Things to do in Heber Springs

We thought we would share a bit of info about what there is to do in Heber Springs. Once you get to experience the area, you'll see why we like to call this place "home."

Check out www.heber-springs.com for a great overview of what's available in town.


History & Educational Stuff

  • Corps of Engineers Visitors Center (at the western end of the dam) - information center & exhibit hall, with a theatre and 20 min presentation on area history.
  • Dam Viewing Platform (at the eastern end of the dam) - where JFK made his last major appearance before his ill-fated trip to Dallas a few weeks later. Nice view of the dam.
  • Greers Ferry National Fish Hatchery - Rainbow and Brook trout, visitor center, self-guided hatchery tours, trout fishing in the Little Red River adjacent to hatchery grounds. Hours are 7 am - 3 pm daily.

Outdoorsy

  • Hikers can enjoy two award-winning national nature trails located near the (Corps) welcome center. Mossy Bluff extends along a tree-covered bluff overlooking the Little Red River, immediately below the dam. It ends almost one mile away at a rustic shelter, which offers a panoramic view of the river and dam. Nearby is Buckeye Trail, a short barrier-free, paved pathway designed for the physically challenged. Guide maps for both trails are available at the center.
  • You can also climb the land-locked SugarLoaf which is out by the four way stop, behind the college. Look for the sign for the trailhead off Hwy 110
  • Bridal Veil Falls - pretty waterfall and creek area. North of town on Hwy 25 before you go up the big curvy hill, turn onto Bridal Veil Falls Rd.
  • Collin's Creek - fed by a pipe from the lake, this is a lovely little creek with bunches of rocks creating tiny waterfalls as it descends. There is a trail entrance and parking along the entrance to JFK campground.
  • Rent a boat at the marina and take a cruise out on Greers Ferry Lake!
  • Spring Park – located in the heart of town on East Main St. Named after its natural springs which are covered by pavilions and accessible throughout the park.
