The Delta Heritage Trail is a rail-to-trail conversion that was acquired by Arkansas State Parks in 1993. Fourteen miles near Helena have been completed and are open to hikers and bicyclists looking for an experience in some of the most remote and scenic areas remaining in eastern Arkansas's Mississippi Delta. Call for updated information.

Upon completion, this rails-to-trails conversion will extend from one mile south of Lexa (approximately 7 miles west of West Helena on Hwy. 242) to approximately 7 miles north of McGehee on Hwy. 1. The first four-mile segment stretches from Helena junction to Barton (Lick Creek). Trail heads are located at both Helena junction and Walnut Corner at the U.S. 49 overpass.
