Went after it rained and there were several waterfalls, so pretty! Was well kept and trails were easy to follow. Easy, short hike with great scenery!

Nice little trail with some good but easy climbing. Spray down heavily for bugs. We got seed ticks pretty bad! Nice view at the top at least!

Went to it and the gate and trail was closed. Called the number and they couldn't tell me when it would open. Disappointing.

This is a wonderful hike, the only downfall is there are a few sections where you have to wade through tall grass during the summer months. The crack in rock is truly a special landmark.

Bring tick spray!!!

Beautiful trail. I am NOT a hiker but this trail was a great hike.

went to find it today and did not see Gelly Rd.

Beautiful, not too difficult hike. Would definately recommend going!

Doc and I hiked all three trails that start from this trailhead, and, while this isn't a super-challenging wilderness adventure, I believe this is some of the best AR offers. The Lee Creek Reservoir is easy to find and get to, and you can't miss the trailhead. The trails are easy to follow, easy enough for kids, but still fun for someone in good shape. You'll see a waterfall (in season), neat geological features, great views of the reservoir, and get some history in as well.

As one reviewer noted (sort of), there is an abundance of ticks, even in January. Spray up, and do a thorough check of all participants when you get home!

This is a short, fairly easy trail in the Lee Creek Reservoir area. The other three trails are probably a bit more interesting, but this one definitely offers the best views.

The trail is easy to find and follow (you'll see it on the trail map at the trailhead for the Crack in the Rock and other trails). While 90% of the trail definitely warrants an "easy" rating, there's one very, very steep portion that might bump up the difficulty for some.

We followed the trail past the last, best viewpoint, but it just sort of faded.
