When we went the water was SUPER high, which meant the waterfalls were amazing but the explorable cave was inaccessible. Be prepared for a few creek crossings, and if there has been some rain, be ready for some wading. Trail is easy to lose but there’s plenty to explore, and when we were there the survey tape still marked the creek crossings further down. We wound up following the creek down past the last cave and it was very beautiful. As others have said, trust your GPS. There are some slippery parts and scrambley parts, but mostly it’s a matter of navigating the creek and whether the water is high or not. If you go dressed/ready for water and thorny underbrush you’re gonna have a blast. Bonus: we went off trail around the cow grate and found a bunch of really old abandoned cars and the ruins of an old homestead. If you have extra time it’s a super fun offshoot trail to explore.

This is a great day hike and I could spend all day here! It was strange to hike through the hayfields, but it was a nice change. Follow the AllTrails GPS. It is pretty dead on. Older kids 8+ would not have any problem keeping up on this hike and the water would be fun to play in when the weather warms up.

Awesome adventure. Lots of blue holes to swim in . Great cave adventure and waterfalls. One of our families favorite places. Will need lots of bug spray in summer . Chiggers are bad. Late fall, winter , early spring no issues. No signage, explorer after doing homework. It took us 2 different trips to find the 2nd cave and waterfall. Trails are marked sometimes with surveyors tape.

I’ve gone to this trail for the past 3 years now because there is always something new to explore every time you go. This is my favorite trail to hike and it amazes everyone I bring to hike with. Being that this trail is very back country and I wouldn’t say very known so I would take precautions on this... I went spring of last year and after a long week of raining it was overgrown and getting across the creek at the beginning was near impossible. Despite being washed over it was still fun as the waterfalls and caves were on point. My group ran into wildlife in and out. Ran into many accounts of snakes because of the overgrown path so watch your step. The rocks are always slippery as it is just typically a wet area even if it hasn’t rained within the week or so.

Not for the faint hearted but very rewarding. Wish the water had been a little higher when we were there, but will be back. Road in is definitely only suitable for off road capable vehicles. Might be very tough in wet conditions.

Any day on the trail is a good day, but this trail has opportunity to make some great days. A few things I would have liked to have known before: 1) From the turn off of Scenic Highway 7 down McElroy Gap Road / County Road 59 to the trail head is 2.8 miles of washboard gravel road that cuts its way through Ozark mountains with a copious amount of switch backs and steep inclines and declines. The road bed itself isn’t bad all things considered except for a few washed out places but next time we come we’ll bring the 4x4 truck. I would not recommend the minivan or any other low profile car. 2) Hayfields - You’re going to walk through 4. We made our trek in mid-July and the fields had just been cut but not raked or bailed. If we had been a week earlier we probably would have turned around instead of walking through alfalfa up to our necks. A week later and the hay would be bailed and gone and I wouldn’t have thought anything of it. Just be prepared and know the bailing season you’re in. 3) Stick to the trail and trust your AllTrails GPS. Several have said this so I won’t say much more, I reiterate because it’s important. 1.8 miles and you’ll be having lunch on the banks of the Left Fork Big Creek. 4) Just on the other side of the creek the trail picks up again. Follow it 100 yards and stay straight at the four way trail intersection. From there another 5 minutes and you’ll be at the base of an impressive spring fed waterfall. Overall Impression: Getting to the trail head is all the challenge in this out and back day hike. It was an easy hike for our family of four to venture out into the backwoods during summer break. We’ll be back, but next time in the truck.

Trust the GPS.. Be prepared to get wet and muddy.. We did not see a single person while hiking.. It has slick spots.. No cell reception.. Water is COLD.. My favorite hike to date.. You totally should make the trip.. I could've spent days there.. It's magicial..

To find the actual cave falls on this map when it comes to a point the big cave and also the cave falls are on the hillside to the right of the trail. does require a little bushwhack and off trail to get to cave falls. cave falls is around a bend on that mountain side just past the cave. the water seeps down into the ground so looking for a stream leaving the falls is pointless.

need the downloadable map to find the actual big creek cave falls, found other cool falls though. I lost my glasses in a pool of water if anyone sees them let me know.
