Saline River Water Trail

Saline River Water Trail

The Saline River flows over 200 miles southeast from Benton before joining the Ouachita River at Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge near the Louisiana border. It is the last major stream in the Ouachita Mountains that has not been dammed.

The Saline River’s forks are among the state’s healthiest streams. The South, Middle, Alum and North forks flow mostly through forests before joining together just south of Benton.
