I liked it very much.. my first time on the Pigeon Creek Trails west side of Hwy 201. Use the parking on east side of 201 as it is more visible and safe (in my opinion). Follow the color coded trail markers and signs and you can get in some good mountain biking and hiking. Trails are well kept, a few small blowdowns and loose rocks but all in all it was great, hiked all of it in the shade.

My first time at Pigeon Creek, what a treat! By chance I met the creator of most of the bike trails in the area, including Richard “Zep” from Bakersfield. Loved the hike, took the upper Pigeon Trail and the Lower on the return. Trails well marked but a little confusing at few junctions, which needed better markings. All in all I loved it, will come back.

Very good hike. There were two large trees down in the trail path, from recent storms. Beautiful view off the bluff.

Nice drive along the White River, some good overlooks. Calico Rock is a pleasant stop. Eat at Jo-Jo's Catfish Wharf just noerth of Mountain View when you get to the end, it's worth the drive!

Trails pretty well marked with blue blazes or blue tree tags. Needs some maintenance but I love the trail. Notified the Corp about missing markers when you get to the areas to go around a cove as they are poorly marked. Someone added a few piles of stacked rocks where the blue blazes were missing. Thank you! Definitely a no tennis shoe track.

Love this trail. Well marked for the most part with blue blazes or blue tree tags. It does need some maintenance as parts are overgrown and lots of branches were down. Spent time doing clean up. Good hiking boots are a must for the first mile or more, very rocky and you may turn an ankle. Two big trees down at about the 1.5 mile area (I called the Corps to report). Will do again when it’s cooler. Did this and I continued on to Devils Backbone.

Nice, easy walk, Watch for the nesting pair of Bald Eagles.. Hiked this back in 2013..

Nice short trail with good overlook. Little hard to find the TH.

the trail is a very nice one and not too difficult, as long as you're fine with the hundreds of spiders you'll need to clear before being able to walk... not enjoyable at all.. which is a pity as its a great environment.

So much to see. Get your cameras out, you won't want to miss the photo ops. This is God's country. Pure nature lovers will be fulfilled.

Beautiful trail but lots of pebbles and hills. I thoroughly enjoyed this but would not consider this an easy trail but rather moderate. Worth checking out.

The possibilities for things to do are endless! And I mean that in the most literal sense. I’ve been coming here since I was a child and I’m STILL finding new things to do and places to explore. This stretch of the Ozarks is some of God’s finest handiwork.

The trails are not too difficult and some decent scenery to look at but they are not marked well at all. It's easy to get off on another trail without even realizing it.

Easy, and not very hilly in or out. I plan to return and take my grand kids (ages 6-8) there.

Could be marked better.Got a little confused about where we were on trail a couple times

It was a pretty trail and well maintained. Easy to follow as well. It connects to a larger trail if you want to take that option. The end of the trail has a lake view. It just wasn’t what I was expecting. I was use to more difficult trails.

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.

Nice lake views, moderate hill slope, pleasant woodland trail with tall pines.

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.

good trail, good weather today. well marked. first time I used all trails.

You can hike south 6 miles from Panther Bay down to Robinson Point, ample parking at trailheads either end.
Or, you can also hike north across Highway 101, then north on David's Trail along the eastern shore of Lake Norfork.
I believe David's Trail is approx 17 miles long (linear) if the Robinson Point loop is included.

Excellent 3-mile loop. This loop is connected to David's Trail, 17 miles linear, from Robinson Point Road (this trailhead) north to Panther Bay park, then walk across Highway 101 bridge, follow David's Trail north up the east side of Lake Norfork.

This is one of five sections of 13-mile linear Norfork Trail (six trailheads). This is a point-to-point linear trail, north trailhead on Georges Cove Road, south trailhead drive through Sycamore Highlands subdivision.
Always weedy by late summer. Arkansas Master Naturalists volunteers clear Norfork Trail once annually in early winter with blowers and trimmers, best hiking in winter after its annual maintenance.
Army Corps of Engineers office provides brochure/maps describing all five sections.

Plan on at least 2 hrs. Dog friendly. Marked fairly well!

Celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary at Robinson Campground. We enjoyed hiking the Point Trail! Beautiful views from the bluff! We decided to explore the caves to the right of the viewing area as mentioned by another reviewer. Beware! There was definitely something occupying it but we didn't stay around to find out what was! Overall a great little hike. Our dogs enjoyed it too!

Very fun hike with a beautiful view. has many different sidetrails so you can spend quite a bit of time here.

nice trail, has a few hills that could be challenging for some but is excellent workout and hiking trail.

It is well groomed ... pebbles blanket most of the trail. Slight undulations. You never really get into the wild and maintain some degree of contact to a road albeit separated by trees. Best for trail running, particularly for a person who doesn't want to get "too remote" in case something goes wrong.

There is a 5k turn around marker for anyone wanting to do cross country running.

Going back tomorrow to trail run it. Note: I am from NH. This is not a moderate trail by my standards and I am 6'3" 254lbs. I would grade this as easy unless you run it.

Casual trail for an easy, pleasant outing. Please, be cautious of mountain bikers so that they, and you, stay safe.

Fairly easy trails, but not marked well at all. The colors are repeated and the trails split constantly creating great confusion. Some parts are grown up and the trails are loaded with spiders, grasshoppers and ticks. Do not recommend for dogs for this reason. No views just lots of trees and complicated trails. Be prepared to wander through the woods for a while.
