Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel - 479-855-6598
The Church is Adorable. The trail is short, paved, and well maintained. You can take your dogs but are expected to clean up their poo. They have little poop bags attached to each bench. It was cool to see once but not really a place to hike if that's what you are in to.
Nice, short and well-maintained walk. A few segments have a moderate incline so those with wheels take care. The chapel is amazing and well worth the visit!
Go for the church, not for the hike. The hike is a paved loop around the church with some steep inclines, so it might not be fully handicap accessible. The church, on the other hand, it's what this place is ALL about.
Chapel was a very impressive sight! The trail is easy, short, and completely paved.
I always walk this enjoyable paved trail every time I visit the Mildred B. Cooper Chapel in Bella Vista. This Chapel is absolutely beautiful and is a favorite place of mine to escape to and spend time alone with God. They play such peaceful music inside the Chapel, and sitting on a pew inside, you can see outside this mostly glass Chapel (I can't help but notice beautiful Cardinals I have seen in the tree branches). The walking trail is a short loop, around the Chapel, and is a nature walk with a nice view of Lake Norwood. There is a bench to stop and rest awhile and It is said that there is also a geocache to be found on this trail.
