Beacham Trail at Lake Leatherwood (Eureka Springs, Carroll County) is a cool 3.2-mile trail that is not very difficult. It makes a loop around the lake and has some nice views, especially at the north end where the trail goes across the dam.

The trail profile is in this post.

These are some additional photos from my August 29, 2015 hike.

Lake Leatherwood Dam. The Beacham Trail crosses the dam.

I love Lake Leatherwood (Eureka Springs, Carroll County). It’s a 1,600-acre municipal park that’s mostly wilderness. It has lots of great hiking and biking trails. It’s owned and run by the City of Eureka Springs.

The Beacham Trail makes a 3.2-mile loop around the lake. It has some mild climbing, but it’s not a difficult hike.

The trail has some very nice views of the lake, particularly on the north side where the trail crosses the top of the dam.
