Lake Leatherwood

Route Description


TRAIL #7: Lake Leatherwood City Park has over 25 miles of multi-use trails and is the home of the Eureka Springs Fat Tire Festival for good reason. Cross country and downhill riding are the stars here with rocky ledges, steep slopes, extended grades, creek crossings and varied terrain making it challenging to all riders. Trailheads in the campground and day-use area take mountain bikers around the lake or up the surrounding hills. The Twin Knobs Trail and the Beacham Trail are by far the most technical; Miners Rock and Overlook Trail have challenging climbs and long, fast downhills. The park has swimming, bathrooms and bathhouses, and cabins are available for rent or stay in Eureka Springs, a Victorian-era mountain town with excellent restaurants, hotels and B&Bs.
