Simply walking around Eureka Springs is great exercise and the beautiful buildings, hilly topography, and springs make it quite scenic, but if you want to get out in the woods a bit, nearby Lake Leatherwood is a good bet. During warmer parts of the year, you can rent a variety of boats to explore the lake. In early March, your options are limited to where your own feet can take you. Luckily, there are lots of trails around the lake and lots of interesting things to see. The trails range from small, rough, single-track to smooth wide gravel roads. We hiked parts of the Fuller, Fishing and Beacham trails and our route is shown on the map below.
While Google Maps shows some of the trails, many more can be seen at www.lakeleatherwoodcitypark.com
