We went to Lake Leatherwood to hike on two different days. The first day we had trouble finding the trails we had read about and wanted to try out. We ended up hiking to The Point on Fuller Trail. The Point was pretty and peaceful, but the hike itself wasn't very interesting, so we turned around at The Point and... More

Wonderful hiking grounds around the lake and beautiful little no wake lake. Perfect for canoeing and kayaking. There is also bike trails around the lake. Great family spot!

Heeding the recommendation of a native, we visited the park while on a drive through the area. Even though it was pretty cold while we were there, the natural beauty of the park is easy to appreciate. Definitely worth checking out, even if you're not there to hike or fish.

We stopped for many photos so it took us a couple hours, but if you hike at a brisk pace w/o stops, you could do it in probably a good hour. Moderate hike. Pretty lake.

Love this quiet gem nestled in a valley outside Eureka Springs. The hiking trails are well marked and maintained nicely. The lake was calling my name with kayaks, but it was a bit windy the day I visited. We'll be back to slay some fish, hopefully! Cheers!

My wife and I ran around the lake. We had to walk 25% of the trail and was able to run the balance. November is a great time of the year to visit this area.

My husband and I went last Saturday and we hiked about 9 miles. Range of difficult to easy trails. We really enjoyed our experience and had fun relaxing and getting away from everyday stress. Our favorite trail was the miners rock trail. Lots of rock formations and even a few sink holes.

Great 1/2 day adventures walking and hiking around the lake. The dam was a ++++ to walk across, foot traffic only, no rush. Water like fall from the flowing water++++ Super day fun for whole family.

My fiance and I were on our way out of Eureka Springs back to Kansas City when we stumbled upon the Lake Leatherwood exit. The original hike we planned on taking was 2 hours outside of Eureka and we just didn't have time for it this trip. We saw the trail sign and decided to take the exit. We drove... More
