This is one of my favorite spots in AR!! It is definitely worth the climb out!

Fun hike. Tons to see.

Great views

The hike is definitely worth it if the waterfall is running. The way to the waterfall is easy and basically down hill the entire time. The way back is a different story. It is essentially stair climbing straight up for approximately 2-2.5 miles. I suggest spending time at the waterfall and then even walking the extra half mile-mile down to the Buffalo River to relax before making the journey back up. All in all, the hike is definitely worth it and you feel so accomplished making it back to the top.

Love this whole area.
Love driving the roads around here.
Hope to have a trip like this one again someday !!!

Great hike, awesome cave. needs some markers so you can find the things that are hidden away. other than that, amazing

Beautiful hike with scattered views along the way. Downhill in - Uphill out. This is a challenging trail coming out for those less experienced or conditioned. However, the waterfall is worth the grind. Spend time at the base taking in the great panoramic views and fueling up before the trek back. Highly recommend.

Pretty good hike, a bit difficult if you aren't physically up for the challenge.

Wow. Amazing area. Elise falls wasn't running, but I wasn't expecting more than a trickle. Smith Creek, however, is flowing, and all of the nicest spots here were in their full glory on a clear, sunny day.

This is a great family spot, and it offers a good experience for all types of hikers. Those averse to insects, narrow/obscure trails, and inclines can stick to the main trail (or just stay indoors already) - though the beginning, right from the trailhead is a doozy - those who are a little more intrepid will enjoy hiking the Upper or Lower trails. All should continue on the trail past the picnic table. That's where it gets good!

Beautiful- take all the trails- the Falls are really nice- Thunder Canyon Falls can be tricky after a rain- slick! Devil's Den is quite a sight too
