Eureka Springs’ Best Hiking Trails for 2019
With so many hiking trails to choose from, it really can be hard to choose a favorite. But, over the years, there have definitely been some tried and true favorites. These trails offer truly some of the best scenery the Ozark Mountains and the Eureka Spings area has to offer. Pick just one, or try all of them; the choice is yours. Here are our favorite hiking trails for you to try in 2019:
- The Lost Valley Trail can be found in the Buffalo National River area. The trail is 2.3 miles roundtrip, and features a 53-foot tall waterfall, a natural bridge, and a cave with a 35-foot waterfall inside. The trail is easy to access and an easy hike with benches along the way to rest and soak it all in.
- Also in the Buffalo National River area is the Hemmed-in Hollow Trail. Hikers choose this trail because of the Hemmed-in Hollow falls, which cascade a stunning 210-feet. This waterfall is considered the highest waterfall between the Rockies and the Appalachians. The trail can take as long as 4 to 5 hours to complete due to the rough terrain, so hikers should plan to be on the trail for the entire day.
- The Ozark National Forest is home to the Glory Hole Waterfall Trail. The hike is mainly downhill to the waterfall and can be tough to hike, as the rocks get slippery. The waterfall is quite unique, as the water flows through a natural-made hole in the rocks.
- While you’re in the Ozark National Forest, check out the Whitaker Point Trail. This is a definite must-see trail when visiting Eureka Springs, due to the iconic crag at the end that overlooks Whitaker Creek. The crag is also known as the Hawksbill Crag Trail. The trail is 3-miles round trip and there are beautiful waterfalls and wildflowers to be seen along the way.
- At Devil’s Den State Park, the Yellow Rock Trail is a great place to start. At the end of the 300-foot hike, hikers will discover stunning views of the Lee Creek Valley. This hike is great for a quick outing in the morning or afternoon, as it is only 3-miles in length. The trail does get busy on the weekends but still well worth scenic views at the end.
After a day on the trails, you’re bound to be tired. That’s where the Arsenic and Old Lace comes in. Arsenic and Old Lace is conveniently located just 2 blocks from the Historic District of Eureka Springs, and we offer 5 beautiful and spacious guest rooms, each with their own private bathroom. Each morning, you’ll fuel up with a gourmet breakfast, ready to start all over again. Come join us this spring or summer for some of Arkansas’ best hiking.
