Great paved path for walking or running with a lot of little trails branching off of it. pretty view in the trees but close to the city, so it is easy to get to in the middle of the day.

I thought that it was nice that this trail was paved. However, there was more man made scenery than nature. I could hear the main road most of the time and that distracted me from the sounds of nature. Also, there was some machinery that was fenced off and it was loud walking next to it. I did get some good milage walking this trail all the way to the campsites and then back to the CCC water tower.

Great little hike around the lake! As someone else mentioned, the name of the trail is actually Beacham Trail. It was pretty wet and muddy due to recent rain, but still nice. The only sketchy part was the last 0.3 miles where you cross back over the river...it looks like the walking bridge or crossing was washed away at some point, so we got a little wetter than we planned with the high water from the rain. Would definitely do again!

It is a fun little trail to walk or run.

Easy, well maintained trail. Part of the trail is the Rock Ledges trail so a part of it is dirt/mulch. This is part the Crystal Bridges area and you will see some of the art during your walk. I was lucky today to come across a herd of about 20 deer so that was a nice surprise. There is still construction going on with some of the exhibits but the trail was still enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this trail. It was what I needed after some holiday over indulging. I think "moderate" is pretty appropriate for this one. I did it at the end of December 35-40degrees, all the falls were running and that added some cool points to it. Only a couple other hikers on the trail the day I did it. I started right at the entrance for Redding Camp Ground and did the west side first. Made it out to Spy Rock and back down the east side of the loop GPS said it was 7.45 miles 2 hours 59 minutes moving and 52 minutes stopped.

great trail 5.5 miles, ran 2 loops yesterday. it also leads to other trails so lots of options for a day run.

Pave walk, great for ADA accessibility. Not many of those. Just a brief walk to stretch legs.

Great views of the city and state capital building!

Very nice trail, super pretty and enjoyable. Did it with my dog. Pretty gentle and well marked. A few downed trees on the southern parts of trail. One tree also ripped up the trail sign at the intersection of east and west sections of trail, but can still find trail easily enough.

Paved trail (maybe about 5-6 miles) for easy walking/biking. Can be quite busy in peak months/on a nice day. Not many spaces for parking in the lot so people sometimes park along the road, which is already narrow.

It's a very nice and peaceful nature trail. Part of the loop runs next to a creek.

Not much to say about this one. It's a nice park with paved trails and plenty of space to roam about.

It's on the far end of town for me, but it's almost as good as an in town trail gets, paved or dirt. The dirt trail isn't as special now that there's the paved trail because there's less seclusion, but both are still beautiful. You can hike one, jog the other on a different day. It's a good length for a fitness excursion, and several stretches near parking lots are attractive enough to enjoy yourself even if you come for frequent, shorter excursions that require doubling back.

Gulley is one of my main city park walks. It has a gym station, a creek, a 0.3 mile stretch that leaves most people behind and I can do beginner running without self-consciousness, and it has a good field of view from the northwest side.

Nice hike. Had some rain a couple days before so the creek was running so crossing it with it being a bit chilly out was a no-go. The waterfall was flowing though so that was good. The homesite was interesting. Trail wasn’t busy when we started but was picking up on our way back.

Easily accessible, plus you don’t have to do the entire trail. One part is exactly 5k, so it’s good for training runs.

Easy, mostly flat paved trail with lots of info on the regions of Arkansas. Would be great for 4-5th graders field trip.

Great for an easy wind-down-the-day stroll in a neighborhood pocket park.

This trail is great for any ages, especially older folks in the local HSV area. Everything is paved. Plenty of Parking at the trailhead. Great Fish Pond at the end. Has a canopy, grill and tables to have lunch. Ran it quickly. Walk would probably take 15-20. Be sure to hang at the pond for at least as long as you spend hiking!

this trail name is actually Beacham trail. if you decide to walk it backwards like we decided to, you'll need to know that. We went the Leatherwood route and it took us way far away from where we wanted to be. Many trails in that area, and I think we walked them all! Beautiful day for it thankfully!

nice for a person like me with a cane
