Beautiful trail!

This was a beautiful trail, easy to find off the Buffalo River parking lot. The whole trail is in the woods and shady and it circles and goes though beautiful rock formations you can climb on or between. There is some incline to give it some difficulty, but overall I’d love to return with my kids! Beware poison ivy and ticks.

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.

This is a great hike to take with kids! Lots to see and scramble on. This route has a connection that leads to the hatchery, deer leap trail, fire tower trail or river trail, so using the connections helps in finding the distance you want.

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

Do not discredit the hard trail rating. Very steep with loose rocky footing. Narrow paths poorly marked. Isolated. I used the map on this app and it worked well to find the trail. I enjoyed the challenge. Be prepared— this trail is difficult.

Wife and I just walked this on vacation. I wouldn’t call it a hike as much as a walk. Big hilly sections though. My suggestion when you get to the loop... go right. The pools in the picture were more the creek outside the trail though not in the trail.

Did this trail in July of 2017. Loved it!!! Bring snacks, extra water and watch for rattlesnakes in the rocky area.

Beautiful trail. A lot of people on the look outs who were kind of camped out made it a little less enjoyable, but if people don’t bother you, the trail is nice. Great in the spring with the dogwoods blooming and lots of flowing water.

Great hike. Very scenic. Heavily trafficked on weekends. Worth it though.

Beautiful trail and our dogs were worn out afterwards.

Time just flew by hiking this trail. Love seeing the water nearly every step of the way. The damn is great and this is a must see trail in ES.

Fantastic moderate hike. The trail is clearly marked and easy to keep track of. Which is great, because you really need to mind your footing with all the loose and embedded rocks. The overlook is fantastic. There’s a second ledge a bit past the first, so you can get some great pictures if you are hiking with a partner. This trail also offered several nice stopping points to take a break or grab some water. Easily one of my favorites in NWA.

Loved! Had lunch at the last overlook. We went and it was super hot, but shaded so still bearable. Nice to tag on after the Devils Den Trail.

views from the top were amazing, it got a little confusing towards the end where the trail wasn't marked well where a wooden bridge was blocked off. Amazing view of the valley!

My family enjoyed this hike. Water views throughout. Well maintained trails have enough traffic to make you feel like a part of a community but not so busy they feel congested.

I really enjoy going there. I can hike,mountain Bike, kayak and paddle board. It has it all. They have rv spots and cabins for rent plus new biking cabins.

It was a fun trail but more of just a walk with stairs. I wouldn't classify it as a true trail to hike. Close to the hwy so I could hear traffic. Took away from my purpose for being out in nature.

Such a beautiful trail! Little longer and more strenuous than the Devils Den trail nearby. The overlook is breathtaking! After the overlook, KEEP GOING! The trail continues and it is absolutely beautiful but so many people just turn around at the overlook and go back. You are robbing yourself of some serene Ozark beauty if you turn around!

Trail was moderately difficult with lots of rock steps. Very pet friendly. The scenic overlook was gorgeous, and well worth the hike!! There were no maps posted on the trailheads, so that is something that could be improved upon by park staff. Overall, great trail!

Great hike, bird blinds quarry, creeks and hills...love this hike

Scenic views, rocky terrain, surrounded by trees...it was quite enjoyable!

The area is beautiful. My dogs enjoyed the woods. The trail is hard to follow but with the help of the GPS it was a great trail. The leaves were covering the Rocky trail. Becareful of the loose rocks.
