Great trail. Wonderful views. Loved it and would definitely do it again!!

Great hike, great views

Great little hike downhill ... to get there. The reward is well worth the trek back up the hill.

Great walking trails walked two of the seven that they had. Beautiful views and well marked!

the family loved this trail. it wasnt too difficult for my 7 yr old and the area is awesome.

nice little hiking trail and love the cave

The entire trail is an ATV trail. Will return during leaf-off when the views will be better. Walked down the trail to the campsite where someone had left their tent unpegged and also left a bunch of garbage in the fire pit. The views, once you reach the roost, are beautiful, but not worth the atv hike in the summer. Lots of wildlife and am eager to return in the winter.

Great family friendly trail with lots of sights and activities packed into a short hike. Fun and beautiful.

Great little hike. The beginning was a little boring but the falls were a spectacle to see. Also the cave was a little creepy as it was getting dark later in the evening.

Round trip: 3miles
Elevation gain: 846ft
Time: 1hr 5min

This turned out to be one of my favorite trails close to where I live. Beautiful lake view and the rock formations were amazing. I was pleasantly surprised. I can say that the lower trails below the bluffs had a thousand spiders & webs ticks & chiggers, but that's to be expected this time of year. Don't forget your bug spray!
This is a trail I will be hiking often!

also found a bear prints in mud puddle on the trail. Wish I could've seen it. that would've made it even better.

The views were simply amazing. Waterfalls, caves, wildlife ❤️

The view is nice, but getting there is something else. The gravel road up to the trail is in poor condition. There were some rocky trenches in the road making it inaccessible to some vehicles. There is currently no parking area. There are a couple giant piles of gravel on each side of the road, one before and one after the trail. The trailhead is not distinguishable by vehicle. Just park near the trailhead (GPS) and locate on foot. Most of the path is also becoming overgrown with poison ivy, which may be a problem for some. I think taking the rest of the trail up there would have been better. I prefer hiking up difficult and rocky inclines over driving up them.

Great trail. If you have bad knees I would be cautious most of this train is lost on large steps and large lost rock!

Pay attention to your map! A TON of people we talked to along the way told us we were at the top when we were only halfway up. There are roads at both trailheads, if you don't see a parking lot and a road you are NOT done.

Very cool trail. As first time park goers we couldn't find the waterfalls, so definitely have a good map!

Using the directions from this app we found the trail with no issues, although it is in the middle of nowhere haha we were thinking we had gone the wrong way before we finally ran into a local on the narrow dirt road and he told us we were right around the corner.
The trail was easy for the most part and the end result is def worth all of the time it took to find and hike the trail. Beautiful rock, waterfall, and water! Would love to go back during rainy season as the water flow wasn’t as much as I expected. Our 6 year old twins absolutely loved it!

Very easy hike and lots of cool things to see, you have to go into the cave at the very end!

My dogs absolutely loved hiking this trail. The waterfall is just far enough in that the dogs are tired but not exhausted when we get there. It’s very refreshing. 1 mile to the waterfall and back to the car is great exercise for my pets.

The trail was really challenging for us as we are beginners but was worth it.

On July 28, 2018, I drove to the trail. The trail head Was not located at the point to which AllTrails brought me. I found it about a half mile down the road. Great! After a fairly steep to send it down to a creek bed (about .3 mile), I lost the trail. The OHT? It must have been me. After looking for about 20–30 minutes, I decided to head back. I came across a rattlesnake that was a little testy about my presence. Even though my hike was aborted, the trail gets one star because I saw my first rattlesnake in the wild. Plus, a trail familiar to me, Spyrock, was nearby and provided a suitable adventure.

We LOVED this trail! My 11yr old son and I did this hike on a Monday and it wasn't crowded at all. This trail has so much to explore along the way. The natural bridge, large rock shelter, waterfall (just a trickle currently), and the cave were all fun. I had read reviews previously so we came prepared to explore the cave with headlamps and flashlights. Explored far enough back that we were very cramped and then squeezed into a little tunnel where we could stand up that led back out. There was also a very large "room" just to the left when you enter the cave. As others mentioned, the rocks around and in the cave are slick so be cautious. Overall, a very cool trail and one that I would love to do again if I'm back in the area. I think we spent about an hour and a half doing the whole trail.

My husband and I did this trail. Very pretty trail. There were parts that were rocky but overall a really good trail. Several places to sit, rest, and relax.

Me and a friend recently hiking the BHT on the hottest day of the summer so far and besides the heat and ridiculous amount of seed ticks, it was a pretty good hike. We hiked it in a day and a half, camping at Junction Camp overnight. The camp areas are well maintained and a lot of them include rock furniture. There are a couple of swimming holes that you can veer off the main trail to see that are a great way to stay cool. There's quite a bit of hiking up hill and down hill on loose rocks, some parts of the trails are better kept than others. From miles 8-11 it was very overgrown when we hiked, almost to the point where we had to guess where the trail was. This hike has some good overlooks, and rock overhangs to check out. I just suggest bringing plenty of water in the summer and covering up. It's not enough to just treat your clothes with tick repellant. Also lots of spier webs when we hiked but if it's a busy time of year then they should be cleared out you :)

Great trail and moderately easy. Only small inclines that we’re short! We have had so much fun exploring Arkansas. We were able to take the Drone and get some amazing footage of Yellow Rock Overlook. Please check it out at this link

Beautiful view of the falls and very easy walk to get there!

We love this trail. Even with the river beds dry later in the summer it is still a lot of fun to hike and climb the rocks. The cave was awesome! Bring a flashlight or headlamp! A great place for a family outing. Our kids love it as much as we do!

On 7/15/18, I hiked both this and the Yellow Rock trails, which I suggest doing. The FF trail was nice and peaceful, and provided me with various opportunities to explore the creek bed. The YR trail was more vertical, and provided numerous spectacular vistas. To top it off, there is a knee-deep “swimming hole” near the YR trailhead.

It was a beautiful, scenic trail. We took lots of pictures of the surrounding mountainsides. Wish I could say I’d be back when the waterfall was flowing, but I came from out of state. We explored the campgrounds as well. I’d definitely recommend the park to anyone who loves camping and hiking.
