Trail Location

The trail is located at the end of Lake Wilson Road. From Fayetteville take Morningside Drive south of 15th Street for approximately two miles. Morningside Drive becomes City Lake Road, turn left on Wilson Hollow Road. Follow the gravel road over the White River, then turn left on Lake Wilson Road.


Lake Wilson was the City's first drinking water supply. Now, this 320-acre park features two looping trails with rock outcrops and excellent natural beauty. The inside loop trail around the lake is 1.33 miles around and the outer loop trail is 1.76 miles long. The spillway was repaired in 2010, but caution should be used while crossing the spillway section of the trail.

The trail was built by members of the Ozark Society and dedicated to Joe and Maxine Clark in 1995.
