Multiple options. Walk around the parameter of the lake for an easy level hike. Take the trails up the side of the hills for a higher view and overhanging bluffs.

Good starter trail with a little incline. Once you get towards the back of the lake, it is really quiet. Loved the stream.

There are several trail around the lake. They are all quite easy and perfect for a nice walk on a spring day. Being just outside Eureka Springs makes it an easy getaway to nature. The trail has several wildflower species to enjoy. You may even spot a beaver on your stroll.

This is a great little trail with many beautiful spots along the way. A wonderful escape without going far from town. Lots of fun if you’re looking for an interesting, but fairly easy hike while visiting Eureka Springs!

Nice easy trail. Climbing back out can be challenging. We came in from the NE and walked an unmarked but well traveled trail to the upper pond and past the Spring that feeds it. A nice section to add on if you dont mind the old tires growing up along the trail.

Nice short little trail, we got on a trail that wasn't marked and found several tire piles, other then that, around the lake was nice.

Train was fun and easy. In parts it was wet but that’s because it rained all week. Has some nice bluffs and goes around the lake. Overall a good experience.

Nice short trail with some neat bluffs, if it is wet there will be a few slippery areas. I recommend starting it the upper entrance and then make the loop.

For me, the old dam was the most interesting to see. There were signs of fishing activity, and a handicapped access at the dam.

Easy hike! Pretty views the entire time. This trail would be good for all skill levels and for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time, but still wants to get outdoors.

Really great, easy hike. There is a view of the lake the whole time, as well as various “stops” with info about the dam, flora, and wildlife around the lake. Sycamore trail is great for all levels- very little incline. The bridges are slick though so step carefully. As for parking- follow the road to the dam for the parking lot (you’ll also see an info kiosk bout Black Bass Lake). Then walk towards the dam towards the trailhead where you can choose the sycamore or bluff trail.

Highly recommend this trail for a break from other Eureka Springs activities. The lower loop is easy and great for young children or physically challenged hikers. The Bluff view trail has great rock outcroppings that older kids can explore. It’s just a little rocky for some folks. It’s a pretty little hike either way.

Nice little trail. Just over a mile but perfect if you have limited time, but still want to get a quick hike in.

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.
