Enjoyed this hike ... interesting feature.

great hike, beautiful water falls and overlook. pretty empty at 8am in parking lot. very full at 10am when we left

Outstanding trail! I did this one earlier this month with Memphis Outdoor Adventures. I would definitely do it again!

The trailhead sign says 4 hours. We got out in 4 minutes under that, even with the side trip to the grotto falls and a lunch break, so I would say the time estimate is spot on.

So beautiful, especially once you get along the ridge there are huge boulders that are just sitting along the edge. Awesome scenery and gorgeous overlooks!

Gorgeous hike! Very rocky, make sure to wear safe shoes. All uphill going out so be prepared to get a good workout!

Take binos to see eagles.

Make sure to add time for exploring.

This turned out to be my favorite hike of our short trip. I'm generally a stickler for staying on the real trail, but we were in Jasper talking to a forest service ranger who told us that many people didn't know you could walk down to the stream early on and hike along it to the Glory Hole. So that's what we did. It was beautiful! There were lots of little cascades and interesting rocks along the way. Once you get to the Glory Hole itself, the stream, the bluffs, the undercut, the glory hole waterfall, and everything is just fantastic! Be sure to see it from above as well. Again, we had the place to ourselves, enjoyed our snacks, and thanked God for such a wonderful place.

Great trail! Definitely worth the hike.

I've been wanting to hike this for a long time and, while it was decent, it's not on my list to do again. The trail itself is nice, but nothing to write home about. When you get to a short, relatively steep descent across the little creek, you can go right which will go along the bluff or left (upstream) for a short period, then it will curve around parallel to the other trail and merge just before the Hawksbill Crag if you want an easier trail for some reason. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty nice: sticking out there all by itself. Take turns taking photos of each other. Standing on the crag itself, you don't even know your sticking out over the edge. It wasn't as big or as high as we thought it would be from the pictures we've seen. Again, it's worth doing, check it off your list, but I liked other trails in the area much better.

Great quick hike with many scenic views

Amazing hike to a very scenic overlook of the Arkansas Ozarks! Great photo opportunities at the end :)

Great short, quick hike... after a big rain, several waterfalls for 3/4 of the entire trail.

Excellent view of the majesty of the Arkansas Ozarks. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the state.

Lots of streams flowing now and weather was perfect. A cool trail!

Awesome trail, make sure to take a right at the fork about 10 mins in. Just follow the trail and you will get there. coming out is all uphill but not to bad. Took us 40 mins to get out.

I really love this trail. Traveling from Hot Springs, it is close enough to make a full day out of it! I've completed this trail once, and I am going back Wednesday to do this trail plus some more! Also, this definitely is closer to 13 miles instead of the 8 stated above. The steepest parts are around the 4-5 mile marks!

Had the entire place to ourselves which is hard to get on a weekend. Beautiful as always!!

Great little spot to explore. Lots of water in the creek which made for a very cool place.

The actual falls were beautiful. The hike was more like a road and it had a convoy of Polaris type vehicles on it. The water was running and We had the falls to ourselves.

Great place to enjoy the beautiful scenery

Fun little trail. Very quiet and peaceful on the way back to the falls.

Well marked, easy trail with some beautiful sights! Had lunch on the rocks by the falls on a gorgeous day. All up hill heading back, and my husband had to carry our little one on his shoulders some.

Heavy traffic and little parking. Best to go in the winter.

Short,relatively easy trail. We did this hike later in the afternoon and we were able to avoid the crowds. On the way out you are going down so coming back it is uphill. Had some good rain this week so the water was flowing good. A very scenic trail with various rock formations.

This is a very popular hike so be prepared to share it. With the weather being nice there was a large crowd out which making finding parking a little tougher. The hike itself was an easy hike and well worth the views, one you definitely want to take.

Excellent trail. The 95 ft waterfall puts an exclamation point on the hike.

Easy and short trail. You can adventure past Glory hole for a bit going along the bluffs, but not very far. Worth going to at least once!

This was my favorite location to date. It’s slightly more dangerous than previous trails but worth it.

Very scenic!
