My husband and I were spending a few days in Eureka Springs for our 7 year anniversary and we had a bit of time to kill before checking into our B&B so we walked this short trail. Going over the bridge was really neat. Make sure you roll your windows down for the full effect! The sounds of the old bridge will make you cringe. the trail was short, but there were incredible views of Beaver Lake and we even caught a quick Geocache (GC9F63) while we were there. We were there in eary March, so I'm sure it's an even prettier location in the Spring!
An amazing 7 years with this guy as my favorite adventure sidekick!
