Cove Creek Natural Area

Cove Creek Natural Area, Faulkner County, located in the Arkansas Valley, contains almost a mile of the course of Cove Creek near its confluence with Cadron Creek. At this point the meandering stream cuts deeply through a ridge of sandstone, creating a spectacular gorge. A small area of creek bottom forest borders the watercourse at the lower end of the tract. An extensive cedar glade covers about 100-acres on the west side of the creek above the bluffs.

Specific types of hunting are allowed on this natural area. For details, see the current Arkansas Game and Fish Hunting Guidebook. Take all necessary safety precautions when visiting this area.
