Great hike if you like to scramble. Lots of cool boulders and places to climb.

Super awesome. Gorgeous. Exciting. Dream like.

I come here often one of my favorite trails in Arkansas. The top of the trail on the dirt road is pretty and easily walked with a few good over looks. The trail down to the waterfall is rather hard but worth it!

hard to find the trail but it was really fun and there's a lot of cool caves.

So much nature...scenic views, difficult trek but so worth it! It was a bit muddy today but the dogs enjoyed this more than the creek!

Great little hike around the lake! As someone else mentioned, the name of the trail is actually Beacham Trail. It was pretty wet and muddy due to recent rain, but still nice. The only sketchy part was the last 0.3 miles where you cross back over the river...it looks like the walking bridge or crossing was washed away at some point, so we got a little wetter than we planned with the high water from the rain. Would definitely do again!

Some times hard to see where the trail was but this was a great trip. Lots of climbing and adventure.

Nice little trail. Just over a mile but perfect if you have limited time, but still want to get a quick hike in.

One of my favourite local trails! It’s got some hills and connects to the larger loop so I can be a little more aggressive if I choose, or make it a quick stop if I have a spare 30 minutes. It is moderately used by both hikers, often with dogs, and cyclists, so be aware of your surroundings. Deducting a star because the land owner refuses to replace the bridge connecting the North Loop with the parking area. When the water is high you’re gonna get wet and that’s all there is to it.

Says it’s closed, but if you park at the part where the road is closed it’s a .4 mile walk to the trailhead, and the trail is smooth sailing. Worth it for the view!

Beautiful place great views I wish they had a trail to lead to the other waterfall you see in the other side but other then that an amazing place

Getting in a little Christmas Eve hike. This is a nice, easy hike. There are some other trails that join up with it so if you want to get more hiking in you can. Some ups and downs for elevation but nothing severe. This is a multi-purpose trail so be aware of the mountain bikers. There is ample parking and have never had a problem getting a spot to park. There are some nice rock formations and a spot where if there is a good rain gives you a bit of a waterfall coming off one of the rock formations and falling down to the creek. Nice to have this trail just 15 minutes from me when I need a quick break.

Lost Valley is temporarily closed for construction til first of March 2019. check Buffalo River's website before going.

Nice trail, easy to follow. Being it is a Monday there were only a few others on the trail. It's an easy trail with some elevation gain but nothing steep. My watch said 4 miles in 1 hr 21 minutes. Was lucky enough to see deer so that made me feel a little more out in nature. This trail is in town so if you are looking for complete peace from noise this may not be for you. Though very peaceful there were parts where you can hear people as there are homes close and you do hear some traffic at the front part of the trail as you are not that far off of 49. But still if you are looking for a hike that isn't a long drive you have one right here. If you are taking small children keep an eye on them as there are a couple spots where if they get off trail there could be quite the fall.

Nice hike. Had some rain a couple days before so the creek was running so crossing it with it being a bit chilly out was a no-go. The waterfall was flowing though so that was good. The homesite was interesting. Trail wasn’t busy when we started but was picking up on our way back.

Great trail with great views! Have to watch for the markings to get to the second waterfall, but overall an easy trail!

Breathtaking trail!

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!

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!

this trail name is actually Beacham trail. if you decide to walk it backwards like we decided to, you'll need to know that. We went the Leatherwood route and it took us way far away from where we wanted to be. Many trails in that area, and I think we walked them all! Beautiful day for it thankfully!

Great hike, very well marked for the most part, lots of trails to choose, beautiful scenery and a great way to spend a few hours of your day... we followed blowing springs and boom diggidy which ended up being right at 4 miles total. I would say it was an easy to slightly moderate hike but it might be moderate to hard for mountain bikers. Overall I definitely recommend this trail.

A really nice trail. I especially like the Boom Diggity portion. It was easy, though, in my opinion.

a lot of bang for your buck. Good parking and restrooms with running water. We stayed to the right the whole trail and was mostly a loop with an out and back at the very top.
Gorgeous place with the falls, mossy rocks, fall leave. Tuesday afternoon some people but certainly not crowded.
Picnic area too. So glad we went as a second hike for the day.

Great weather for a hike! We missed most of the fall color, but was still very lovely. The damn bridge is beautiful.

Awesome! Bring flashlights to explore many cave areas.

Easy trail on 11/09/18. Good for beginners and children, especially wandering around in the lower caves, Jig Saw Blocks, Eden Falls and natural bridge. The more moderate up/down is at the top to the big cave; as said, probably not suitable for kids.

I have enjoyed this trail multiple times and never get tired of exploring it and seeing it in different seasons! Highly recommend for beginners and experts

Great trail, the fall colors were at their peak, even with the parking lots full and cars parked along the road it was still a nice hike. Once you are on the trail people spread out and find their own places so it's not wall to wall people all the time. It is still nicer in the middle of winter when their are no crowds and you have the place to yourself ....sometimes.
