Hard to find trail head...but I liked that because it kept the traffic down....we didn’t make it to the end, but as pretty geology as I’ve been around in AR

A great quick escape just off the road, nice place to have lunch and hit the road for the next.

Whoever left the orange markers is a blessing. You da real mvp.

Worth the drive from NLR, AR. Absolutely beautiful. After any rain its freezing.

The overlooks are really beautiful. Only found one falls with a large pool underneath. The trail was pretty much nonexistent at some point and we didn’t see any ribbons or markers. It was still a fun hike with great views.

I took 2 kids (7 year olds) and a puppy. Trail is family and dog friendly. Love this trail. The overlooks on the way to the first waterfall are beautiful. The first waterfall is so simple to get to and is a great little swim spot. The second waterfall is a easy trail but you have to pay very close attention and follow the orange ribbons. Both waterfalls are pretty great when they are flowing.

I have been there twice and love it.

The owner appears to have no intentions of allowing people on her land anymore. Too bad. I just wish they could be upfront and not tell this tall tale about the mythical black bears to string people along season after season.

The two waterfalls are gorgeous following rains. The Redbud trees were blooming and that made the scenery spectacular , too.
The map does not show the route to the second waterfall. It is a bushwack to it, but someone has tied pink and orange ribbons along the way. We went in circles a bit, but I marked waypoints on my recording on 3/31/18 if you want to look at that map.

This trail is super scenic for being so short. Perfect trail for kids and dogs. Has one of the prettiest waterfalls I have seen.

Beautiful falls! Very easy hikes. Lots to see and explore!!

Great fall! Steep trail but easy to follow. Take the second trail from the culvert.

When you get to the trail, you will park on the side of the street with the sign marking the OHT. However, the trail actually starts ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROAD. There is another trail that starts in the same side as where you park, but that is not this trail. It’s well maintained and not terribly challenging. You will be up in the mountains, but there wasn’t a ton of stuff to see. Still I nice walk though.

Doesn’t exist

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.

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.

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.

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!

Wonderful, beautiful, scenic trail! Great for beginners and kid-friendly. Love this trail!

We did this hike Dec. 27th and it was great! it was pretty cold but we stayed warm by adventuring around the falls. the hike to get to the falls is pretty straight forward and easy. once we got to the falls we hiked/climbed around the rocky areas. We aren't totally sure what was part of the trail and what wasn't, but we had a great time making it up as we went.

Went with my children over thanksgiving break. The trail was easy enough for them, ages 6 & 8. It was difficult to find the trailhead as it is not well marked at all. It was dry when we went so the waterfall was small, but the rocks were fun to climb on.

Pretty place and I'm sure it's even better in the summer when you can take a dip in the pool.

Beautiful views to wake up to!

great trail after a good rain

cool lookout points, but waterfall was much smaller than I thought it'd be based on the pictures. I went in early October, wasn't much water coming down the creek so it was also more of a water trickle. would hike again though.

Great short hike. Trail kind of disappears after about 0.25 miles but not overgrown at all. Just follow what appears to be a large mostly dry creek bed with large boulders and u will find Main falls. Small falls en route too. Very pretty and easy hike.

10/13/17 — Trail closed due to a bear with a cub!

Very beautiful outlook. Only bad thing is is that the trail is closed currently due to a mother Black Bear and her cub living on the trail.
