Definitely almost 10 miles. I enjoyed the trail. However the rocks were very hard on the feet after a while and I have good hiking shoes Saw a nice view of the lake as well as many other interesting beauties of nature. Was definitely peaceful.

Going in as one of my favorites! The cliff rocks. The foliage. The lizards. The cave! The lake! It is definitely a moderate hike. Steep in places. Close to the edge in others. Loose rock, so good shoes needed. It is very worth the time tho.

I loved this trail! The trees, the hike, the lake. Very peaceful. My dog loved it as well.

Fun and quick

Beautiful trail!

Good trail for mountain biking for a beginner. The trail is well-marked. Nice view of Beaver Lake with nice benches to sit.

Great trail — good marking and beautiful views. Be sure to wear a shoe with a good rock plate as the surface is made up of many 1/2 to 1 inch rocks.

I only saw bikers but clear evidence of horse usage.

Oh, and you can make this longer — I added on a little extra leg to get to 10.5 miles — but I don’t see how you can make this a 7.5 mile trail. 8-9 as a default.

Great little, short trail. It's a nice trail for a quick walk and fairly easy for older and younger hikers.

Did this trail in July of 2017. Loved it!!! Bring snacks, extra water and watch for rattlesnakes in the rocky area.

Great trail!! A bit interesting for a 4,5,7 yr olds, but they still had a good time.

Beautiful trail and our dogs were worn out afterwards.

Time just flew by hiking this trail. Love seeing the water nearly every step of the way. The damn is great and this is a must see trail in ES.

My family enjoyed this hike. Water views throughout. Well maintained trails have enough traffic to make you feel like a part of a community but not so busy they feel congested.

Enjoyed seeing the water throughout the whole trail. Perfect place to stretch your legs and spend a lunch break getting some fresh air. This trail is easily overlooked with all the activities available in Eureka Springs, but it is definitely worth a visit!

Nice walk along the water. Don’t miss the path to the top of the rock overlooking the lake!

I really enjoy going there. I can hike,mountain Bike, kayak and paddle board. It has it all. They have rv spots and cabins for rent plus new biking cabins.

Totally more than 8.4 miles. It’s 10.1 miles.
It’s beautiful. Access to the lake. Got to see a beaver

Beautiful scenery on this small trail. My only complaint is how short it was, but it would be the perfect trail if you want to do a quick hike.

Cool rock formations and pretty lake!

Loved it for a short hike! The water is gorgeous, the trail was kept clean.

Great hike, bird blinds quarry, creeks and hills...love this hike

Hike is fairly easy as most of it is flat ground. Great scenery through the woods, well marked trail. Turnaround point has a great view of Beaver lake.

My kids and I enjoyed this trail!

me and my husband Absolutely loved it

Surprisingly great trail. Well manicured and scenic. Looking forward to going back.

Came to Eureka Springs to explore the city, but I wanted to check this place out first. its a beautiful lake with pretty clear water. I didn’t get to make it to the dam, but i will definitely come back.
