Getting There

Farkleberry Trail is a short lakeside trail along the southern shores of Lake Maumelle. The current trail is about 0.35-miles long. Note that the original trail, according to signage at the site, was only 0.13-miles long, but has obviously been extended and has potential to grow longer. This short walk offers nice views of the lake, bird watching opportunities, and wildflower viewing. NOTE: Lake Maumelle is a protected drinking water source and no swimming, wading, canoeing, kayaking, or any activity that allows bodily contact, is prohibited at this location. Please follow these rules!

Trail needs serious maintenance. Trees down all across the trail and it's completely overgrown. NOT DOG FRIENDLY: thorn bushes stretch across the trail and can hurt your pup. There is also several washed out areas with steep drop offs so pup owners watch them carefully!

First to Review

Short lakeside trail with very light use. This trail offers nice views of Lake Maumelle. It is short, but has potential to offer nice hiking close to Little Rock. Trail also has a variety of wildflowers along the trail and offers birdwatching opportunities. The park at the trailhead, Loon Park, is not used heavily but fisherman are often seen at the park.
