Description 

The Cedar Creek Bridge is one of eight remaining masonry arch bridges in Arkansas, and is unique as the only one incorporating finished, rather than rusticated, stone. The bridge was constructed as part of a Civilian Conservation Corps project which blazed the trails and erected the structures in Arkansas' first state park.
