TOLTEC MOUNDS ARCHEOLOGICAL HIKE
A walk through prehistory at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park.
Take a walk through prehistory at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park. You will learn how a 3/4 mile ADA-accessible trail with shelters to protect visitors from the sun has opened experiences to a broader range of people.
This unique mound complex was the cultural center of the Plum Bayou people from 650 to 1050 A.D. Much is not known about the Plum Bayou people because they had no written language. It is unknown where they came from or where they went. Not all of the mounds were used at once and only one mound is known to be a burial place. Some mounds have unique alignments with the sun on solstices and equinoxes. Fifteen of the eighteen mounds built as a religious and ceremonial center have been destroyed by agricultural activity that started in the 1850s.
The workshop will include an orientation DVD and a tour of the State Park’s museum. Artifacts and exhibits on display tell the story of a people who lived in Arkansas long before Europeans arrived. A guided walking tour of the site will allow you to see the tallest mound in the state of Arkansas from only a few feet away. The gift shop offers items such as pine needle baskets, reproduction pottery, a wide selection of books, and much more!
