This former railroad bridge is located just south of Ratio, Arkansas, next to Arkansas 44. It will be part of the new Delta Heritage Hiking Trail, a new state park in Arkansas that will run from Phillips County into Desha County. See "Yancopin Bridge" history. All rail has been removed from Snow Lake, Arkansas north in preperation for the trail.
