This rails-to-trails conversion in southeast Arkansas is being developed in phases along the 73-mile former Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way that stretches from one mile south of Lexa (six miles west of Helena) to Cypress Bend (five miles northeast of McGehee), one of the former routes of The Delta Eagle.

The first 14 miles of trail have been completed from Helena junction to the Lakeview community and just across from Old Town Lake. Trailheads are located at Helena junction near Barton, Walnut Corner at the U.S. 49 overpass, Lick Creek (Ark. 85 just south of Barton), and in Lakeview.

The paved trail stretches through a shaded canopy of native hardwoods, alongside agricultural fields, and across many streams. Wildlife viewing and birdwatching opportunities abound along the route.
The park visitor center is located on Ark. 49 in Barton. Trail maps are available at this location as are a gift shop, restrooms, and picnic sites. Bicycles can be rented here at the visitor center. Five primitive tent sites are located at this trailhead.
Once completed, the Delta Heritage Trail will also offer sweeping views from bridges that span the Arkansas River and the White River.
