The Ozark National Forest spans 1.2 million acres and is located predominantly in the Ozark mountains in northern Arkansas. Within this National Forest you can hike Mount Magazine, the tallest mountain in the Arkansas, or explore Blanchard Springs Caverns, a living underground cave. This scenic area administered by the Forest Service offers cabins atop White Rock or beside Lake Wedington, ample opportunities for wildlife viewing, picnics sites, hiking trails, scenic drives, diverse forests, and tons of recreational opportunities.

Fun going down, not so fun coming back up! Short round trip with some amazing scenery.

Nice hike along King’s River. Waterfalls ♥️

Beautiful views along this quiet trail in mid-March. The marked trail includes a descent down a fairly steep pass, however there is a slightly longer, hike around the bluff that meets with a wide path that takes you down into the valley leading to Sams Throne.

We hiked out to the Hawksbill Crag this past week. It was a very enjoyable hike. It was not very difficult, about 3.2 miles with about 100 ft of ascent. My 4 yr old daughter handled the hike without issue. The view from the Crag was something to behold. Highly recommend this hike.

We hiked from Barkshed to Gunner Pool and back. It was beautiful. Both recreation areas are a great place to bbq and relax after a rigorous hike

Another amazing AR hike! The views here were outstanding, especially since we went at the peak of fall. We had a couple people show us how to hike all along the upper part of the bluff, and found one spot to climb down and check out the underneath portion. IMO the upper part is the best part though! Will definitely come back!

This is a great trail with many small waterfalls and a very beautiful one at the end. UNFORTUNATELY it has been closed for a year and the owner anticipates it being closed until next year. A bear and her cub have taken up residence in the area. This is 2018 and again it may open in 2019.

When we arrived there were only a few cars at 8:30am, and we saw minimal people in passing on the way in. Then on the hike out, they came in by the droves! But I don’t blame them, the views of creation are beautiful from this trail.

It was a scenic hike, but lots of people on this trail after 10am.

Easy to find right off the side of the road. Water was flowing really well but I’d imagine it was only due to recent weather.

Waterfalls, beautiful rock formations and not too bad of a hike!! Perfect

The hike was good and not too hard! The rocks are amazing. There’s a cave system underneath the trail too that is worth spending time looking through. Beautiful!

The trail is easy to follow and the glory hole is impressive! Lots of rocks to climb on if you continue on the trail!

The hike was easy and beautiful. I’ve been in different seasons and all are lovely.

This was a great well marked trail. When you get near the falls you can hug the wall on left and climb through a slightly dark area to the falls or you can go straight across the rocky area towards the falls and both places will bring you right up to the falls. The fall was amazing and so worth the trip. You can even go under it with lots of room. Its high cliffs above make a dome around it. We saw a bat flying around so be sure and germ x after you leave.

Took just a short trip down the road to the first falls. Saw a couple young guys jumping off into the water. Pretty chilly since it was March 3rd. Very nice drive. Will be better in a couple weeks when the dogwoods start to blossom.

Nice trail a little wet in areas but good water falls and river due to recent heavy rains. Gotta watch your footing as a lot of loose rocks and stones. Well worth the extra climb to get behind the falls.

Awesome Hike, Beautiful Views

Took my youngest son this past weekend. Lots of water. Some ankle and hip turners on the way down and the rocks were very slippery. If you use the trail next to the stream, there are some hidden holes. Just be careful.

So beautiful. Go after a good spring rain for some nice falls! First mile or so of hike is very easy, almost boring. Once you cross the creek, it starts to get better with views.

Especially after rain this is gorgeous!

An amazing hike! I enjoyed the day immensely. Thank you to Steve Singleton and NWA Hiking Group for leading us.

Just visited today after several days of rain. It was muddy and a bit slippery on the rocks but worth the small trek to see the beautiful falls. It was 55 degrees and sunny so perfect hiking weather. Alot of people had the same idea.

Wonderful trail alongside the river....lots of rapids to enjoy! A must see! The downside....the long rough unpaved portion of road and a few run down dwellings on the way there. Wear hiking boots as lots of rocks to walk over and water to navigate around along the trail after heavy rains.

Great hike today! With all the rain this week the waterfalls were flowing. Made the creek crossings more adventurous but was a great hike! One of the harder hikes I’ve been on in the area offering some steeper inclines/declines. Beautiful hike and will be back!

There is more to this trail. Look for hidden trails and waterfalls.

Great hike. Nothing to strenuous and the views are worth it. Great to go in the rain.

Beautiful in the winter, wide well marked path, and nice falls with great climbing rocks. The road getting there was a pain. Rocky, narrow lane, with sliding gravel.

beautiful and short trail! great for if you only have a few hours. be sure to bring a truck because the parking for this trail in nonexistent.

We hiked this trail after hiking Centerpoint/Goat Trail. Not a very difficult hike and much shorter in distance than Centerpoint. Several spots away from the point to make camp. Very scenic and makes for excellent photography. As always, I recommend camping. I suggest doing it away from the point though as there are several people that hike it early in the morning.
