My favorite hike in the region, definitely a must-do in the Ozarks. Plenty of shade as you make your way downhill through the forest, passing a couple magnificent waterfalls on the way. The trail runs parallel to a dry creek bed and a few smaller caves as you near the rock house. As for the rock house itself, it's a pretty stunning geological wonder. A most massive cave structure with a stream of water flowing through it. Bring a flashlight to explore some of the caverns. I climbed up through the chimney to explore the the roof of the structure... not much to see up there, it's completely forested over. As with any Arkansas hike, bring the tick spray! The hike back to the trailhead is uphill and slightly strenuous, but nothing compared to the elevation gains in mountain hiking out west.

Words can't describe the beauty of this trail, especially the actually Indian Rock House it's self. Going in is VERY easy due to He fact your defend the majority of the time. Difficulty level coming out depends on the route you return on. If you take the trail to the right at the creek crossing back to the trailhead, it will burn your calves just a little but it's an awesome hike.

Great trail to hike. Steep on the way out back up the mountain. Strong legs required.

7/16/17 Not too strenuous. Good hike for what it is. Saw quite a bit of water flow moving through small creeks but the main creek was dry. Didn't see any wildlife. The caves were pretty cool. Went all the was back up into the Rockhouse. The beginnings of stalactite are everywhere.

This trail has it all! caves, mines, coves, waterfalls and so much greenery.... just gorgeous. I would like to note that this trail is more than moderate difficulty due to the steep climb back up. The trailhead sign itself lists this trail as strenuous. It's worth the hike for sure.

I loved this trail. There is so much to see I'm going to have to visit again just to catch what I missed the last time. The rock house itself is massive and worth the visit on its own!

Kids loved it!!! So much to see and explore. My 5 year old got tired toward the end but my 7 year old did great. I will be taking the rest of the family next time.

This is a great little trail that rewards you with so much, the Indian Rock House is pretty cool and worth the trek off the main trail.
