Great trail, prob closer to easy vs moderate but enjoyable terrain

Great trail with diverse rocky terrain! We did turned into the lake loop. Enough space for heavy traffic and but you still feel secluded. Our 7 month old lab did Great on and off the leash. This lake is not swimming friendly. The trail head has a pic of what looks like large water moccasins with a sign that states “swimming in the lake is not recommended.” We did see a snake on St. Patty’s day. Thanks St. Patrick!

Nice trail, well maintained, well marked with white blazes and fairly gentle grades for this area. Very enjoyable day hike. Bring water and a lunch and make a great day of it!

excellent trail!

We have hiked this trail many times and love it! Some of the terrain can be ruff depending on what loops you take. That being said I was able to hike with our 1 year old in a carrier on my back so I would say that it’s a fairly easy trail. We did take our dog and he got covered in ticks so make sure you spray down. It’s a beautiful and peaceful hike to spend a few hours on. We have seen deer, squirrels, and armadillo.

Very pretty

It was a pleasant hike, well marked trail. Easy to lightly moderate.

It’s an alright trail. Probably better when the trees aren’t all dead in the winter. It turns into a long stretch of the same thing towards the end, good views though.

I agree with the others that this trail description needs to be updated. There are many segments of this larger trail and really need their own pages. We did the Homestead Trail portion, and ended up doing the out and back map shown on this app, mainly because we were unsure how far the connecting loop would be. (Homestead connects to Tompkins and back to Homestead, this app doesn’t show that.)

Nice easy to moderate trail through the pines with great views of the lake! Glad we went, but more info on these segments would make things easier.

Great Trail Wonderful water features. Late winter hike. Definitely do this again when foliage returns.

Equinox hike along a wonderful creek

Lots of different offshoot trails which are great to switch things up whenever you go back. Very clearly marked with white diamonds- no mile markers however.

Too easy for a hike. But there are hiking trails adjacent to it.

This is a flat, out-and-back paved trail. It’s a well maintained path. This trail is connected to the Crystal Bridges Trail so if you are looking for extra miles it’s an easy add on. The trail can be busy at times, especially with bikers due to the numerous dirt trails in the area. There is a bike station on it for any bikers and bathroom facilities as well. Overall a good trail if you want to go running, walking or biking.

Good trail well maintained. This is a 9 mile trail per Hobbs State Park.

Nice, easy trail for walking/running/biking. One short section that depending on your fitness if you’re biking that might offer a challenge as its steep. This trail is typically busy due to its location by Crystal Bridges but is my go-to place when I just want to get outside and enjoy the day. You can continue on with the North Bentonville Trail if looking for additional mileage or connect to several dirt trails connecting to it, though watch for mountain bikers.

Loved this trail. We didn’t get to spend as much time on it as we wanted but definitely want to come back.

This was a nice little trail for a short walk. The scenery was beautiful just wish the trail had been longer.

Great trail, very well maintained.

Nicely paced trail. Wide enough to accommodate walkers/runners/cyclists. I would rate this as easy not moderate Trail. Close enough to my house where I’d do it again when wanting a quick walk.

Made the Beachum loop today. 4 miles. Saw probably close to 10 deer. Lovely day in the woods with the sun shining. It has rained heavily over the past few days, so essentially the whole trail was damp, but it’s mostly a rocky path so not too much in the way of mud. Of note, there are several creeks/stream crossing, all but the last it was easy enough to hop across rocks without getting feet wet. The last crossing however there was no avoiding going through knee high water., despite my spending quite a bit of time searching for a better crossing. Looks like there used to be a wooden bridge but it is now washed out. All in all a great hike save for the wet feet for the last half mile.

It's a paved trail with many people, but it is big enough to accommodate the amount of people! This trail is well maintained and safe. It has lake views, many parks, disc golf, bathrooms, wildlife, waterfalls, and smaller trails if you are wanting to get a little "lost". Loved running here with my pooch!

What a neat treasure so close to Eureka Springs. The easy terrain and distance make it perfect for children or other reluctant hikers in your group. The main trail is very clear and stream crossings have sturdy bridges. There are plenty of additional trails which branch off. The lake is surrounded by stunning bluffs and the same tall pine (?) trees that line highway 62 on your drive in. The parking area is just below the dam and there is room for several cars. A map of the park and it's trails are posted there. (There is one additional trail head on the road in with room for 1 car to park) There is an additional higher elevation parking area for handicap parking which puts you on the same level as the lake. The path on that side of the lake is wide and relatively flat. There is a picnic table next to the lake on that side about 5 or 10 minutes from the upper trail head.

If you are looking for something a bit more ambitious Lake Leatherwood is close by and larger. The dam at Leatherwood is also a bit more fun as you can actually walk across it. It does not have quite the same beautiful bluffs that Black Bass has however.

If you have an hour - choose Black Bass. If you have 3 hours choose Leatherwood. They are both great.

good trail, picnic tables every mile. tables have a you are here map. no one on the trail while I was there. did a round trip, so it was about 13 miles. wide trail.

Great starting distance. Have hiked/biked it. Easy

Lots of mountain bikers & a confusing trail for just walking.

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.
