Paved and natural-surface trails are located around Lake Bella Vista. A paved loops takes pedestrians and cyclists around the scenic lake and over an iron bridge. About 2 miles of natural-surface trail serves as a connector from Slaughter Pen to Blowing Springs.
The mountain bike paths take off of the Lake Bella Vista paved loop and climb high up the hillside for scenic riding. Soaring bridges, waterfalls, and plenty of tricky rocks make for a fun and technical ride. Parking is available off Highway 71 at Lake Bella Vista Park.
