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.

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

Didn't finish all of it due to poison ivy and tall grass.

It is rocky but the trail clear. Nice hike. My dog loved it.

Had sum good views and great if you like ta picnic with picnic tables as Robinson trail which connects on the south end enjoyed it from Robinson Point to Beacon point bridge is bout 7 miles from parking at campground

Rocky forest hike sometimes with you not being able to find the trail, and some places have high grass. There will be wildlife on this hike, such as deer, snakes, and ticks. If you turn around and come back from Devil's Backbone, be sure to watch carefully for signs where it splits off in two. a "TRAIL" sign on your left, and a path straight forward. If you take a left, you'll be coming back to Georges Cove, if you keep going straight you'll end up at Shoal CR Trail RD which is around 3 miles away. Trust me, I learned my lesson the very hard way.

Overall, it's a decent trail, but with the tall grass and everything else, it should be planned out as a day hike with lots of water and snacks.

Really fun trail with lots of sights to see. Trail was a lot harder than I expected. Lots of hills and switchbacks. Started at Panther Bay and ended at Rocking Chair Resort. Would recommend to anyone but be prepared for a hilly hike.
