Loved Collins creek! A little crowded on weekend but worth fighting crowds!

Had lots of fun hiking the trail with 2 energetic little boys. Very beautiful, especially the creek. Would love to do it again later in the Spring!

This is a nice trail I run nearly weekly, being a local resident of Heber Springs. As mentioned, it's a pretty quick trail to hit, has a few nice streams with a view of the river below in some areas. All around a beautiful trail for a quick hike or technical run. You can start the trail at the visitors center, or at the top of the trail where the overlook of the dam is.

If you're into running trails like myself, you can start at the overlook, and head down the trail and cross the street in front of the visitors center where the road is blocked off. This will bring you into the park area where you can run around a part of the lake and it joins into Josh Park trail. Depending on how you route it out, this can turn it in to a 6-8+ mile out and back. Conversely you can start out at Josh Park, which is what I usually do.

Anyhow, it's a nice little trail, especially if you're in the area.

There has been some more parking spots newly added along the road that parallels the trail. Road is just up hill a bit and if you just want to walk its a good walk to the overlook. At least one pick nick table. You can park along this road and get onto the trail at several spots along the way. During the week almost no traffic. On weekend too much. You can also get to trail from the trail at Dam Site Park which is across the hwy.

Well maintained trail next to the visitors center. Start at the visitors center and follow the trail to the stairs and overlook at the end. Retrace your steps to return the parking lot. I am not sure why the description refers to it as a loop...it is not. It is 1.6 miles out and back (round trip).
