Excellent trail. Very maintained and marked well. The park staff were very nice and approachable

Great intermediate trail

We hiked this with our dog and enjoyed the diverse landscapes, views, and creek crossings. We hiked the Cedar Creek Trail afterwards and I would highly recommend that shorter (slightly more rigorous) trail for more water crossings and views. Also, don’t miss the scenic overlook towards the entrance of Petit Jean State Park (Stouts Point)

This trail has several things to see. There is the natural land bridge, the grotto, and some turtle formed rocks. All in all, this trail should be on everyone's bucket list.

Not too technical. The sounds of falling water are so peaceful. Not too busy in November.

This trail was very busy, lots of leashed dogs, but totally worth it and all very courteous hikers.

Great trail for a quick afternoon hike! Well-maintained, wildlife and managed to see leaves before all had fallen.

The trail was rewarding especially when you get to see a beautiful waterfall. It was a lot of fun!

Nice trail. Better after a heavy rain.

Great trail for experienced hikers and beginners! Beautiful overlooks and some good bouldering spots

The trails are well blazed and cleared for trekkers. During rainy seasons keep in mind the trails are on a incline into a hallow so the paths could be flowing with water.

Very very nice place

Still a little early for any views. Good workout though.

Good trail. Colors should really peak in the next week or so

Absolutely stunning , crisp morning air a perfect day for hiking Nov. 3 2018

Was definitely a good workout. Brought my two dogs as well and they seemed to enjoy it.

stunning in the fall foilage. highly recommend

Lovely, moderate hike. Well marked trails and beautiful scenery.

Easy, scenic trail

The trail offers 4 scenic hollows that make up for the 3 missing ones. Highlights include ‘Natural Bridge’ and ‘Grotto’. Terrain is variable: groomed/rough, dry/wet, level/steep with lots of natural rocks integrated into the trail. The creek was flowing freely with large rocks well placed to cross over. Poles are helpful to navigate unsteady/steep surfaces. Overall, a wonderful hike.

Good trek. Well marked.

Great trail with the family with doggie clean up bags at the trail head!

This Trail has a Jungle feel to it, which i thought was the best part. Easy Hike.

Great trail. Great view!

Very pretty trail, watch your steps with rocks and stumps. Overall easy trail

Nice loop, not too difficult. Great scenery and creek along majority of the trail with multiple crossings. Grotto and Natural bridge are nice to see.

Just after the rain! An excellent trail!

we went in the evening, trail had very few people on it. it was a beautiful sight. can't wait to return to stay at the lodge and adventure out on more trails.

great trail after a big rain, don’t skip the grotto it’s an extra .25 off the main trail

some big slick rocks but all in all a pretty easy trail if you take your time, I stopped several times and still finished right under 4 hours and I’m pretty slow

Good hike. I agree that the signs and trails are unclear. Our trip was in fog so we didn’t experience the vistas much.

On the loop trail between the beginning and the plane crash site is a diversion off the trail to a couple of small cave up above. Nice unexpected addition.

We liked this trail. Use bug spray and take hiking sticks. At the trail loop we went left, at top trails we went right and then took the west trail around to the north trail bluff. North trail bluff has a great vista. The west trail had good vistas but both would be amazing as leaves turn.

We liked this trail better than Lost Valley trail.
