This is a beautiful hike! Lots of benches for those they may need to rest. Clear trail.

Great trail, beautiful views. we saw several deer and lots of squirrels. Took us about 3 hrs to do the full 5 miles.

Great trail, went out for a short day hike today and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful bluffs over looking the lake, lot's of ups and downs. I look forward to completing the whole trail.

Fair amount of traffic on the trail, but we went during the last week of summer. We didn't hike the extra loops this time, but we plan to go back to try them in the future.

Very nice walk and very clean and maintained. There are 3 loops that are a little more moderate hike that were fun. Pretty views.

I love this hike! I go all the way around! You can hike the creek bed. Along the waterfall.
It is busy at times. But, overall it is a great place to hike.

Great trail. Can’t wait to complete the entire loop.

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 trail is awesome, and not just for the area. It has enough challenging elements to keep it from being boring. The trail crosses a main road, if you want to skip the really challenging parts then just turn around there. If you are looking for an adventure cross the road and party on. I have athletic dogs built for trails and they had a blast. Wouldn't recommend older dogs or dogs that can't jump anymore to do the highest point of the trail across the road. We had to go off leash to naviagte some parts safely so a definite no if your dog has poor recall or has not been trained in recall.

This trail is amazing, and I can’t believe that we haven’t been here before! It has history, varied terrain, a beautiful creek all along it, rock formations, a fantastic waterfall; we LOVED IT. Definitely will be back!

Awesome trail! Very scenic

Nice little hike/walk. The Nature Center was at the beginning of the trail, super friendly, and helpful staff, and Rangers. Went early Monday morning, and didn’t run into anyone else. Wish It was longer. .

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

A little steep in a couple of places, but very pretty. my phone said 4.9 miles, not 3.9. At the very end I ran into a gigantic bunch of seed ticks though.

loved the area, it would have been better in spring or fall but still beautiful. parking for this area is horrible, I rode a motorcycle there and it was difficult to get out of. a low car would also have trouble.

We only had an hour to hike so we couldn’t do the whole trail but what we saw was beautiful.

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.

Beautiful view but the trail was not well marked.

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

Had my first ride at Slaughter Pen yesterday. Amazing trails, well manicured, and very challenging. Worth all the pain.

It's a unique and cool high point. Cool views on top. It's hot and there's zero shade. Pretty easy hike as others have said - one small climb to top of mesa. Saw a rattlesnake on way down...be careful!

LOVED hiking this trail on and off! we went adventuring up and down the rockface and it was SO exhilarating with beautiful views, a couple of neat little caves and refreshing waters at the falls! also a big plus to have multiple options for camping! (cabins, tent, or rv)
