Lake Leatherwood Trail

The Lake Leatherwood Trail is located near Eureka Springs. The trail features include a dam made of cut limestone rocks and an old quarry from which that limestone was gathered. Lake Leatherwood also serves as a park of sorts so you will find some pavilions and cabins when you first enter in. The trail itself tapers off from all of this though and you can count on a more rustic feel as you move along. To prove this, the trailhead has a sign that warns of wild hogs that are in the woods. I did not see any when I hiked this one but I did see where they had been bedding down behind the dam. Don’t be deceived by the thought of wild hogs. They should not be messed with. (more…)
