Hazel Evans Walking Trail at Carol Ann Cross Park, Fort Smith

Sunday morning, I visited the Hazel Evans Walking Trail at Carol Ann Cross Park in Fort Smith. The walking trail is a .6-mile paved loop that circles the park’s small lake.

Part of the walking trail crosses the dam at the north side of the lake.

As with most parks, fall is one of the prettiest times to visit Creekmore. Here are a few photos I took at the park today.

Lake Fayetteville Paved Trail

Fayetteville, Arkansas, is blessed with a number of nice urban trails. A couple of weeks ago, I walked the Lake Fayetteville Paved Trail that loops around Lake Fayetteville. It’s a pretty nice urban trail.

The trail starts at Veterans Memorial Park, near the southwest end of the lake, and then heads north to run clockwise around the lake. Currently, the paved Lake Fayetteville Trail doesn’t go all the way around the lake. It is about 4.3 miles.
