Nestled in the natural beauty of the Ouachita Mountains on 1,940-acre Lake Catherine, one of the five popular Diamond Lakes in the Hot Springs area, Lake Catherine State Park features CCC/Rustic Style facilities constructed of native stone and wood by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Situated along the lakeshore are the park's 18 cabins that feature fully-equipped kitchens. Most have wood-burning fireplaces. The park's fully-accessible cabin, the Polly Crews Cabin, was designed in detail to serve the needs of visitors with disabilities. The cabin also includes its own private and fully-accessible fishing pier and boat dock. The 1,160-square-foot cabin is a design inspired by the rustic architectural designs of five other cabins in the park. An accessible parking space and path provide barrier-free access to the cabin. The two-bedroom cabin includes a bathroom offering both a spa tub and a roll-in shower. Just outside the cabin's screened porch overlooking the lake is a large flagstone patio with a picnic table and pedestal grill.

Very few people on this part of the trails. Some great views of the lake.

Great hike with a pretty little waterfall. The only downside is the amount of trash around the waterfall.

I really enjoyed this trail. Well maintained with man made crossings. The trail has some steep sections but climbing is not required. Pause to enjoy the creek in both directions.

Pretty tough climb for he average hiker. Definitely not easy. Prepare for some serious rocks as you descend on the waterfall. Adventurous for sure!

Took my fur baby out today! It was amazing!!! I'm taking my kids next week!! It's not an easy trail so watch your step. But once you see the falls it's all worth it!!
