This is a great trail for getting out on a short day hike. We’ve taken the kids, the 9 & 6 year old did great. The 3 year old rode in a carrier & was over it about mile 3 but he prevailed. Ha! It’s got a great stopping spot for snacks & a breather at the lake.

Very nice and quick!

this trail name is actually Beacham trail. if you decide to walk it backwards like we decided to, you'll need to know that. We went the Leatherwood route and it took us way far away from where we wanted to be. Many trails in that area, and I think we walked them all! Beautiful day for it thankfully!

Beautiful day with sunshine and my granddaughter

One of my favorites in the area. Been here two times already, it never disappoints.

Great weather for a hike! We missed most of the fall color, but was still very lovely. The damn bridge is beautiful.

Found myself lost and confused a lot on this trail. I had no idea where I was! I enjoyed it but I don’t really know how to read the map I think

Had a great time on this trail. About 2 miles around the lake on the bluff trail. Some inclines but all in all a pretty easy walk.

Lovely views and well-marked trails. Hiked here with Outdoor Adventures for Women and really loved it.

Great trail for the whole family.

Pretty little hike with small bluffs and lake shore.

Very pretty easy fall hike. Varied views.

Really enjoyed this short loop through the woods. Fairly easy trail, all wooded and shady.

Nice, easy hike

Nice hike but pay attention to trail after damn. Not clearly marked

Good variety of scenery, autumn leaves are turning gold and a few red. Hiked on a Monday morning, saw 2 mountain bikers and 4 other hikers during my walk. Fairly easy hike, view of the water was very pretty.

Very nice quick and peaceful hike! Was about a mile. Reflection of trees in water was awesome.

4 mile loop around the lake. Nice hike. Restrooms at beginning of trail near cabins.

Fun, easy and short. Very pretty hike and good for beginners.

Great hike

This was a great first overnight backpacking experience for my girlfriend and me. It was long and strenuous enough to test us without being enough to break us.
It was a beautiful walk in the woods. We arrived much later than we intended. Being our first trip, we didn't realize how much preparation time we needed.
The sun had dipped below the horizon by the time we made it to the campsite. Immediately upon arrival, we were invited to the community fire by the NWA Hiking Club. Stories and drinks were shared, and good times were had by all.
The next morning began with breakfast and a light rain. I felt incredible (a symptom of sleeping outdoors), and just wanted to walk. Not finish, but walk. I had to let my legs go. The light rain had awakened and beautified the forest, and my girlfriend and I decided to "hike our own hike". I walked ahead, enjoying walking my own pace and being alone in the woods. The lack of vistas, and the anticlimactic overlook take nothing away from this trail. Walk this trail to be in the forest. To smell the earth and feel its life.

Beautiful walk in the woods.

Beautiful hike!

Peaceful hike, well worn path and clear. I did the short course. Not much as far as views on the short path. Worth a short trip.

Perfect place to run. First experience ran the loop, it's a little under 7 miles. Switched the shoes and went horse trail running and found a cool fox hole near the top of round mountain (see photos). The horse trails were well cut, a few overgrown weeds but nothing unmanageable. I didn't use any bug spray no ticks or chiggers. only downfall is that horse trail was unclear going up round mountain but overall a great experience.

Nice trail. Trees and lake view. The damn is neat. Got lost past the damn. Very pretty.

This is a nice, well maintained trail that is easy to follow. It is a relatively easy trail if you are in modest shape but did see one lady struggling a little coming up out of the valley as there is some elevation gain. You start at the top so what goes down must come up. Some interesting rock formations and the cave was nice. The cave is a short distance off the standard trail but if you pay attention you will see a path leading up to a rock formation and it is there so do t miss it.

Nice easy short trail. The trail is easy to follow. Nothing really exciting to see on this one. There are 3 bridges that cross the creek but no water today unfortunately. This trail at least felt more like s bike compared to the Van Winkle trail next to it. You can at least combine the two trails for a about a 1.4 mile walk/hike. Good paced parking lot and bathrooms so that’s always a plus.

Nice trail. Took us about an hour and a half to do the loop. End of September and all the Creeks were dried up. East end of the lake and dam area were the nicest stretch.

Benches along the way. Well maintained trail.
