This complex is amazing!! The easy walking path is right along side the moderate hiking/bike trail.. there are creeks running through and small ponds scattered throughout. I’ve been there hundreds of times and maybe once did not see deer. (Usually always in morning) My wife and I hike the moderate trails and or easy path 3 times a week. It’s a great change of pace between the two different paths and it’s a great place to get in some exercise with great scenery .. you’ll love it

The city has the yellow trail at 4.4 miles, my gps/phone showed 4.19 miles after i finished. Great trail a little muddy.

Nice quiet hike on a winter Monday. good for dogs, largely a very easy hike. it was a bit slippery (from mud) in some places from the recent rain. Recommend sturdy shoes that can get muddy.

Great little trail. was a little muddy and one of the middle boards on one of the bridges midway was broken, giving both me and my dog a small coronary; however, very pleasant overall. nice variety of floors and fauna, good shade. moderate night br stretching it a bit. Pretty easy trail but recommend sturdy shoes that you are ok getting muddy.

Great trail with some very nice views

Very wooded with multiple trails to traverse. Beautiful brooks and lakes/ponds, including the famous Pepsi Cola pond. Always love coming here year round

Short and interesting!

This was a great afternoon trail for the family and I. The only complaint is there were certain parts of the trail that were not well marked, specifically when you would cross roads. We had to search for the entrance on the opposite side, therefore we did some extra walking around but saw some beautiful scenery and wildlife.

Trail is very well identified and marked. Did the route with an 8 year old and 3 year old with no issues. Scenery is ok but power lines and cell towers ruin the look.

lovely easy trail following the lake.

Great Trail. They are working on creating a new trail so my recording path is off of what the map shows in some areas. Follow the orange tape on the trees where possible. The old trail is blocked off in areas with piled up branches and logs.

First, I can't believe I've grown up/lived here for so long and have never hiked this trail. Today, I hiked south-to-north, starting at the Deep Ford Campground on the footbridge crossing Fourche Maline Creek. The first ten minutes was challenging, as from this end it's steadily uphill over a trail of jagged sandstone, but from there the trail was much easier on the feet even if it was straight uphill (which it was in a few places). Mountain Trail is listed as a 7-mile out-and-back trail, but in reality it's more like 4.5 miles one way(I took a mile's worth of detours to climb waterfalls), which would make it 9 miles out-and-back. Instead of going back the way I came, I followed Ash Creek Road at the end of the trail back to the park road and then back through the main area of the park back to Deep Ford. All told it was a 8.5 mile hike. There are places on the trail that are entirely worth the hike. First, from the south end it wasn't far until I came across a small creek that empties into Carlton Lake, but not before it tumbled over a 75-foot waterfall that was flowing decently thanks to the recent rains. At the top of the waterfall, the creek disappears underground and then disappears/reappears another three or four times before it finally meanders into the lake. From there the trail ascends to the bluffs overlooking the lake (the ones you can see across the lake from the mini golf area, pool, and nature center). After hiking up the incline to reach the top of the bluffs, it's a fairly level climb from here aside from the walk up the ridge on the south side of Lake Wayne Wallace. Along the way the trail crosses the Outdoor Classroom Trail, and a person who didn't want to continue on to the end of the MT (and the ensuing 3-mile walk back to Deep Ford) could just pick up the OCT here as it runs parallel to Fourche Maline, then walk through the park and then one mile back to the trailhead where you started. The end is a bit of a let-down; it just dead-ends on Ash Creek Road, although you can cross the road and pick up Cattail Pond Trail and Rough Canyon Trail that take you further north toward the caves. If you follow those, you could end up in the cave parking lot and/or on the rec field of Group Camp #2 (the old Boy Scout camp). I didn't think I had enough daylight left to get to the caves and either walk back to the park interior or even hitch a ride, so I didn't cross the road; I headed southeast on Ash Creek Road and eventually ended up back where I started. Along that walk--which I discovered why hikers prefer the soft, padded feel of a hiking trail to the asphalt of a paved road--I passed the horse stables, equestrian camp, artesian well, and a Fourche Maline that couldn't make up its mind. It was either roaring over boulders or almost completely still. Along the trail I only passed three other groups of hikers: an older couple (who actually passed me), a family with boys that refused to stay on the trail and insisted on getting precariously close to the bluff edges, and a group of women with their dog (who I actually encountered twice, once on the back side of Lake Wayne Wallace then again on the road back to Deep Ford). Because of the recent rain, I couldn't walk far without being within earshot of running creeks or gentle waterfalls. This is honestly the biggest reason I enjoy hiking. I'm a sucker for creeks and waterfalls and the sounds they make. On this trail, though, I can imagine that many if not all of these crossings would have been impassable just a few days ago due to being rain-swollen. I averaged 2.5 miles an hour and I walked SLOW, especially on the parts that were uphill or along the ridge.

Beautiful with many trails to choose from. Useful all year long

Beautiful trail all year round. Views of the Arkansas River and of the city but still being secluded in the trees. Large cliffs and boulders. Incline is variable. I love this trail and have enjoyed it for years!!

We hiked from the information lodge to Inspiration Point. It was lovely. In spite of the rains this week, the trail had very few muddy places, and the views were great from the top. Info lodge restrooms were very clean!
