The entire trail is an ATV trail. Will return during leaf-off when the views will be better. Walked down the trail to the campsite where someone had left their tent unpegged and also left a bunch of garbage in the fire pit. The views, once you reach the roost, are beautiful, but not worth the atv hike in the summer. Lots of wildlife and am eager to return in the winter.

Any area along Richland creek offers great trails and beautiful scenery from the wooded area's to the multiple waterfalls. Falling water, Twin falls, and six fingers falls to name a few. This is a must see area if you've not been dont miss out anymore

it was a great trail did take a little bit to find the trail went off of it multiple time but was also first time out there had a blast water was kind of low went July 15 2018 going back this weekend right after a rain august 11th 2018 will report when I return.

. Strenuous uphill hike. Nice view at the top.

I love this place. Super short hike through the woods to beautiful rock formations and stunning views. Great place to explore and sit and enjoy the vistas.

We found it easy. We went this last April.
Saw signs pointing us in the right direction. Good flow and only saw 2 people leaving as we were on our way down. The hike there is all downhill. So the hike back is intense but not ridiculously steep.. til the Jeep road. But it’s not too long! Worth it.

beautiful overlook of the Kings River. easy to set up camp near the rim

Absolutely beautiful!!

On 7/15/18, I hiked both this and the Yellow Rock trails, which I suggest doing. The FF trail was nice and peaceful, and provided me with various opportunities to explore the creek bed. The YR trail was more vertical, and provided numerous spectacular vistas. To top it off, there is a knee-deep “swimming hole” near the YR trailhead.

Man, what a snoozer. The drive alone was considered the hike.

The “falls” were barely dripping water when my friend and I got there; there were spiderwebs that had to be knocked down every step; and the “waterfalls” were dinkier than any other.

Save yourself the gas and the maintenance your car may need after the drive, it’s definitely not worth it.

Love this trail, but it really could use better signage at crossroads areas towards the end.

Today there were so many spiderwebs over the path and it was overgrown in areas, so not recommended in sandals.

Saw lots of wildlife, including a woodchuck, several deer, and some tiny frogs.

Water is really low right now so creek crossing isn't an issue.

Really fun trail! Not too hard but enough incline coming back to work up a sweat. Great spot to camp right at the rocks if you feel like hammocking, if you feel more adventurous there are a few spots closer too or even on the rocks you may be able to camp with a tent or just a sleeping bag under a beautiful sky but fair warning, there are some pretty big crevasses in between the rocks and if you hear buzzing that’s just the Volkswagen Beetle sized Yellow Jackets hunting for insects in the trees on and around the rocks. It’s also the bumble bees that seem attracted to the lichen that covers the rocks, oh and big hornets also flying around and honey bees. It’s like a stinging insect paradise up there for some reason but that doesn’t take away from the stunning views and the peacefulness the intermittent buzzing provides. The trail is across the road from the white house with the tomb stone in the yard, we parked on the embankment across from the house overnight with no issues. Only saw a few UTVs who did a quick once over of the roost and then headed off for somewhere else. The trail is really rocky so if you have bad ankles watch your step and you may want to wrap them up. Also being as this is an ATV trail it had some pretty large puddles just FYI.
All in all I’d recommend this as a great day hike and a solid hike to camp trail but I’d wait until fall when the flying death beasts thin out a bit

Neat rock formations and fun to check out the base of the bluffs. Better views on other bluff hikes. A lot of the hike is in the woods.

fairly strenuous hike. when starting at boat dock, go left at first trail junction to get to mule trail, the other end of mule trail (if you go to the right) is closed, not sure why no one else has mentioned this, awesome views from the top

It was a Very Beautiful short walk in.. With wild raspberries growing beside the trail.... best part was the water fall .. worst part was the road in and out is Very Steep at the end ... so a 4×4 is a must!

So freaking amazing!!

The trail head looks like a closed logging road not a trail head, i didnt know i was on an actual trail until i could hear the waterfall, the trail itself is dismal, unmaintained, and over grown in many sections. As a result i was picking ticks off the entire way. The waterfall itself was decent but not worth the hike

So. Many. Chiggers. And the safety cable across the top of the falls is down. It’s beautiful up there, but a fall would be lethal. The bottom of the falls is nice as well, but several unruly scouts were tossed rocks of the top creating an unsafe environment. I spoke with them, gently at the top of my lungs and from the look on their faces when we met on the trail shortly afterwards, I believe they got the message. Camp Orr is, I believe making repairs to the trail soon. Not sure why it’s called Triple Falls Trail here in the app, there were only 2 on the day I was there, one a mere trickle. Sign at the trailhead calls it Twin Falls.

Great trail, and easy to find. Trail is well maintained, and the views are fantastic!!!

I’m still in shock that I’ve been coming to Gunner Pool my entire life and never knew this amazing spot existed! Yes, the road down to Gunner off 14 is rough, but I remember back to when it was one lane the whole way and would almost knock the tires off a pick up truck! I made the trek today in a 2 wheel drive GMC Acadia and was fine-just take your time. The initial turnoff wasn’t hard to find but the actual trailhead was a little confusing for me because the marker didn’t call it a “horse trail” it said “walk in for turkey hunters”. Anyway, I gave it a shot after noticing the letter A hammered into a tree. The abandoned road was grassy, but nothing major. I used plenty of DEET because I’m living with Lyme disease that I most certainly picked up here in AR-just beware. The creek bed was dry so the first waterfall on the right before the road curves back to the left (Mud Springs) was not flowing-in high water you can hear it and trek off to see an additional falls! After crossing the dry creek bed it got pretty wooly, but still nothing unmanageable. When I finally got to the falls I lost my breath for a moment at the sheer untouched beauty. I literally hit my knees and said a prayer of thanks for such a masterpiece! I can’t to share this 60 foot hidden gem with my daughters!

There are no clear markers at the starting of the trail. Went the wrong way for a bit before back tracking. But once in the trail, it is beautiful. We stopped multiple times to get in the water since the weather was so hot.

This was my first solo hiking/camping trip. The trail is marked fairly well and I didn't have much trouble staying on track. I did follow the creek as intended. However, the water was high enough that I needed to swim across Richland Creek to get to Twin Falls. You will be getting wet! At several points during the trail you will need to cross a body of water on foot. Most of which were about calf/knee height for me. The last was waist/chest height and at times you cannot touch the bottom completely so you need to be very careful. The current can be strong in some areas. When you come to a bend in the creek with a flat stoney shore, you'll need to cross where it comes to a fork. This is the only part that is not marked. There is no indication that you'll need to cross at that point. Luckily, I ran into a couple at the very spot and they asked me if I was looking for Twin Falls. They mentioned they had been there before and pointed me in the right direction. I would not have been able to find it if it weren't for their guidance. Continue on for about half a mile (maybe less) and you will know you've reached Twin Falls when you see it. Although it is marked a "hard" trail, I think it is doable for anybody who is generally active. There's various terrain and beautiful scenery everywhere you turn. I will be back to continue exploring and to possibly bring friends!

Pretty good ways on a gravel road to a lot where you can park and walk to the falls. Falls just a short walk from the parking area. We got lucky and were there after some rains and the falls were nice. Recommend if you have extra time and if they have had any recent rain.

You’ll have to swim the river to get to the trail head. Watch for the sign across the bank. Not a bad hike. Marked well but lots of ticks.

It was great just a long drive to get to the trailhead.

Let me just start off by saying, the drive in is meant for people who have SUVs or trucks. We took my fiancé’s Camry and we almost got stuck. The drive down wasn’t too bad, but the drive back up the steep hill everyone mentions was rough. We got stuck about halfway up, started spinning out, so we had to back all the way back down. Luckily a guy with a tractor was coming through and dragged the road ahead of us so we could get some traction to get back up.

As far as the trail, we went early March of 2017, and it was kind of hard to find the trail head. There were some people making their way out when we got there, so we got lucky again. Once you make you way in, it opens up some. You come across a few four wheeler trails along the way. Crossing the creek was rough for us, since we were trying to keep our shoes dry and we didn’t have another pair, or any waterproof shoes. We walked barefoot across the creeks which hurt like a SOB on those rocks. Make sure you bring another pair of shoes to cross.

We made it about halfway through the trail, having crossed the creek about three times at this point. After talking to a few people who were on their way out, we decided to turn around. They all said the falls were dried up, and you have to cross the creek another 3-4 times. They also said it’s not that great compared to some of the other things you can see around the area. Tanyard loop is one of them, definitely worth the drive.

Not a terrible place if you’re trying to find something to do in the area. It’s pretty in most areas, and it’s not that difficult if you come prepared.

Nice Little trail with a good payout on the end.

It’s not really a “hike”, but a nice, scenic, walk to beautiful falls. Definitely worth it!

I had great ride. first time on trail. some water on trail due to recent rain, but it made it fun and challenging ride for me. Didnt realize I would have to wade across river twice, about knee deep on may 5th.

Absolutely stunning trail with some unbelievably beautiful areas to explore and photograph. I cannot recommend this trail highly enough and I greatly encourage any and everyone to make this trip. The pedestals and caves that are off the main path are well worth exploring and truly awesome. ***WARNING: there are side trails that are extreme perilous for young adults and children that are unfamiliar with the area; some holes in the rocks have plummets of well over 100ft, so take extreme caution when hiking around these areas.*** We hiked this trail and the accompanying nearby King's Bluff loop (see review for that trail, too) and absolutely adored it. Despite the few ticks that were pulled off the next day, it was well worth it. 5/5 stars, easy.
