I love this trail. Met Mike about a year ago who was the caretaker of the lake. Much education by Mike and so appreciated. The cows have been approved by the City of Fayetteville to help with clearing. Yep u have to watch your step especially in the cow trails but worth it. I have seen Bald Eagles in the winter months. Dog friendly. Try to hike the PreCivil War Wall. It is so Interesting.

If it’s been raining within a week of your hike it will be pretty muddy on the back end. All and all it’s a nice trail.

needs a little TLC. fun to do but nothing spectacular.

It's a nice enough trail, with plenty of great views of the lake, but it also basically runs through several backyards (or at least close enough to the houses that you feel like you're in their backyard) and a few of them make it apparent that your presence isn't necessarily appreciated. Though, that was just my takeaway, so your mileage may vary on how worthwhile the trail is.

The trail definitely has some great views of the lake. Unfortunately, it also runs through what appears to be someone's cow pasture. Which is something that very much detracts away from the overall experience. Especially when there happen to be a whole flock of cows right up on the trail.

Good trail along the lake. I agree with others that it was kind of hard to follow at times, could have been because it was mostly covered with leaves. There were a few houses at different points and a nice little picnic area with a table. The first little bit of the trail is alongside the highway but in the woods. Others that we passed on the trail said they had seen eagles! As an avid hiker I would rate this as easy and not real strenuous. Nice walk through the woods though!

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

Has a lot of potential. There's lots of views of the lake branches and creek crossing. Often the water level rises enough to make the area a tricky wetland to traverse. Sections have cow fields and I'm not 100% sure I got to the end of the trail or just lost it. It needs to be more defined on the second half, but otherwise good fun.

beautiful trail. good incline. a little hard to follow at times, especially with all the leaves and the turn around point was confusing but overall it was a good run for 3 mile trail.

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.

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.

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.

Good incline and a good way to get your heart rate up while hiking. The overall trail was a bit overgrown and someone built a house at the end. I was hoping there was an overlook but the trees were to thick. Probably hiking in winter/late fall would be the prettiest. Pretty trail, though.

pretty sweet, cool mixture of scenery, definitely needs more blazing but its usually got it when you need it and doesn't have any when you don't.
recent rain has put lots of debris on the trail, cows have torn up a good bit of trail and made it stinky
my GPS came out at 4.1miles not 4.9

but overall ill probably be doing it again

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.

pretty chill, not much elevation gain/loss. second quarter is kinda unkempt, the rest is great. ok views of the lake. the ticks are in full swing

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

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

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.

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.

This trail starts out great with nice views of the water. Once you get to the cow pasture just go back as there are limited markers, the ones there are confusing, most of it is mud and cow mess, etc. This trail had a lot of potential but was just all over the place. My dog loved the cows!
