A forest long protected from human disturbance, Striplin Woods Natural Area displays considerable diversity from an elevated river terrace down to the margin of the White River. Located in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain of eastern Arkansas, Striplin Woods represents a small portion of the once extensive hardwood forests that occurred across this part of the state.
Visitors will walk through exemplary bottomland hardwood forests full of old-growth trees. Striplin Woods is a part of the White River National Wildlife Refuge and is co-managed with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).
