on
the Butterfield mail route from Memphis to San Francisco. At 0.1 mile French mulberries, also known as American beauty berries, adorn a small fenced cemetery.The hallowed ground contains the graves of the Stephen Harris family, who owned land in what is now the park from 1867 until 1903."

Very easy trail. Doesn't follow map posted at beginning but is small and easy to navigate. Great views of the Arkansas River.
