Devil’s Eyebrow & Trimble Mountain: The trailhead is 6 miles from the resort. The hike is 10-12 miles of vigorous “up and down,” if you decide to go to the end and back (you do not have to). This area boasts some of the rarest, and most diverse collection of, plant species in Arkansas!
Lake Leatherwood Park is an enchanting spring fed lake valley that boasts some of the finest hiking in the area, just 10 miles from your cabin. Some trails are also used for biking. Most miles will just be you, the birds (and the bees), and the flowers, and the trees!

When there is water coming down from the hills, take a dip or quiet your soul at Leatherwood Falls.
Whichever excursions you choose, happy trails!
