Travel the Historic Crowley’s Ridge Parkway National Scenic Byway | New

Travelers from all over come to northeast Arkansas to experience the scenic beauty and historical significance of the Crowley’s Ridge Parkway National Scenic Byway, which traverses the rising ridge of the otherwise flat Delta region.

Travel writer for the Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism Kim Williams said Thursday that Crowley’s Ridge was formed over a period of 50 million years when the ancestral rivers of the Mississippi and of Ohio eroded the land on either side and deposits of wind blown soils added height to the remaining ridge.
