Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This trail loops through the forest below Bull Shoals Dam. Bull Shoals takes its name from the French word “boill,” meaning a large spring. Edmund Jennings was the first English-speaking visitor to the region, and he called it the “country of the six boills” but mispronounced the French word. It has been called Bull Shoals ever since.

Walk south from the parking area along a paved road for almost 0.1 mile. Cross to the east side of the road and take off on a dirt path between cedar trees.An information board marks the beginning of the trail’s loop section.We took the left fork.
This trail had the roughest surface of any that we hiked. Lichen-covered lime-stone rocks are firmly embedded in the ground.They are of various shapes and sizes—none smooth."
