Nice shorter trail. Easy to follow

A good trail, but very stony. We didn’t finish our intended walk but turned around early, since walking was so slow.

Dog friendly trail, low traffic. lots of toe grabbers and ankle breakers covered in thick leaves. beautiful views over the lake.

Beautiful hike. The bluffs views were amazing today. One hint you need to know is once you get to the bench on your right, take the right trail. It is very well marked. The leaves are falling so without the arrows, it would’ve been a little tough.

Hiked the trail in November. Trail is well marked. To get lake view you have to go off the trail. Captured some nice images of the fall colors.

Nice cool fall morning, started at 45 degrees, 60 at the end. Well marked, clean... love this hike...

Narrow, rocky, not difficult trail that is beautiful in the fall. It has some steeper areas, but the majority is gently sloped. It is easy to end up on different loops, but they are loops, so you get back to the main trail eventually:) Will definitely go back.

Rained out today, ended early.

Sorry, duplicate rating.

Trail in good condition, typical late summer plant growth, lots of spiders. At the end the trail was blocked by high water and thick underbrush, had to turn around.

I had low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. The trail is very well marked. I loved all of the mature cedar trees. The majority of the trail was shaded which made it enjoyable even in July. I will definitely come back and hike this again in the fall. There was one area where the water was over the trail, but getting around it was no problem.

I hated this trail. Went with my dog 5/22. FULL of growth and not maintained at all. We didn’t make it two miles and were covered with ticks - grass on the trail was up to my knees. Nothing to see either. You could just walk through any woods and get yourself covered in chiggers and ticks and see the same thing. The prettiest thing on this trail is the big stone “David’s Trail” trailhead marker. It was boring and awful. Will never go back.

Well marked, great views, enjoyed this!

Not necessarily a trail as it is a (beautiful) campground. Rock beach was nice and scenery views are great!

Love it!!

My dog and I enjoyed this trail middle spring and the dogwood trees were gorgeous throughout as well as lake views! Be sure to do a thorough tick check when you finish, however our tick problem could very well be due to the fact that we got off the trail on the return trip when a 4-wheeler trail crossed our path. I can’t give an accurate time it should take to complete this trail due to our little detour but would definitely try this trail out again! There are a few stream and creek crossings which I was easily able to maneuver without getting my shoes soaked and the dog enjoyed the multiple opportunities to get her feet wet!

Had a great day to hike. we went 4 1/2 miles in and turned around and came back to the parking lot. This trail is beautiful with just the right amount of ups and downs!

This is a nice drive, but there's an even prettier one that takes a little less time. Take 5 out of Mountain View, but instead of following 5 all the way to Calico Rock, turn left on 14 at Allison (look for Anglers Resort on the right). Follow 14 to 341 (Push Mountain Rd.) and take a right. Very curvy road and a little steep at one point, but well constructed and has some beautiful views.. At end of 341, you can turn right onto 201 and then left onto 5, which will take you into Mountain Home. OR you can turn left onto 201 and stay on it 'til you get to the Sheid Hopper Bypass. Cross Bypass (see Library on the right) and drive into Mountain Home from there.

Lovely trail and lakeside experience! Unfortunately, you can hear car noise because of the location. It is, however, close to town and has great lights on the water at night (from the hotel across the way). We have been blessed to see beavers, bald eagles, and turtles (everywhere!) here. Don't miss it, it truly is easy and a good spot!

Great trail with beautiful views! I hiked this trail while wearing my 19 lb 1 year old and with my 5 year old in tow. Since the leaves have dropped it was a bit harder to see the trail once it got dark. There are trail markers on the trees that helped a lot! This is definitely a trail I would love to do again!

Excellent hike. Moderate as explained. Loop at the end affords two nice views of the lake. Sat at one and enjoyed the score for a bit. The second is off the path a bit and can be seen by the split rail fence. High vis during hunting season may be a wise choice as near hunting area. Weather was beautiful for a hike today, only saw 2 others all day. Well worth the 2 hour hike. Sign at the park entrance indicates free camping after October 31 until park closes.

My second time on this trail, temp was 44 when I started. Sunny so staying warm wasn't too much of an issue (LOL) if you keep moving. No triathlon today, had the trail to myself, met two other hikers. Trail is well maintained, no issues even after recent heavy rains. Only went to mile post table 3 before turning around and changing clothes back at truck. Did Robinson's Point afterwards. Great day, beautiful trail, wonderful smells and colors. Give it a couple weeks and the dogwoods will completely turn.

This was my second hike on this trail, although the temp was about 40 degrees less.. great view from the bluff at the end, trees are changing colors, smells are great. Trail has some new markers, easier to follow. Met 12 other hikers so it must be the season to get out.

Still love it... well maintained, well worn tracks. Pay attention to the markers.

Enjoyable hike, easy access, well marked trail. Beautiful view of lake at the loop end.

First time here, started at main parking lot on Robinson Point and went out Robinson Point trail first, then on to Davids Trail. Only made it to the 62/412 bridge and turned around, total was 11.4. Be prepared for some workouts the longer you are out there, lol. Well marked and wide as a country lane....
