Wonderful hiking place. On the way to Whitaker point, there are lot of view spots.

One of my favorite trails in Arkansas. We started at Cripple Turkey on December 1st and ended at Allison on December 2. A lot of waterfalls and bluff outcroppings. I would definitely do this one again. The scenery was amazing.

Third time on this trail and it gets better each time. Went beyond the eye into the mountain.

Great trail, we went after a rain so plenty of water!

The attached map does not show you the bushwacking route to get to the different waterfalls. The waterfalls are nice. im sure there is any easier way to get to all the landmark sites. I would allow yourself plenty of time to find your way to all the waterfalls and to finish the loop. It's a rugged good time if you dont know your way around.

Great short hike with two amazing caves and two great waterfalls. Can’t beat it for a short easy hike!

Such a gorgeous hiking trail. definitely my all time favorite

Beautiful hike and wonderful waterfalls

Nice drive and seeing the elk is always nice.

This is a nice hike but note than you go downhill to start with so on the way back it’s uphill. I didn’t think it was bad but just be aware. With last nights storm everything was wet and muddy but that also meant the water was flowing. There is limited parking. There was only a few other people out on the trail today so no crowds to deal with.

Water was flowing good after last nights storm. Limited parking and a guy with a horse trailer parked in such a manner that he took up the whole parking area. We were able to park about 25 yards down along the tree line. This is a short easy walk but what a payoff!! The gravel road down was not an issue. I have an AWD Ford Edge but watched a car make it as well so shouldn’t be an issue for anyone.

Road in there was a straight downhill wouldn’t want to travel it after a rain you would have a horrible time. The parking area and trail was very clean and it was very close to walk to the falls.

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

You can drive up red bluff road and go park right above the cave if you aren’t up to hiking all the way around. You will be about 10 minutes from the cave. It is a beautiful sight to see and walk around

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.

What beautiful colors! 1st trip for the fam and it won’t be the last! The cave was cook, make sure you bring a flashlight!

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

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 !

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..

Loved it! Easy hike. Kids had a great time!

The scenery was wonderful. Well worth the time to explore, but be aware there are no real signs that show the loop or where the trails are at. It was fun to sort of make our own though.

My family loved this way of getting to know Canyonlands NP. We did not have any trouble with our Subaru Outback. Really worth it, but I would be really hesitant to drive it if the weather is not forgiving

Loved this trail. I hiked from Barkshed to Allison and was impressed by the scenery. Massive bluffs, rock outcroppings and formations much like you would see along the Buffalo River, only on a slightly smaller scale. Ended up camping at a great spot by a big bluff and possibly the smallest waterfall on Earth about 1.5 miles from Blanchard. I got a shuttle from Sylamore Creek Camp which works great just note they are located one mile from the trailhead. I would also add this is possibly the best marked trail I’ve been on.

Beautiful trail on a picture perfect 65 degree, sunny day. All passer-by’s and fishermen were friendly. Excellent day.

Not much parking so get there early! Views are amazing.
