Pretty easy route. Took 3 year old son with no issues. Beautiful waterfall a third of the way in. Only downside, both bridges are out so can't complete in one loop.
This area of Arkansas is replete with recreational opportunity. The drive is enjoyable anytime of the year, even if you are just passing through. It better to spend a week in the area. Much opportunity
