“A beautiful park in the northern Arkansas with tough climbs, fast-flow and a few tech sections.”— Tom Robson
Eureka Springs is only a few miles away so you can drive into town to grab a bite and a beer as well. It's a cute little town.
Bench Loop Trail is located on the same mountain as Twin Knobs Trail. It is comprised of two benches at different elevations that are connected by short grades. The trail passes several rock outcroppings and bluffs.
Alternate between Twin Knobs Trail and Bench Loop Trail, ascending the mountain until you reach Lost Ridge Trail. One of the newest trails in the park, Lost Ridge Trail traverses a bench littered with interesting bluffs including a Pivot Rock formation. If approached from Hyde Hollow the trail climbs 10 switchbacks and 300 feet in elevation.
From Lost Ridge Trail, turn left onto Hyde Hollow Trail. This route crosses a tributary creek six times. Lush groundcover and seasonal springs are the highlights of this trail. Slick creek rocks make the trail challenging anytime water is present, and during high water, the route can be impassable.
At the bottom of Hyde Hollow Trail turn right onto Beacham Trail. Beacham Trail circles the lake, passing Leatherwood Dam, the dam quarry and other interesting destinations. Although this trail traverses few extended hills, the varied terrain makes it especially challenging for bicyclists.
Bypass Fuller Trail and Fuller Point Spur to a right turn onto Overlook Trail. The trail climbs steeply to the dam overlook and moss-covered bluffs line the ridge as you go. From the trail's terminus, descend Mulladay Hollow Trail to Mulladay Hollow Bridge. Turn right onto the road for a short amount of time and then make a quick right onto Miner's Rock Trail.
Miner's Rock Trail leads riders up a long, steep hill on several miles of mildly graded trail that meanders along benches beneath beautiful rocky bluffs. This trail is a favorite of local mountain bikers and leads to Miner's Rock, a unique geological formation. Before the trail winds right back up the hill, drop in on Miner's Rock Connector, almost to the road. From the bottom of Miner's Rock Connector, wind back up Miner's Rock Trail and finish its loop.
From here on out just retrace your steps on Miner's Rock Trail until Mulladay Hollow Bridge. Instead of turning left, which is the way you came from, turn right to descend on Mulladay Hollow Trail and back to the trailhead.
