Very pretty, quite and peaceful trail.
Fun, easy trail.
Nice trail with water views.
Lots of fun!
Great for us and 2 dogs. Not too crowded on a late September Sunday. We loved the waterfall and vistas!
this is a beautiful trail with a fun waterfall. The kids and dog enjoyed it! It would have been even more enjoyable if other people would pick up their trash. one family left a wet diaper by the waterfall. :(
beautiful and fun for the whole family! highly recommended for all ages!
This trail and the waterfall were beautiful! However, it is a moderate-level trail. In fact, all of the trails in this area are moderate-level according to the visitor center. Taking a 4 year old and two dogs was quite difficult...but I'll definitely return because I absolutely loved it, just not with so many responsibilities
Beautiful after a solid two weeks of rain. This may be our favorite trail in Central Arkansas.
Good place to have a family hike, trail running, or start building your endurance back up. My wife and I have been on alot of trails in Arkansas, but we keep coming back to this one.
Great easy trail but as of today the falls were dried up.
Beautiful, lots of shade, vistas, and critters.
This is a beautiful short hike. Get out as early as possible to avoid crowds. Best times to hike would be April after new leaves and anytime in fall especially last week October, first week November fall foliage. Short and sweet but beautiful rocky trail, waterfall, streams make it one not to miss when visiting this beautiful park.
Nice trail. Expected more difficult terrain, but this trail was still great. #shortScenic
Nice elevation changes, beautiful scenery and the waterfall to wade in at the end. Great hike!
Very simple, beautiful trail with lots of great views and tons of wildlife and natural beauty for any age group to enjoy. The waterfall is definitely worth the hike and if you have a camera there are tons of things to artistically capture through your lens. I took my four children with no issues and there were benches throughout for breaks if needed. The kids spotted 5 deer, 3 frogs, 1 giant beetle, 2 squirrels, and much much more!! I cant wait to post more photos from my Nikon!
Really beautiful trail, moderately hard though...there really are some uneven surfaces and some ups and downs but it's a great spot! The only negative here...is IT IS BUSY!!! There are often lots of people hiking this trail, it's almost a traffic jam at times!!!
