Route description

Highway 362 near the western terminus

Highway 362 begins at Highway 49 in eastern Monroe County within the Arkansas Delta south of Blackton. The highway runs due east as a section line road toward Louisiana Purchase State Park. After the last driveway, a gate operated by the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism will close when the park is closed. The roadway enters a headwater swamp, with large water tupelo and bald cypress trees forming an allée before terminating at a small parking lot for the park.[3] Park visitors continue on an elevated foot bridge over the swamp to the Louisiana Purchase monument.


Highway 362 was created by the Arkansas State Highway Commission on November 26, 1969 by adding a county road to the state highway system to provide access to the Louisiana Purchase marker.[1]
