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.

No falls this time of year. Good trail to take your dogs. Not a lot of viewing areas but the ones they had were nice.

The trail was very easy to follow and very well marked! The waterfall was dried up this time of year but I think we will return as soon as we get enough rain to make it flow. Not really steep and pretty level. Would definitely return for this one again and probably combine all three loops into one hike.

Enjoyed this trail, though the waterfall was dry. I would do it again.

Very relaxing

Great float year round and easy to get to from Little Rock

Great Trail well maintained. Small water fall and several great panoramic views on the trail.
