Meet at 7:00 a.m. at the south end of the commuter parking lot at the I-630/I-430 intersection at Shackleford Road in Little Rock. We should arrive at the trailhead around 8:00 a.m. for those who would like to meet us there. This new trail opened in early April. It is an ADA accessible 1-mile trail, with a level paved surface. It winds through the forested edge of Lower Lake DeGray. The lower lake is much smaller and quieter than the main lake and offers some superb wildlife viewing opportunities. Cerulean Warblers have been documented in the area. Time permitting, we may check the upper lake area trails also.
The trailhead is on Hwy. 390, approximately 2 miles west of Exit 78/Caddo Valley off I-30. The turn onto Hwy. 390 is immediately off I-30. Follow the signs to Lower Lake. At the turn to the boat ramp, continue straight until you reach the trailhead parking lot. The bathrooms are open year-round. GPS coordinates: 34.180313, -93.097702.
