The Arkansas Art Trail… where nature inspires art. Breathtaking vistas, mountain views, nationally significant sites, and natural settings are complimented by architectural features and made meaningful by local heritage and cultural sites. This website includes resources to guide you on your actual or virtual journey along the Trail.
Wear comfortable shoes, open your eyes and prepare to be inspired.
Trail Views highlights ten significant sites where nature and art intersect. Exploring the entire Arkansas Art Trail can take three to seven days depending upon how long you choose to linger at each site or how many side trips you take. The Trail has been organized into three day trips for convenience. Side trips have been noted that include additional sites you may find inspiring.
Map & Directions provide the tools you need to visit The Trail Sites. Some of the stops are easy to get to by car, while others can be reached only on foot with hikes that range from an easy walk to a fairly strenuous hike. Get Arkansas Art Trail Map and Directions.
Explore The Arkansas Art Trail by day and plan to Overnight on the Trail. Fine dining, world class spas, elegant historic accommodations, and vibrant nightlife are waiting for you.
A full-color brochure is available at visitor’s centers and in the lobby of the legendary 1886 Crescent Hotel. A downloadable PDF of the brochure will be available soon. Until then, map your journey with Google Maps.
Links to guidebooks and additional trail maps are found throughout the site. These guidebooks may be most helpful in the Buffalo River National Park if purchased in advance of your trip to both inspire and assist you with planning more extensive hikes.
