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 hike for December 2 weather! Beautiful scenery and camping at the Top of mountain. They have 3 cabins and a lodge. Ice cream at the Top!

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

Beautiful hike and wonderful waterfalls

amazing. right after a storm and there were three falls going. the Twins to the left and another smaller but very pretty one to the right.

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.

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.

Hiked this trail yesterday. Goal was to hike to HIH, but we ended up hiking to the river instead. Missed the last “To Falls” sign on a tree (which is probably about 0.5 miles away from HIH) and instead saw the “To River” sign. So I’ll say keep your eyes open for the “To Falls” sign on a tree to your left once you pass the “0.7 miles to falls” post. We saw the sign on our way back up but wanted to get back as we had another trail to hike before dark. We were the only ones on the trail the entire time we were there. It was nice, quiet and peaceful. The hike back up gives your thighs a good burn (also didn’t help that I had leg day the day before). In total it took us about 3 hours RT. We stopped to take pictures a few times and also spent about 10 minutes at the river.

Little late on getting this review up, old age. This hike can be heavily trafficked at times due partially to its relative proximity to the Fayetteville/Bentonville area and because it offers some great hiking. It offers a great view from the overlook. It was very busy the day we hiked but there was plenty of room to sit and have lunch at the overlook.

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.

Another one of my favorite trails in Arkansas. The initial incline is tough for little legs and those out of shape ( I definitely felt it whew) but it’s over quick and the rest of the trek is easy peasy. The big pay off is the lookout. Be sure to go a little farther past the lookout to get yet another near view. My 8 year old handled it like a pro. Side note. I had cell signal the entire top of the trail which is nice for emergencies. Only realized it bc a coworker called me while we were out . Look out for snakes in the ravine and switchbacks during warm weather. We saw a copperhead.

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 !

had a freaking big cat try to eat me!!
I've hiked this and floated to here many times. but I've never hiked at night intell my last hike.
be careful out there!!!

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..

Very nice and quick!

Go as early as you can! The falls are so peaceful alone and the sunlight at around 10:30a was beautiful on the waterfall. We saw several groups backpacking in on our way back up but had the falls to ourselves and had lunch in the fall basin. The trail is absolutely difficult but totally worth it. The fall/winter is probably the time to go if you want a drier hike. Overall very positive experience. But the hike up kicked our butts! We’ll probably try again in the spring to experience the green and water crossing.

A well maintained trail suitable for all ages! Incredible weather for November made for a wonderful hike today.

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

The trail is nice and well marked. It's easy to access from northwest arkansas. We hiked it clockwise and camped at the primitive camping sites arpund 9.5 miles. i think there were 6 primitive campsites and everyone of them was occupied. It was not awful but i think its worth knowing you wont be the only one on the trail.

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 trail. I liked clockwise the best.

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.
