Explore the most popular hiking trails near Fayetteville with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Our hike was almost 6 miles on this trail. It was nice with lots of small trails connected. Saw some cool mushrooms, a box turtle, frog, salamander, and some other rock structures. Be sure to snap a pic of the map at the entry point before you go in so you know which way to go. There are other paths that will make the hike shorter if you like.

Worst trail in NWA. Poorly marked and overgrown. Very disappointed after a promising sign and pavilion. If you hike with snake boots, carry a machete, and enjoy walking hunched over due to branches while taking countless spiderwebs to the face, you might will enjoy this. If your used to clearly marked trails that are more than a foot wide stay away. Very rocky and shady with lots of chiggers and mosquitos. Lots of potential but very poorly maintained. **We turned back after 45 minutes due to getting lost and the trails being to overgrown for our dog.

Great easy/moderate hike in Fayetteville. The trailhead was super easy to find. It’s by a residential area. The trail itself was confusing, like others have said. The GPS helped tremendously and we actually had fun trying to find our way. Without the GPS though it would have been frustrating. It’s a beautiful trail and even though it was almost 90 degrees when we went, the tree cover definitely helped. I recommend it!

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.

Kristen and I did this trail on trip to fayetteville. So close to town but the trails are great! Big trees. Cool rocks. Nice views. Lots of elevation change. Loved it. It is now a trail system that is a bit confusing as we did not have map. But trails are great fun.

Beautiful, very well maintained trail. we followed the outermost circle, but there are quite a few places to shorten the hike if needed. Perfect for hiking, trail running, or mountain biking.

If you want to run a rustic trail this is it. decently marked with red markers. Overall good trail

Poorly marked trail. Without this App I would have been lost. But, with AllTrails I backtracked and found my way. Going clockwise the uphill trek was rocky and strenuous but once we leveled out it was easy to moderate. Nice hike!

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.

excellent trail!

I liked the trail. It's in need of some TLC but still enjoyable.

Nice and rainy hike.

Seemed like it was uphill a lot but it was really pretty and curvy and interesting and it really felt like I've burned a lot of calories I enjoyed myself.

Great place to spend a day. Trailhead is no longer accessible from HWY 62(Main Street). You must use the Kessler Mountain Park entrance on Cato Springs Road.

A very good trail. Part is a gravel road for a short distance then the rest is excellent single track. You first climb then it down hill. Great fun. Well constructed and marked

Trail can be confusing at times and opens into a couple fields that you have to figure your way through. Also ran into some cows, which was interesting although our dog was not fond of them haha. It was a pretty easy trail tho, just wish we were able to get closer to the water.

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!!

This trail is closed (11/1/17)...at least the rock city entrance. Anyone know why??

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

Not maintained at all!! I didn't feel comfortable doing it with two kids. We did 5 minutes and then turned around.

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.
