Along this 1.2-mile graveled path, you will encounter unique geological features and signs of the fascinating history of diamond mining in Arkansas. Paid admission to the diamond search area is required to access this trail. Meet the park interpreter at the Prospector Trailhead, located on the northwest side of the diamond search area. Wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring drinking water and insect repellent. Plan to walk about 1.2 miles over gently-sloping terrain, with periodic stops along the way.
