Cossatot River Flyover
This park-natural area stretches for 12 miles along the wild and scenic Cossatot River, Arkansas's premier whitewater experience renowned as the best whitewater float stream in mid-America. Located in southwest Arkansas south of Mena, the Cossatot forms Cossatot Falls, a rugged and rocky canyon that challenges the most experienced canoeists and kayakers with its Class IV and V rapids. When the water is high, the paddlers are here. This National Wild and Scenic River is a watershed basin with flow levels dependent on rainfall. After significant precipitation, the river level rises, allowing experienced paddlers the opportunity to test their skills in challenging Class IV and V whitewater. At the river's Cossatot Falls area, a rocky canyon with distinct ledges, the river drops 33 feet in elevation within 1/3 of a mile. Late winter to early spring is peak whitewater paddling season here. Class III-V whitewater is for experts only. Floatable river levels are usually limited to late-fall, winter and spring.

@davidreidok This flyover was done several years ago (although the river looks the same today). They are expensive so we don't do them often. Plus....what are you, nuts? LOL

The rapids don't look as bad as they sound...But from what I have heard my skill level isn't where it should be if I ever want to kayak this river. Maybe one day :)

That was beautiful...!! But it would've been GREAT to see it with some real water flowing... Thanks for the fly over.
