nice little hiking trail and love the cave

I love this hike! I go all the way around! You can hike the creek bed. Along the waterfall.
It is busy at times. But, overall it is a great place to hike.

Going in as one of my favorites! The cliff rocks. The foliage. The lizards. The cave! The lake! It is definitely a moderate hike. Steep in places. Close to the edge in others. Loose rock, so good shoes needed. It is very worth the time tho.

very easy trail, mostly sidewalk, then when you get to the falls you can climb over rocks and get right up to it, there's a really nice cool breeze on a hot summer day.

I wouldn't call it a hike because all 0.2 miles of the path is on wooden planks but the waterfall is really gorgeous. Definitely worth checking out and getting in the water for a quick cool down.

Great trail but a little overgrown.

I'm from Rogers and have spent a lot time at Lake Atalanta during my child hood. My mema lived in a house up the hill from the lake and we would walk around the lake regularly. I'm a runner and love running trails. Two years ago when I figured out that they spent a lot of time and money to fix up the park and make trails around the lake I was very excited a spent two days running around the lake. I've made it a point to go there ever time I go home. If you take the hardest route of trails it's pretty technical lots of quick elevation changes and twist and turns. Beautiful views and always a great run. Much better than the humdrum of road running. The only thing I'm not to keen on is the board walk. I understand why they did it but in my opinion they could have left it out and just fixed up the road that went around it. It is fun to run on but it is the one thing I would change about it.

Just biked this trail for the 1st time and loved it!We’re beginners(3rd ride), so was probably more challenging for us and our 11 yr. old than most people. I see us going back weekly and riding this trail, because we enjoyed it so much.

Using the directions from this app we found the trail with no issues, although it is in the middle of nowhere haha we were thinking we had gone the wrong way before we finally ran into a local on the narrow dirt road and he told us we were right around the corner.
The trail was easy for the most part and the end result is def worth all of the time it took to find and hike the trail. Beautiful rock, waterfall, and water! Would love to go back during rainy season as the water flow wasn’t as much as I expected. Our 6 year old twins absolutely loved it!

This trail is amazing, and I can’t believe that we haven’t been here before! It has history, varied terrain, a beautiful creek all along it, rock formations, a fantastic waterfall; we LOVED IT. Definitely will be back!

My 11yr old son and I did this hike on a Monday evening. There were only a couple of other people on the trail so not bad. We did not have cell service in this area. The natural bridges were really cool. The big one (the one you walk over at the beginning) is pretty amazing underneath. I rated this trail 3 stars because it did seem to be more overgrown on parts of the trail and I did feel like there could be better trail markings. We actually missed the trail just beyond one of the smaller natural bridges and took off on what looked like a trail (and obviously other people had thought the same) before it came to a pretty overgrown dead end. We retraced our steps and realized we had completely missed the actual trail which seemed pretty obvious when we got there because it had steps. The couple behind us had missed it too. Besides that little misstep, it was a nice short hike and took maybe 35-45 minutes total.

This was a neat, easy trail with cool features to explore. Will come back in the fall or spring when the creek is flowing, but it was fun even in the dry summer.

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

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.

Do not go clockwise on the trail. you need to go counterclockwise or stay to the right because if you follow the sign left, the trail starts off kind of clear but about a mile into it it gets very very thick and is not well worn at all. The trail gets thick and difficult to follow and there are still trees down blocking the path that you have to go through under or over. Overall, it was an okay hike and I think it will be better in the fall especially after a heavy rain.

Was really excited for this trail. Left early morning from Kansas to come to this trail and we walked it for a good 45 minutes and realized there is no water at all... nothing like the pictures show. I was really disappointed.

Really love this little loop. Pretty easy path through lots of woods. A few exposed stretches. Only real complaint is that it's so close to the road in some places.

This trail was great!! We took a 8 and 3 year old and had a blast! Be sure to pack your swim suit.

Good easy hike. Kids and pet friendly. Unfortunately the falls were pretty dry at this time of the year.

Very easy trail with beautiful views!

Great trail!! A bit interesting for a 4,5,7 yr olds, but they still had a good time.

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.

Great little trail, not marked up so the reviews were very helpful to locate. We did end up going too far though looking for the cave! Once you find the waterfall, cave trail is to the right. You have to hike down to get to it. So neat and very secluded. We were the only ones out there when we went on a Saturday afternoon.

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!
