It was a fun trail to hike but me and my son kept getting off the trails because of the other trails if we did not have the app wen would have been lost.

So glad we went on this trail. Views were beautiful and the caves were really amazing! I would have given it 5 stars but the trails are not marked well at all! We went off a trail and didn’t realize it for quite some time!

Beautiful, but the trail was poorly marked and difficult to follow in places. Included a copy of the trail map in the photos section.

Enjoyable hike, several trails to choose from.

This is a great trail with many small waterfalls and a very beautiful one at the end. UNFORTUNATELY it has been closed for a year and the owner anticipates it being closed until next year. A bear and her cub have taken up residence in the area. This is 2018 and again it may open in 2019.

It’s a short, semi-technical trail that makes for a fun run in town. Some of the back trails are single track, but the highly trafficked areas are wide and even. I’d rate it higher but there’s no access to the lake.

Actually it's a good trail. 90% easy to follow, but there are some spots it kind of is tough to see. Use a map and you won't have any issue. The creek is really beautiful and worth seeing. The hike back is fairly difficult which is why this trail is rated as difficult. If you're in shape the trail not an issue. Use this app to find the trailhead or you won't find it. Enjoy :) I'll go back again.

An amazing hike! I enjoyed the day immensely. Thank you to Steve Singleton and NWA Hiking Group for leading us.

Great hike today! With all the rain this week the waterfalls were flowing. Made the creek crossings more adventurous but was a great hike! One of the harder hikes I’ve been on in the area offering some steeper inclines/declines. Beautiful hike and will be back!

Needs better markings.

Our family has done this trail several times. It is our favorite in the area. It is challenging but well worth it.

This isn’t a well maintained trail. In fact, most of the way down to the creek is via dirt road. A foot path does split from the road about mid way down (blue tape) but I didn’t want to bushwhack. The inconvenience of getting there and having to work a bit at finding your way, however, is rewarded with scenic beauty. If you like a sense of solitude, minus a few beer cans strewn about, this adventure is for you. If you want an organized outing that is a bit more manicured and easy-to-follow, visit another trail. Truthfully, there are segments on the OHT and OT that are just as captivating without the hassle.

Great trail with great views it was marked somewhat well but definitely do the west loop and come down the east side. It's a nice loop but make sure you start early we started at 9 and got back at 5:15 and wish I would have had a little more time.

Beautiful hike in a secluded area!! Once we finally found our way to the trail, we loved every minute of it. There are amazing rock structures, a crystal clear creek, lots of pine trees and gorgeous views. We were not disappointed! The trail itself was not very difficult but it was tough to locate the trailhead. Once you get to the parking area described by others, you will walk down what looks like an atv trail and look for the trail to go off to the right (up a hill). We missed it but eventually found our way. If we had been looking at the app, we probably wouldn’t have missed it. The trail is not marked well at all but occasionally you will see blue tape tied to trees showing the general direction.

Absolutely LOVE this trail! I've taken my kids many times for a quick day hike. Such a beautiful trail and the lookout is so amazing! My go-to place when needing some mountain therapy!!

Very impressed considering it was RIGHT OFF the strip. Felt secluded for the most part but we went during the week. Caves are cool and some climbing, scrambling was possible in a bunch of spots. It was way better than expected you can’t go wrong here since it’s not far off the beaten path and as accessible as you can get

Very tough hike but amazing! Best hike to date

Nice hike to springs, but steep

One of my favorite trails in AR. I went for the second time last week, and the views the whole way to the falls were beautiful. I am definitely going back again soon.

Quiet, secluded, and beautiful. Very well marked and maintained in the Winter. Don't miss the detour to the view at Spy Rock, one of the prettiest around. If you're going to park near the trailhead be sure to bring $3 and a pen to fill out your day use tag and envelope.

Great hike! I did the trail counter-clockwise from Shores Lake Campground and did the White Rock Rim Loop halfway through. I read someone's review earlier who said to do the loop clockwise, but I thought it might be better to do the steep part going uphill instead of down...less risk of injury if really steep boulders. However, after hiking it and seeing that the east approach to the mountain is not actually a "climb" and just a steep hike, I think clockwise is the way to go. It was nice to see the waterfalls on the west side of the loop on the way back, though...a reward for all the work put in going uphill. The whole creek is beautiful - I've never seen water that bluish color before!

Trail is well-marked, except that the overlapping part with the Ozark Highlands Trail does not have blue blazes. I got a bit nervous that I had missed the turnoff in the northwest part of the loop, but then I got to the intersection and it was very clearly marked with signs.

There's not much going on in the east side of the loop, but I really enjoyed the hike overall!

We did this hike Dec. 27th and it was great! it was pretty cold but we stayed warm by adventuring around the falls. the hike to get to the falls is pretty straight forward and easy. once we got to the falls we hiked/climbed around the rocky areas. We aren't totally sure what was part of the trail and what wasn't, but we had a great time making it up as we went.

My girlfriend and I backpacked this trail in October and we both enjoyed it thoroughly. The leaves were only beginning to change colors but still, much to see. Our goal was to camp on top of Spy Rock so we reached the top after only a few hours of hiking. We crossed several dry creeks and found nowhere to replenish our water. However, we prepared for this and packed plenty of water as most of Arkansas is dry during that time of year. The trail is moderately inclined going to the top of the mountain. I would not say it was difficult. Once at the top we found a few great primitive campsites. The view was beautiful. A must see. We enjoyed plenty of time to relax at the top (bring a hammock) before cooking supper and turning in for the night. Sunrise from the top was spectacular and we broke camp after saying goodbye to another backpacker who also camped at the top. I can't remember if we hiked this loop clockwise or counterclockwise but we did see a few trickling waterfalls on our hike out. This was a short overnight trip but left us plenty of time to get done with Sunday chores once we were back home. I certainly recommend this hike.

Decent trail, lots of loose rock.

Rocks Rocks Rocks, It’s a miniature Butterfield trail, and by that I mean it’s a pretty tough trail with not a lot of reward, worth the hike? Yes, but don’t expect many pretty scenic views or anything, and be prepared for lots of loose rock

Quite a distance on loose rocks. Not my favorite.

So beautiful! So untouched. Difficult, but every bit worth the trek. What an adventure!

Trail is very poorly marked at the bottom. Couldn’t find the loop at the end. Like others we just had to retrace our steps back to the top.

This is a great trail especially if you ride mules! Much bigger trail system than what this map shows, it’s easy to get lost. Lots of forest and old logging roads also. Some great views, waterfalls in the Spring. A lot of steep up and down very rocky trails. Well worth the trip.

Was a good trail. West loop had a lot more to see then the east loop. At 36, and one who does not exercise more then a walk/run for 2-3 miles twice a week, this trail was more then I should have taken on for a day hike. We camped at white rock, went down the west loop, did the full loop and came up the east side. By mile 8/9 I was definitely hurting —- just in time to start the ascent. We started at 8am and made it back by 4:45, just as the sun was beginning To go down. Hiked the week before thanksgiving. Trail was easy to find and well marked. Most streams were dry.
