This trail is a very scenic and is suitable for all ages. The trail is well kept and is easily navigated. There are anchors along the rock face with plenty of routes for rock climbing. Be sure to climb to the peak of Sam's Throne where the view is outstanding.

This and Richland creek trail have got to be my favorite places to hike!

Love it our here. This one is right off the road.

Beautiful views along this quiet trail in mid-March. The marked trail includes a descent down a fairly steep pass, however there is a slightly longer, hike around the bluff that meets with a wide path that takes you down into the valley leading to Sams Throne.

Another amazing AR hike! The views here were outstanding, especially since we went at the peak of fall. We had a couple people show us how to hike all along the upper part of the bluff, and found one spot to climb down and check out the underneath portion. IMO the upper part is the best part though! Will definitely come back!

Easy to find right off the side of the road. Water was flowing really well but I’d imagine it was only due to recent weather.

Great hike. Nothing to strenuous and the views are worth it. Great to go in the rain.

We drove from Springfield, Missouri just to find THE tree!! It was SO worth the drive.

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.

awesome trail! not marked. once you come to a large campsite where Richland creek meets a dry creek bed, cross here. follow the creek bed quarter mile to twin falls. our first attempt landed us at Richland falls. the trail was a heinous mud slide. very dangerous. we walked around on our way back. overall great hike. I love this area, it's going to provide years of exploration.

awesome two day hike! accidentally found richland falls first. when reaching the huge camp site where richland creek meets a dry creek bed , cross richland creek. a trail follows the creek bed .25 miles to twin falls. super fun trail! this area will provide years or exploration.

Awesome views atop.

Great hike! Trail was very poorly marker. I would allow at least 3 hours down and back if you don't stop. So many beautiful places to stop and look around, have a picnic or explore. Loved it. We will return.

I gave this trail a 5 star rating due to the absolute beauty of the area, the unmaintained natural look and the lack of people. for a beautiful video of this trail and the falls go here . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuozGRgvezQ&t=9s
This trail is for more hard core hikers as the trail is not marked and if you do not take a map and compass you will get lost and not find twin falls. just a tip to get to twin falls . . . when you reach the large campsite at the creeks edge you will then need to cross the creek go up and over the mountain and when you reach the creek follow it upstream till you come to the falls. (there are two identical creeks running parallel to each other separated by a mountain)
otherwise if you continue to follow the creek you started on you will come to Richland creek falls (the wide falls).
if you come to these falls first then cross the creek go up and over the mountain and follow that creek UP STREAM till you run into the falls.

Beautiful! Walked across the creek and downstream to a small trail on the other side...leads to a beautiful grotto and Fuzzybutt Falls. No water flowing now but bet it’s beautiful in the spring!

fun hike plus great climbing spot.

Easy hike. Nice views.

Only gave this trail 3 stars because there are no markers on the trees, the trailhead was a little tricky to find, not very well maintained (lots of trees down), and all trails says this trail is 4.4 - ohhh, no it is not!! Ha - to get to the first set of falls and back took about 6 miles. Never actually found the twins... maybe they were up past the first long set of falls but the trail goes dead at this point & didn't want to be stuck out here in the dark w lack of markings. Still, gorgeous falls and a pretty awesome hike (minus the horseflies on Labor Day & snakes).

If someone has a suggestion or tips for getting to the twins, let me know

Quick and easy hike. The trail is not well marked. The hike may be cooler than what I rated it, but we were too exhausted from our previous hikes that morning to go out of our way try to find our way below the bluff.

This is a very pretty area, literally right next to the road. It's where we took my profile pic! What is curious to me is why the is no mention of Fuzzy Butt Falls, just beyond this area?? That is a special site imho!
