Hideout Hollow Falls trail is a short two mile out and back trail through second growth timber leading to a high bluff that eventually winds its way to the top of a 37 ft. tall waterfall. The wet weather creek has a couple small water falls just up stream from the main fall. The best season to visit is from September through April, during the rainy season, even though it is open year round. There is a way down the bluff to the base of the fall; but you need to discover it yourself. It is very dangerous. The bluff views and large rock formations make it worth the trip even when the water is not running. Canoeing the Buffalo River and numerous other hikes are in the area. One could spend two weeks in the region exploring.

Easy hike. Trail contains many round sandstone rocks,don't roll an ankle. Elevation change wasn't abrupt. Beautiful views from the bluffine. 2 waterfalls to see at trails end. A few people on the trail but not enough to be annoying. Parking at trail head was minimal.

Last hike of our weekend.
Didn't see the water fall, but really enjoyed the view from the top of the cliff.
Guess I'll need to go back :)

The trail is pretty easy and the ending is fun as well. I enjoyed getting off the trail and hanging out on the bluffs more than anything. A great are to explore but it's also a long drive to get there.

Beautiful day for a hike. This is a very sketchy drive to the head of this short hike. Paved hwy, to gravel road, to very narrow dirt road in the middle of no where. You will drive by little dwellings you might see in horror movies. Once you arrive you will wonder if you have, a small Hideout Hollow wooden sign greets you, on a very small patch of dirt to park your car. The hike is short and easy if you are in shape, I would say moderate if you are not in good shape. There are a couple steeper spots but nothing that bad. It's a fairly clearly walked path with some trees marked as well. In the middle of Oct there was only a trickle of water nothing resembling a waterfall. But all in all worth it.

This trail is fairly easy out and back trail to see a great waterfall, when the water is flowing. Beautiful scenery and great views of the bluffs

This trail is short, but very beautiful. Not too difficult, leads to a very nice waterfall when the water is flowing, and the views from the bluff are great!

Love this trail - it's gorgeous any time of year. If the waterfall is flowing, that's beautiful, and if not the bluffs are worth the easy hike. Pets are not allowed on this hike though, and be REALLY careful of kids, and keep them close, the bluffs drop off pretty suddenly, you don't really see them coming.
