Need to Know

Parking is available at the trailhead off of Ford Road in Garfield, AR. Eagle Bluff Trail is located off of the Main Trail, about 0.85 miles from the parking lot/trailhead.

Description

The Eagle Bluff Trail is a 1.8 mile out-and-back hike from the Main Trail at the Rob and Melani Walton Preserve. It starts about 0.85 miles from the preserve trailhead. The trail follows along a ridge line to a roundabout with a view of the lake. Viewing is best during leaf-off, however visitors may also enjoy the fall colors in autumn and flowering dogwoods and redbuds in the spring. The trail is along an old access road that has a steady descent to the lake view and a steady uphill hike back to the main trail.

Flora & Fauna

Oak-hickory dominated forest with attractive fall colors and spring-blooming trees such as redbuds and flowering dogwoods.
