The trails at Lake Leatherwood are great for all hiking skills. We did the Fuller Trail, which ran along the side of the lake for a great view - very easy to navigate. We also did the Miner's Rock trail, which was harder (designed for mountain bikers) but was a wonderful excursion through the wooded hills!

My husband and I are from Bentonville, and we decided this past Saturday to look for some trails in Eureka Springs. I feel like we came to the right place. We aren't big hikers, but we would like to be someday. We went on a trail that took us to the dam, and it was awesome. It was an easy... More

We hiked along the shore of the lake with the goal of reaching the dam, crossing it, and finding the quarry that supplied the stone for the dam. Unfortunately, due to the heavy rain the prior weeks, the trail was cut off by flood waters. That did not stop us from enjoying both the hike and the beauty of the... More

Great facilities for soccer, trails for hikes and good access for family runs. Like the trees, the athletic fields, but needs better car and truck parking.

The lake is nice and we had a good time investigating several of the hiking trails. The facilities at the lake were convenient.

When my Mom lived in Eureka Springs ten years ago, I rode my mountain bike around Lake Leatherwood one day; great exercise!

Caught a few fish, nice fishing as it is a no wake lake. There's a little swim beach and a place to jump off into the lake, looks fun for families with kids.

Check it out if you go to Eureka Springs area. Small lake that rents paddle boats, canoes .... Looks like people swim in the warmer months. They rent camping spots, as well as cabins, seems very clean and well kept.
