Sulphur Creek Trail Description

The Sulphur Creek Trail offers a pleasant, tree-lined route in the central Arkansas community of Heber Springs, just a few blocks south of Main Street. Although only a half-mile long, the paved trail is the first completed portion of a larger trail network of about nine miles planned for the city.

The trail includes a crossing over Sulphur Creek and about half of the route follows the former Missouri and North Arkansas (M&NA) Railroad right-of-way.

Parking and Trail Access

A trail kiosk and small parking lot are available on the west end of the trail, where it meets South 4th Street (four blocks south of Main Street).

Sulphur Creek Trail Reviews

Good News: Very nice, well maintained trail with lots of greenery, birds, so forth, adequate parking. The trail arcs north off the right of way and over to Walnut.

Bad News: Its too short. Only a half mile one-way.

This trail has major potential. The trail starts off on the old right of way on the Missouri and North Arkansas railroad that folded not long after WWII. The Heber Springs USGS quadrangle shows the right of way. There is very little to show there was once a rail line that ran all the way from Helena to Neosho, Mo. There is still a lot of the old right of way that runs from the current trail that runs south/east and remains undeveloped with houses, etc. You can see some of the old right of way as it parallels the Little Red River for several miles. This could make a really nice lengthy trail.
