La Petite Roche Historical Walk

La Petite Roche ("the Little Rock") refers to the
rock outcropping on the Arkansas River used as a
navigation point during the early exploration of what
would become the state of Arkansas. Sometimes called
the Point of Rocks, it is the first rock on the Arkansas
River as one ascends from the Mississippi. This is
where the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains first
touch the river, creating a natural plateau above the
flood plain. The rock is sandstone, a sedimentary rock
consisting of compacted particles originally deposited
in a deep marine environment more than 300 million
years ago, and is a part of what geologists call the
Jackfork Formation. The Little Rock is the unique
place where three of the state's natural divisions
adjoin: the Ouachita Mountains, the coastal plain and
the Mississippi alluvial plain or Delta. The junction of
natural divisions here at the rock brings a diversity of
plant and animal life to the area.
