trail locations for Heber Springs, Arkansas

Yo son col stuf it be rel nic climbing dis mountain

We rented a boat & explored the lake and then tied up on the boat dock at Sugarloaf trailhead. Other people there used the water taxi and others kayaked there. It's a fun trail with beautiful views from the top. There were 2 Blackhawk helicopters flying across the lake-much lower than we were at the top. Wear good shoes-it's steep and lots of loose pebbles

Enjoyed the day along this trail

Trail was so confusing and misleading, there was at least five separate, legitimate trails and only one had any kind of marking, and that wasn't even the trail to get to the waterfall.
On top of that, the waterfall was barely a trickle, and after talkin to some locals I found that it doesn't get much better than when we went. A very forgettable experience

Not too much to see. The climb up the hill is fun, I wish there was more to it than just a short hike and climb. Nothing worthwhile on the top

This was a simple route with multiple small trails to get down to the falls. Very cool pictures of the falls! Watch out for spider webs!:)

The falls was beautiful, but the trail was difficult to follow. There is a very short trail to an overlook. From there, there are two unmarked trails left and right. We took the left, which led to the bottom of the falls. Some have clearly taken a shortcut that is much more steep. We did not take the path to the right, but I assumed it went to the other falls that I read about online. None of it was marked and my wife was not confident with my desire to charge off into the wilderness on an unmarked path with my children!

Do the loop to the left of the viewing deck down to the falls then up behind the falls and up to the smaller falls above.

This trail is deceiving. Initially it starts out appearing mundane but about a quarter mile in it becomes spectacular. Well worth it to go to the up to the viewing deck for the dam at the end.

Trail down to the waterfall was difficult, no footing but a few tree roots but it was worth it to see the amazing waterfalls.

Fun little trail down, definitely wish it was a bit longer. Nice small waterfall that you can get behind and enjoy. Would return!

It's nice. Just a short (steep) hike to the bottom of the falls. The view is nice when you get down there. But the best part is hiking down the stream. My kids had a lot of fun doing that.

This is a really short hike and is ok if you're doing the Sugarloaf trail anyway.

This was a decent outing but nothing to write home about in my opinion.

Great little hike you can do in a few minutes on the way to another trail. The falls can be viewed from the trail head if your in a hurry but it's worth it to hike down and around to the bottom. Not the easiest trail but I did it carrying a toddler and a beer gut so it's not too bad. Saw a giant woodpecker too, so it might be a good spot for bird watching.

You can drive all the way to the top if you just want a view of the dam. The hike up is decent from the visitor center but most of the view of the river below will be blocked by trees in the summer. The bluffs overlooking the trail are still a nice enough view to make up for it. I didn't even mind the vultures circling me like they knew something I didn't.
