    Jennifer Utne reviewed Black Bass Lake Trail

    4 months ago

    What a neat treasure so close to Eureka Springs. The easy terrain and distance make it perfect for children or other reluctant hikers in your group. The main trail is very clear and stream crossings have sturdy bridges. There are plenty of additional trails which branch off. The lake is surrounded by stunning bluffs and the same tall pine (?) trees that line highway 62 on your drive in. The parking area is just below the dam and there is room for several cars. A map of the park and it's trails are posted there. (There is one additional trail head on the road in with room for 1 car to park) There is an additional higher elevation parking area for handicap parking which puts you on the same level as the lake. The path on that side of the lake is wide and relatively flat. There is a picnic table next to the lake on that side about 5 or 10 minutes from the upper trail head.

    If you are looking for something a bit more ambitious Lake Leatherwood is close by and larger. The dam at Leatherwood is also a bit more fun as you can actually walk across it. It does not have quite the same beautiful bluffs that Black Bass has however.

    If you have an hour - choose Black Bass. If you have 3 hours choose Leatherwood. They are both great.
