Was a really great hike and had some pretty view spots and interesting bridges. It was a little populated with other hikers but everyone was very friendly.

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. :(

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.

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
