We went on this trail yesterday. It was a lot of dirt road driving to get there. The waterfalls were nice. Very rocky trail but easy to do. Great photo opportunity at the end, would be nice to swim in the summer.

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

Great for sightseeing, and both children and my MIL with double knee replacements did well on it. It is pretty crowded on busy weekends.

Easy short hike with a big payoff
Be sure to go after a good rain.
Trail head is Almost exactly parallel to the state park entrance sign on Fayetteville end.... on opposite side of highway. Park in the lot stay on lot side and walk 100y back towards park. It will be on your left . Follow trail left until a clearing on right . Turn R there. If you get to a creek and bluffs. Turn around.
Trek poles and waterproof boots recommended!
Have fun !

Super awesome. Gorgeous. Exciting. Dream like.

Fabulous views for a relatively short hike

Nice short trail to a waterfall that made the drive well worth it. Have gotten some rain yesterday and today. Pretty easy trail but some rocks were a little slick with the rain.

Be mindful of the landslide that occurred in the counter-clockwise direction (mile 15 and 14) as of January 7th, 2019. But other than that, the trail was clearly marked and offered beautiful scenery. I like to recommend this trail to people that are just getting into backpacking, but even if you aren’t a beginner, you will love this small section of the Ozarks that Northwest Arkansas has to offer.

I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. It has quite a bit of diversity. It follows around the lake which is best viewed during leaf off I suppose. The views will be more obstructed during other seasons. It travels through several amazing boulder fields and crosses a creek. The trail does some up and downing and the Lower Eagle Loop along with the length of the trail I would say this is a moderate intensity trail rather than easy. It's length provides a pretty good workout. All in All I loved this trail and will be back sometime to enjoy it again.

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!

Great hike and the waterfall was really moving after the rain. This was a 2 hour drive and was definitely worth it! Recommend taking a lunch and spending some time at the Falls. Trail was not marked well though.

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 with great views. Lots of recent rain so be prepared for some mud and water but still very doable. Only four stars because of all the people.

This place is incredible! You’ll get wet, but worth it if you get to see the Falls in all their glory!

Definitely worth the walk to see the waterfall! The worst part was actually the long drive getting to the trail. We used Green Mtn Road though and it’s in pretty good shape.

enjoyed the 60 degree Jan weather. lots of rain days before so all creek crossings were shin deep. water fall was spectacular as was the pools in the creek. haven't been in drier time but would assume you will always get wet feet at some time. there are other trails that branch off the main line that aren't shown on the map. definitely a great hike

Great walk for the whole family, well maintained path with little elevation change during the loop. There is a $3.00 fee per vehicle. There's a small general store and a well maintained bathroom. There are a lot of tall cliffs if you plan on taking small children, but even still if you can keep them close by I think it will be fine. Great place to watch the Sun come up and set.

we had a ton of fun. loved the natural photo backdrops

Very wet and rugged. Amazing views and beautiful scenery. Involves a creek crossing so prepared to take boots off and wade across. Probably not that way in the summer. Fun and definitely a hidden gem. Looks like there might be a lot of ticks and snakes in the summer so watch your dog.

Beautiful rock formations throughout. Expect to see climbers. No problem for kids. There is one water crossing.

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

The trail was difficult at times (maybe my own fault, because I overestimated my beginner abilities ;-) ). Besides that, amazing views. Our dog enjoyed himself too. We will definitely return.

Very pretty, sometimes smells bad, but still worth it!

Easy, beautiful, calming.

Great view from overlook. We've had some good rain and there were several nice and unexpected streams.

The beginning and the end of the hike will test you, but the landscape is worth it. Highly recommend.

Beautiful and worth the drive as long as you go when the water is flowing

First time to try this trail and really liked it. Easy and lots of pretty views even during an overcast and cold day. Trail is well marked and clean. No motors allowed so nothing but mountain bikes and foot traffic. Looking forward to bringing my kayak when it’s warmer. Loved it!
