Brand New sidewalk throughout. Looks like the trail before was crushed stone and followed a different path in places?

The hike is quite nice, but the map is way off. I hiked about 5 miles total, and didn't even get to the end before I turned around. It was quite late, and on the way back, I could hear coyotes not far off.

This trail is one my local favorites! :)

It was a small city park for hiking and is now being changed to a small mountain bike park. Given how they have done others in NW AR I expect it will be an improvement

good easy trail. short and a little confusing at the turn around, I couldn't figure out a clear trail to follow but it was a beautiful day and I ran both trails on that side of the lake.

I really like the flood plain portion of the trail. The forest and bamboo look spooky. However, I'm not keen on trails that run right next to roads, which is what half the trail does. Good shape though. Lake Sequoyah has come a long way.

Not a bad short trail that also connects to a trail that goes farther up the road, then the road to the top. One property has goats, so that's always a fun sight. After a good rain the trail follows a temporary larger stream, adding to a small sense of adventure. Too short of a trail, but at least it's woodsy and quiet and not a far drive.

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

It's a good, relatively secluded, in-town paved trail. The creek can have a lot of trash, but it's a forested area connecting Veteran's Memorial at Lake Fayetteville, the NWA Mall, and a random area in Johnson that few know about. I usually turn around before crossing 71 from the west because I don't see the point in finishing that last end of the trail when I can avoid the noise and stay in the woods. Overall, I appreciate its existence.

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.

I think the trail was still under construction when I went. It and the park all a whole were a mess: trash in the parking area, and the trail poorly defined and overgrown with bushes. It's also mostly within sight and certainly within sound of traffic, lacking the peace other city parks can have. However, at least it's woodsy, I found many unique fungi and a box turtle.

Nice little loop but close to the road. Might be fun for mountain biking. We hiked it. No real features like water or anything. But pretty trees.

This is a very easy walk on a paved pathway. if you start at what the guide says is the trail head, you have a very nice and quick lollipop trail to follow. However you are parking on the side of a busy street. If you go to the west side of the park there is plenty of parking in a marked parking lot, which might be a better place to leave your car.

The trail itself is suitable for everyone and is along a paved pathway. There are a few spots where the trees have created un uneven surface in the pavement that may make it difficult for a very short section to someone in a wheel chair.

The path following the creak was very nice and you could hear lots of different birds. If made you think your sound machine for white noise was stuck on the birds setting. For the time I had on this trip to Fayetteville, this trail got me outside and I learned about a park I had not visited before.

This was a great hike for my little ones and I! Beautiful views! We went in spring time when the grass was short (probably would be more difficult during summer when grass is tall). Big parking lot, pier, trails and waterfall!

Quick simple trail. Fayetteville’s little gem. They’ve been constructing a mountain bike trail through but doesn’t mess up the flow of the original trail. Great daily run.

I would like to do this hike but don’t see any place to park a vehicle and the road is a small 2 lane with no shoulders.

Nice little trail for a quick dog walk. Take 20-30min to walk around.
Good parking.

Good dog walk. Beautiful park. Pavement all around, make it easy walking or running. Not so exciting doh.
Has picnic areas and a jungle gym.
Would recommend it!!

It's not a peaceful trail because the traffic is so near you but it is a simple trail.

It's a very nice paved trail but if you do not know where you are going then you will get lost because there are other trail heads.

Nice trail with nice view of the lake. Some portions of the path were difficult to go through or not clearly marked.

The "trailhead" is kinda in a weird spot, for whatever that's worth. The trail just sorta starts next to a road. No place to park and nowhere to walk up to it that isn't on a road. So, don't think that you need to start there. It's real silly. Especially since they put that new parking lot in on Gregg by the Joyce intersection. That thing is as dope as a parking lot can be.

Alright, the trail itself. For being a paved trail running through (and under) a city, it's actually pretty pleasant. The convenience of location, lots of trees everywhere , birds, and other critters running around make up for any of the slight annoyances encountered due to being in a city. Like noise pollution... or mysterious super hardcore fences topped with barbed wire that you'd think someone would care about since they went to all the trouble of putting it up but maybe they really don't care because it was knocked down and no one fixed it.

The trail dumps out at Veteran's Park (Lake Fayetteville) and gives you access to the NWA Mall. So, that's nice I guess.

All in all, it's a part of the Razorback Greenway which is a nice thing to have and it's a nice part of it at that. But it's not like it's a real nature trail. It's a very small road for people and bikes.

An easy trail with great lake views. It gets a little confusing north of the spillway, but it's not too bad. There's a horse farm nearby and they clearly use the trail, though they don't abuse it. Via horse might be the best way to access the Island and Spillway trails. Both require crossing the spillway, and it was too high when we visited, though water levels are still pretty low state-wide. The spillway area is quite pretty. If you're in the area, this and the Rookery trail would make for a nice, easy outing.
