Handicap accessible sights to see in Arkansas!๐Ÿค˜โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿค˜

๐Ÿ“Cedar Falls Overlook at Petit Jean State Park.

-This is a short .3 mile boardwalk to an observation deck overlooking Cedar Falls.

๐Ÿ“ Stouts Point at Petit Jean State Park.

- A fantastic historical landmark, and overlook of the Arkansas River. There's also a grave site with some of the most interesting history behind it, that tells you how Petit Jean got its name.

๐Ÿ“ Louisiana Purchase Landmark.

- Enjoy the short stroll through the swampy wetlands in Eastern Arkansas to the very sight used to survey the land acquired through the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.

๐Ÿ“ Brushy Creek Recreational Area.

- This area features a short concrete path to the big ole metal bridge that spans the entire length of the Cossatot River. One of my favorite places from my childhood.

๐Ÿ“ Arkansas Arboretum Trail

- This .7 mile loop trail is located near Pinnacle Mountain in Little Rock. This trail is just a quiet little saunter in nature. Perfect for an educational roll in the woods with all their interpretive signs and wildlife watchin'.

๐Ÿ“ Crystal Bridges Museum.

- This is a FREEEE 120 acre art museum in Northern west Arkansas that is perfect for an all day concrete labyrinth of unqiue sculptures, artwork and awe inspiring creations. I visited here when I tore my rotator cuff and couldn't do much else. 0 regrets. We spent all day there and still didn't see the whole thing.

๐Ÿ“ Garvan Woodland Gardens.

- Now this... This is an incredible place in Hot Springs Arkansas. 210 acres of botanical gardens, waterfalls, huge art sculptures, whimsical little ponds and seating areas for bird watchin and tree huggin. Also spent the whole day there and didn't see the whole thing.

๐Ÿ“ Horse Thief Springs on the Talimena National Scenic Byway

- Although this sight to see is over the Oklahoma line going west on the Talimena Scenic Byway, it's still apart of the experience when you start the drive from Mena Arkansas. This historic sight is the old spring house that provided water to the traveling Choctaw Indians and white settlers. The Civilian Conservation Corp used native rocks and built the stone structure around the spring in the 1930s.

๐Ÿ“ Orchard Trail on Rich Mountain at the Visitor Center.

- This is a .5 mile paved loop features old rock structures of times long gone. There is an old well sight and across from that is what's left of an old cellar. If you peer out into the woods, off the trail, you'll likely see fruit baring trees still standing and remnants of old homesteads.

๐Ÿ“ Camden Trace Trail

- This is a 2.1 mile completely paved trail that follows along the old railroad with lots of quiant little bridges and clear creeks to lay them eyeballs on.

There's many other handicap accessible sights to see in Arkansas that aren't listed here so just message me if you have any questions about a specific area. I didn't include photos from all the places listed so give em a Goog if you're curious.
