Exploring Arkansas August 2010
Thunder Canyon Falls, Felsenthal National Wildlife Reserve, Delta Heritage Trail, Goose Pond Natural Area
As part of the Buffalo National River Region, "Thunder Canyon" Falls is one of the more lesser known waterfalls in the area and requires a bit of a hike to get to it-but well worth it. Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge near Crossett is home to the endangered red cockaded woodpecker Delta Heritage Trail State Park near West Helena is a rails to trails conversion, offering a unique look at the Delta. At Goose Pond Natural Area near Atkins, one can kayak through an enchanting cypress tupelo swamp environment.
