Loved this hike during my trip through Arkansas. Not too easy not too hard, I usually prefer more mountainous hikes but this was perfect. Some parts are closed until April 23rd by the way.
excellent hike. not too strenuous but a good workout. and lots of sights and pic opps. highly recommend.
Pleasant trail, well-traveled and not at all arduous. There are lovely views of the lake, a spring, caves and bluffs, and the much-photographed homestead. Rather than hike the entire loop, we took a shortcut back described in Tim Ernst's book, making the trip closer to 4 miles. Sometimes the shortcut includes a waterfall, but not at this time of year.
Note that it's $5 to enter the park area, honor system on Sundays.
Awesome trail with some prehistoric Indian bluf shelters and some other historic sites. Not sure when this trail was last updated but I clocked it with my Under Armor MapMyRun app at 6.18 from trailhead back to trailhead.
Lots of trees down over the trail. Some areas were eroded as well by the lake. Overall was a great hike and challenging to this new hiker.
Was a beast....lost of downed timber over trail, washed away in some areas.
Great little lakeside trail. Well marked with some primitive campsites, and cool features like a homestead farm and cave dwellings. Perfect for a trail run.
Such an awesome trail!! Some really great minimalist camping sites!
Same trail as the "Lost Bridge Loop". Great trail for a short afternoon hike with some things to see along the way like an old home place and a small cave.
Only complaint is there are several large trees across the trail and the area by the marina is pretty trashy with styrofoam that has washed up from old boat docks.
