Gorgeous spot would highly recommend!! It can be a little difficult in areas but made it with 2 Great Danes strapped on a runners leash.

Nice trail. Always rocky here in NWA, but still a good trail. Waterfall and Glory Hole were both good, especially Glory Hole! Very unique!

We drove two hours (from Cabot) to get to the trail. We did not know what to expect, but it turned out to be such a great hike! The trail is nice, and in many places wide and very doable with the family. There were many, many things to see along the way, so it’s not just the Gloryhole that is so awesome. There’s lots of little waterfalls as you walk down the trail, and you can actually walk right up by the stream and go off of the main trail, getting a pretty constant view and sound of the water! Once you make it down to the Gloryhole, there are lots of places to sit and relax and take in the sights and the sounds. The sound of rushing water was so relaxing on a pretty warm day! Going back up the trail is moderately rigorous, but it doesn’t last long! My kids, who have hiked many places in Arkansas, said this is their very favorite trail!!! If you have never been, or even if you have, what a fun and awesome place to hike!!!! Oh, and bring an extra change of clothes and shoes for the kids, because they were in and out of the Gloryhole dozens of times! 3/26/20

Beautiful trail. Kid friendly. Pretty muddy but worth it because all the rain makes for amazing waterfalls.

Had a great time today with “social distancing”. 1st time here. Newby. Little muddy but not bad. Easy downhill, tough goin back up. Had a heavy backpack, won’t do that again.

Once we found it, we enjoyed it. We drove past it multiple times, though. The trail is in pretty good shape. If you can manage to hike this after it rains, it’s even more impressive.

Good trail. Yesterday it was muddy in spots. It was beautiful to see the waterfall. We climbed down to see water falling from the hole at the bottom.. Very cool, but had to be very careful. We could had easily fallen. Going down the trail was easy. Down hill all the way with some flat trail walking. Uphill 3/4 of the way back was a different story. Wear boots.... makes it much easier than wearing athletic shoes.

Great day to hike, waterfalls flowing full, and two unmarked additional waterfalls. Very steep walk back, worth it.

Really great trail to start the day with! We hiked it a day after a light rain, and some parts of the trail were slippery/muddy, but still doable. The beginning of the trail isn’t very exciting, but once you get about half a mile in, it’s totally worth the hike.

Nice walk down but pretty steep coming back up. Totally worth it though. Glory hole is amazing!

One of my personal favorites! We enjoy climbing down and being near the water coming through the rock!

My favorite hike! Beautifully breathtaking scenery. Definitely a moderate hike. And definitely worth your travel to get there! All nestled in the mountain. Just amazingly beautiful!

2-29-20 we went to hike the Glory hole trail. Great trail, easy to find. There is a sign off the road to find the trailhead. We loved the big boulders to climb on. There was a nice waterfall through the hole. We saw all ages on the trail. Recommend this one!

Says not ATVs but of course there was lots of ATVs so the trail has huge holes and ruts so muddy after rainfall. Very beautiful area, three main waterfalls all pretty close together!! The hike back up is pretty hard core you gain about 700ft or more elevation in a short time!

The falls were pretty but not one of my favorites. Scramble down to falls was really steep and not the most stable ground. It was gorgeous once I got down there. Really peaceful and not a lot of people when I was there.

Great day for hiking! As others have said, parking is $3 which to me is worth it. If you don't want to pay it you can use Tim Ernst's book to get the coordinates for where he parked. Trail was muddy and slick in spots as a result. What goes down must come up so enjoy the walk going down as you may not enjoy it coming back up. We went left at the bottom first to hit Spirit and Mountain Fork falls first. Beautiful falls as they were flowing good today. Walking sticks are helpful on this hike. The hike out wasn't bad but that will depend on your hiking conditioning. It's steep. Definitely plan to go back when it is warmer to hit the swimming hole.

Great time and beautiful scenery if you love waterfalls. Easy walk down to the actual falls.

We loved this hike! The whole hike was fun and the glory hole is awesome!! We liked how you can walk around and behind it.

Great trail. Good scenery.
