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

This was our favorite spot while visiting Eureka Springs. We enjoyed kayaking daily on this hidden gem. The water is very peaceful and the wildlife abundant. There is also a great trail system around the entire lake.

We hiked Beachum Trail which was 4 mile hike around the lake. Took us about 1 1/2 hrs at a nice pace. You go to one end of the lake and cross the dam, beautiful view.

We did a couple of smaller hikes at Lake Leatherwood before departing Eureka Springs. We're glad we had a chance to stretch our legs and enjoy the beauty of the area. Get a map of all the trails and enjoy. We were also impressed with the tent camping--gorgeous, private areas (lots of flat grassy areas to set up).

We visited here in July and just happened on this beautiful place. Clear clean water and lots of trails. We were going to hike however being July and with a sign at the trail head that warned of poisonous snakes, and bugs we thought better of it and decided to come back in the fall.
