I did the loop starting at Lake Ann TH, Pinyon, SBAT, Taylor Homestead, Back 40, Pinyon... A nice walk in the woods...!!

Small but nice. Nice people and beautiful scenery to photograph.

Really fun trail. My Garmin clocked the distance at 5.4 miles, not 3.4 as advertised.

Easy short hike with a big payoff
Be sure to go after a good rain.
Trail head is Almost exactly parallel to the state park entrance sign on Fayetteville end.... on opposite side of highway. Park in the lot stay on lot side and walk 100y back towards park. It will be on your left . Follow trail left until a clearing on right . Turn R there. If you get to a creek and bluffs. Turn around.
Trek poles and waterproof boots recommended!
Have fun !

I would recommend this trail, plenty of water along the trail and several good swimming holes. There was multiple water crossings so be prepared for that.

Short but sweet. Pretty much in my backyard. Glad people have been working on the trails recently.

Good workout first .75 miles, not very scenic in winter

Amazing trail! Did it in about 2.5 days which was a perfect pace January 14th-16th. Eagle rock loop has it all and offers a beautiful variety of scenery ranging from mountainous views to valleys covered in tall pines. Be prepared for the water crossings! Fortunately there were only around 4 big river crossings that required actually getting your feet and legs wet. I would say starting at little Missouri trail head was a good going counter clockwise. Especially if you want to get some of your major elevation gain out of the way and with only 7 miles to the vista, which makes a great first nights camp with its gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains. If you get the chance, do this trail!!

Fabulous views for a relatively short hike

One of my favorites. Easy, short hike in to the falls. Beautiful views. Gets pretty rocky and uneven close to the falls. The hike out is mostly uphill.

Little traveled trail to some great falls. Do it when doing Whitaker point.

Be mindful of the landslide that occurred in the counter-clockwise direction (mile 15 and 14) as of January 7th, 2019. But other than that, the trail was clearly marked and offered beautiful scenery. I like to recommend this trail to people that are just getting into backpacking, but even if you aren’t a beginner, you will love this small section of the Ozarks that Northwest Arkansas has to offer.

Great trail. My pomeranian was able to do it and loved it. The water was a little high when we went so water proof boots would probably be better than tennis shoes on this path.

Such a fun hike with great views. The rocks were intimidating at first glance, but made for a great experience.

I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. It has quite a bit of diversity. It follows around the lake which is best viewed during leaf off I suppose. The views will be more obstructed during other seasons. It travels through several amazing boulder fields and crosses a creek. The trail does some up and downing and the Lower Eagle Loop along with the length of the trail I would say this is a moderate intensity trail rather than easy. It's length provides a pretty good workout. All in All I loved this trail and will be back sometime to enjoy it again.

So when i walked this trail today, I renamed this trail "Mudback Ridge Trail" in my mind. The moss is dried up, so when trodded on it turned the ground easily into muddy and not mossy. If you like feeling like you are in the middle of the woods this is a good trail for that. Since you are in the middle of the woods there was no scenic views.

The North Rim trail was a good hike. The trail had a lot of big rocks in it. I'm glad that i was wearing my hiking boots because I could have had a few possible ankle rolls. From the cliff side I could see the forrest floor really well because it is winter time and there is no tree foliage. Unfortunatley, there was no critters for me to spy on from above.

January is a great time to go. We passed only four hikers.

Rocky, barely used/marked deer path. Not worth the drive.

Lovely little hike-and yes you do come UP on the way out-good exercise! The whole area is nice -Elise Falls is a little “on a around the corner” delight

Beautiful place. With watchful eyes we’ll bring our grandchildren soon. Trail is excellent. We went on around below the bluff line beyond Glory Hole. This added not only distance but the bluff line has a lot to offer the eyes. Nothing to not like-even get to take our dog ❤️

I have recently fallen in love with hiking so I ventured out to explore the base trail. I absolutely loved it! A great trail for beginners like me but shared by those with all levels of experience.

Great views, great hike! Not a ideal hike if you’re afraid of heights like me!

Beautiful trail even in winter

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.

This trail was a delightful surprise to me. For most of the trail you will be by the creek or close enough to hear it. I enjoyed seeing different parts of the creek because the creek gets smaller and bigger in places. The creek also can go from trickle sounds to roars.

Wonderful First Day hike! Or anytime of year!
