This is a great trail for getting out on a short day hike. We’ve taken the kids, the 9 & 6 year old did great. The 3 year old rode in a carrier & was over it about mile 3 but he prevailed. Ha! It’s got a great stopping spot for snacks & a breather at the lake.

Very nice and quick!

Beautiful day with sunshine and my granddaughter

One of my favorites in the area. Been here two times already, it never disappoints.

Found myself lost and confused a lot on this trail. I had no idea where I was! I enjoyed it but I don’t really know how to read the map I think

I got on this trail and took a wrong turn and ended up burning most of the day on it. Once I began to lose daylight I had to get off the trail and take the rest of the way on the adjacent highway so to be sure not to miss the 5:00 deadline so I could get my car out of the visitor center. It was a beautiful hike and and a wonderful day, however I wasn’t sure where I was at for a lot of it and I found the trails mostly unmarked and the map confusing.

We walked the paved loop with two small kids - a great afternoon family walk spot!

Great trail for the whole family.

Pretty little hike with small bluffs and lake shore.

Good variety of scenery, autumn leaves are turning gold and a few red. Hiked on a Monday morning, saw 2 mountain bikers and 4 other hikers during my walk. Fairly easy hike, view of the water was very pretty.

This was a great first overnight backpacking experience for my girlfriend and me. It was long and strenuous enough to test us without being enough to break us.
It was a beautiful walk in the woods. We arrived much later than we intended. Being our first trip, we didn't realize how much preparation time we needed.
The sun had dipped below the horizon by the time we made it to the campsite. Immediately upon arrival, we were invited to the community fire by the NWA Hiking Club. Stories and drinks were shared, and good times were had by all.
The next morning began with breakfast and a light rain. I felt incredible (a symptom of sleeping outdoors), and just wanted to walk. Not finish, but walk. I had to let my legs go. The light rain had awakened and beautified the forest, and my girlfriend and I decided to "hike our own hike". I walked ahead, enjoying walking my own pace and being alone in the woods. The lack of vistas, and the anticlimactic overlook take nothing away from this trail. Walk this trail to be in the forest. To smell the earth and feel its life.

Beautiful walk in the woods.

Peaceful hike, well worn path and clear. I did the short course. Not much as far as views on the short path. Worth a short trip.

This is a nice, well maintained trail that is easy to follow. It is a relatively easy trail if you are in modest shape but did see one lady struggling a little coming up out of the valley as there is some elevation gain. You start at the top so what goes down must come up. Some interesting rock formations and the cave was nice. The cave is a short distance off the standard trail but if you pay attention you will see a path leading up to a rock formation and it is there so do t miss it.

Benches along the way. Well maintained trail.

you can find peace on this trail if you're looking for it. the trail is adventurous and pretty. My dog and I loved it.

Nice hike .. well marked trails !

A great trail for a short little hike. We did this one in the morning before we left town and loved the scenery. Offers some neat side paths that lead up to some small caves or down to the lake.

We love this trail! We take our kids out here all the time & they do great. They especially love going in the little cave, hanging out by the lake. Definitely recommend!

Great trail! Very shady and beautiful. Walking sticks would be helpful for spider webs.

Definitely almost 10 miles. I enjoyed the trail. However the rocks were very hard on the feet after a while and I have good hiking shoes Saw a nice view of the lake as well as many other interesting beauties of nature. Was definitely peaceful.

Going in as one of my favorites! The cliff rocks. The foliage. The lizards. The cave! The lake! It is definitely a moderate hike. Steep in places. Close to the edge in others. Loose rock, so good shoes needed. It is very worth the time tho.

I loved this trail! The trees, the hike, the lake. Very peaceful. My dog loved it as well.

Good trail for mountain biking for a beginner. The trail is well-marked. Nice view of Beaver Lake with nice benches to sit.

I'm from Rogers and have spent a lot time at Lake Atalanta during my child hood. My mema lived in a house up the hill from the lake and we would walk around the lake regularly. I'm a runner and love running trails. Two years ago when I figured out that they spent a lot of time and money to fix up the park and make trails around the lake I was very excited a spent two days running around the lake. I've made it a point to go there ever time I go home. If you take the hardest route of trails it's pretty technical lots of quick elevation changes and twist and turns. Beautiful views and always a great run. Much better than the humdrum of road running. The only thing I'm not to keen on is the board walk. I understand why they did it but in my opinion they could have left it out and just fixed up the road that went around it. It is fun to run on but it is the one thing I would change about it.

Great trail — good marking and beautiful views. Be sure to wear a shoe with a good rock plate as the surface is made up of many 1/2 to 1 inch rocks.

I only saw bikers but clear evidence of horse usage.

Oh, and you can make this longer — I added on a little extra leg to get to 10.5 miles — but I don’t see how you can make this a 7.5 mile trail. 8-9 as a default.
