Basically a walking path from the trailhead on Poplar Street to the picnic Area at the Lake Atalanta park. Short little downhill trail with a seriously technical rock section before the bridge. After the bridge things mellow out and then a flat path to the pavilion.

I loved Lake Atlanta as a kid and was so excited to take my 4 children there since the recent renovation. Today we walked the sidewalk trail around the lake. Then walked the trail on the other side of the lake that goes to the Bike Park. This is an excellent trail for families. The wide sidewalks allow family members with strollers or wheel chairs safe & easy access to experiencing the beautiful scenery of NWA woods. The new park equipment is fun & unique. The only thing i would recommend are more picnic tables and swings for the little ones.

The Lake Atalanta trail as shown here is not something to seek out. And things get a bit confusing now that they've re-opened the lake area, but are still doing some construction. And once you get to the lake you may, as I did, despair. The city of Rogers has, indeed, paved paradise and put up a parking lot.

Plenty of sod replaces all the nasty trees and native plants, and a sterile sidewalk and lots of fencing protect you from any of the icky nature you may encounter. You came to see it, but you don't want to get too close!

There is hope, however. The biking trails around the lake provide the experience I, and I imagine *you*, are looking for. Deer, squirrels, small creeks, tiny waterfalls, potential waterfalls, rocky outcroppings, gorgeous bluffs, and lovely lake views await you once you leave the the soulless sidewalk. Seriously, the minute you see a real dirt trail, get on it. The bike trails are pretty well labeled and easy to follow. You're almost always in sight of the paved path and the lake, so it's nearly impossible to get lost or even a little turned around.

The lake area is quite lovely, and the new construction will surely encourage use of the area, as it is well-designed and accessible to all. For my money, though, I say get out of there ASAP and get on the bike trails. You won't be disappointed.

Easy loop around the lake. Parked by the bathrooms at the park entrance. Lots of people fishing. You can walk on the road, but there some wooded trails further up the surrounding hills which don't much distance to the overall distance. Our four kids and small dog did fine, though the 4 and 7 year old began complaining the last 1/4 mile.

It was a nice outing, did not take the trail off the trailhead but started at the restrooms and went around the lake. It had very well kept trails with several spurs.

I have hiked and biked. The land is pretty in places and lack luster in others. They are adding off-road biking trails now. On the north side driving in, the trail that goes up and comes back just next to the restroom and road has a nice rock wall. There is a neat old spring if you cross the road and follow that back up in the direction of the rogers square. The people are a bit trashy though. Found a naked picture under a rock behind this spring. Really gross, people. Find a room already.

This is a lot longer than it used to be. They're adding trails out around the lake, and it is looking great

I have walked this trail more times than I can remember.Great place to walk.Easy for all ages .Trail runs close to a small man made lake .All though it is right in the downtown area it is very common to see wildlife such as Frogs ,Turtles ,Lizards,Snakes,Birds ,Deer,and Ducks.
Easier to start the trail at the park opposed to starting at Popular ST. Recomend walking around the lake as well (another mile or so).
