Trail Overview

This loose gravel road ends at the Little River. There is a boat ramp and dispersed camping on the riverside. Not far out of the small town of Fulton, Arkansas, this road provides beautiful views of the river, pasture, and plenty of livestock. This used to be a ferry site for Allen's Ferry. The Red River is a west-to-east stream that flows past Fulton and meets the Little River. This became a shipping point on the Red River. Ferries, one over the Little River and one over Fulton, were chartered. Fulton thrived during this time and could boast of shipping the most tonnage along the Red River. By the turn of the 20th century, Fulton's shipping business changed from steamships to railroad and then to roads. US 67 came through in the early 1920s. On the north side of the gravel road, two headstones are hiding in the weeds behind a barbed wire fence. There is a lot of history here.

Difficulty

You will encounter a loose gravel road with some potholes. It can be muddy in places when wet, very dusty while dry.
