The Pea Ridge National Military Park Foundation is making progress into the past by helping to protect and promote the History of the Battle of Pea Ridge. The Pea Ridge National Military Park Foundation, formed in 1994, is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to help educate the public, provide Park improvements (beyond what the Park’s budget allows), and support the activities of the Pea Ridge National Military Park.

Pea Ridge National Military Park preserves and commemorates the March 1862 Civil War battle that helped Union forces maintain physical and political control of the state of Missouri. Administered by the National Park Service, the 4,300 acre battlefield is located 10 miles north of Rogers, just off of US highway 62.

Pea Ridge National Military Park Trail Master Plan Environmental Assessment

The National Park Service is beginning the process of developing a Trail Master Plan/Environmental Assessment (EA) for Pea Ridge National Military Park. The objectives of the Trail Master Plan/EA are to develop a trail network that enhances the visitor experience, incorporates internal wayfinding, and improves interpretation opportunities while protecting the natural and cultural landscapes. The alternatives identified in the Trail Master Plan/EA will improve connections between trails within the park, accommodate different trail users, and reduce maintenance by using historic roads and minimizing the park’s infrastructure. The project will also determine feasible options for connecting the park with the regional trail network identified in the Northwest Arkansas Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and other proposed trail routes to connect with adjacent communities.
