Lots of cool sites along this trail. Grotto is a must, really nice area.

Very scenic. Pretty well marked over all. Watch out for 1.4 miles one-way off shoot in the NW corner

Excellent view! The drive up to the cliff may take around 20-25 because the gravel road.

It is a beautiful hike but you have to be careful because it’s mostly all rock. It has great scenery if you stop and look. I would say it’s hard for beginners that’s not use to hiking. I’ve done it twice.

Really nice trail. The half mile round trip spur to the grotto is worth it. Signage is good enough to follow. Lots to look at on the trail, although the rocks can be a little treacherous when they get wet. Probably great colors in fall. Parking is limited, but wasn't an issue on a Saturday morning in December.

Good hike! Some hills. Mostly through the woods, but some lake views through the trees. We did loop 1 and 2.

My absolute favorite. The view was amazing. The road was rough wish we had a 4 wheel drive would hate to even think of trying it after a rain. Once you reach the parking area you will be glad you came

I’m going to echo what Destiny said about the drive up to the trailhead. I did not expect the drive there and back to be so difficult on my car. It is narrow, there are no lights and the incline is high. After that drive, I’m now thinking about buying a Toyota 4Runner. I rated it a 3 because of the drive. Unfortunately although the views are amazing, I don’t think I’ll come back because of the drive. Past that, it is a very easy hike. We hiked Hemmed-in-Hollow right before Whitaker Point. It was nice. It took us 1.5 hours RT. We stopped to take pictures, of course. It is a very easy trail to follow. No complaints. Amazing views.

Difficult but worth it.

Excellent family hike with kids. If it's hot, there's a great swimming hole.

This is a great trail for getting out on a short day hike. We’ve taken the kids, the 9 & 6 year old did great. The 3 year old rode in a carrier & was over it about mile 3 but he prevailed. Ha! It’s got a great stopping spot for snacks & a breather at the lake.

My 1st hike and it was AMAZING!!!! A must see and you will return.

Did this trail couple of weeks back during fair weather (55) and started around 3pm. this I'd a fairly easy hike with amazing view of Ouachita Lake. Got to see the sunset and it was a decent hike back in time before it was dark. The office near the trailhead had clean restrooms and water with nice staff. Definitely recommend this hike.

One of my favorite hikes within a 4 hour radius. It’s amazing. Easy for kids, easy for adults, the switchbacks heading back out of the ravine towards the parking lot can be rough on the littles and the out of shape but there are just a couple so it’s not a big deal. I would definitely not want to be out there after dark, so watch your clock during the winter months and leave enough time to get back to car. Several creek crossings, a waterfall, lots of opportunity for kids to scramble, and incredibly views once you hit the bluff line. The edge is sheer once you pass the waterfall so I don’t know if I would bring kids unless they can mind very well. My 8 year old did ok but he’s used to it. An incredible view of the ozarks. It will be a yearly trip now. One thing to note. The drive up was horrendous in my civic. Next time I will be borrowing a 4x4. Incredibly steep county road. Made the 11% graded highway look flat. Happy trails !

Absolutely gorgeous! The fall leaves just added to the beauty, but also made the trail a little slick! Fun adventure during training.

Amazing hike with amazing views. We did the hike in 2.5 days

Got to trailhead right at sunrise. Five cars all ready there. First mile just a walk in the woods. Next half mile had cliffs to look off, quite a few rocks to get unique photos. The crag was cool..got some great pics..although at sunrise there is quite a glare. Nice area , but we had driven 1.5 hours to get there...wouldn't do that again...just not enough character. 2 hour hike...3 hour drive all together..

It is a decent loop. We walked it fast because we were excited to do the summit trails.

Very nice and quick!

This trail follows the water which is amazing. We started from the Big Agnes North Trail in a clockwise direction. This means the higher elevations are completed last. There are a few places where the trail markings are lacking. Several hikers have tied ribbons marking the trail. We found using the Guthook app really made it easygoing. It works offline which is great since there is no phone service near the trail. The service roads that access the trail are small and have one lane bridges so exercise caution.

We did this hike in the August heat. It was crowded, but still a great hike! The waterfall was well worth it!

great trail.

Absolutely amazing and challenging trail. Started on Wednesday, November 21st at 10:25am and finished Friday, November 23rd at 10:45am. We went clockwise and trekked nearly 11 miles, camping soon after crossing Eagle Rock Vista and the next ridge. Camped along the stream in the valley at some nice campsites. Early start the next morning began with some truly challenging climbs but the views were worth it. Hammered out a total of 11.5 miles that day and camped near a meadow just shy of Albert Pike. Knocked out the next 5 1/2 or so the next morning with the last mile in the pouring rain. We saw deer, raccoon, and heard something early one morning howl like a wolf (it was not coyotes, I’ve had tons of experiences with them). Didn’t see bears but I sure wanted to, from a distance of course. I highly suggest getting in good shape for this hike. I thought I was in pretty good shape but the ridges kicked my tail. Also, call the ranger offices to check the water levels because there are tons of water crossings.

Been here several times. Love it every time

Surprisingly nice hike. Varying terrain - ups & downs, rocks, creeks etc. Not for one that has not hiked before.
