Lake Dunn Trail is a 2.8 mile trail located near Wynne, AR and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
Directions from Forrest City: Go 13 miles north on Arkansas Hwy. 284 to the park.
To get to the trail, you go across a big meadow and into the woods. The beginning of the Lake Dunn trail is beautiful and very easy riding. Smooth path alongside pretty green grass and woods. We went on a spring morning when it was wonderfully cool and dappled light was coming through the forest. After you get to the fork though, the riding definitely becomes harder (depending on which direction you go). We took the uphill section first, then went down a long strip of the South Ridge Trail to meet back up and finish the Dunn. The uphill section and the South Ridge section (H) that we took was difficult! Take plenty of water!
This trail is a nice addition to the trail systems that exist throughout this very scenic state park, but there is nothing spectacular about the trail itself. In fact, it is a stretch to call most of it a hiking trail. However, the breezes from the lake are nice during certain times of the year, and it is relatively peaceful and calm throughout the seasons.
