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.

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.

Beautiful hike in a secluded area!! Once we finally found our way to the trail, we loved every minute of it. There are amazing rock structures, a crystal clear creek, lots of pine trees and gorgeous views. We were not disappointed! The trail itself was not very difficult but it was tough to locate the trailhead. Once you get to the parking area described by others, you will walk down what looks like an atv trail and look for the trail to go off to the right (up a hill). We missed it but eventually found our way. If we had been looking at the app, we probably wouldn’t have missed it. The trail is not marked well at all but occasionally you will see blue tape tied to trees showing the general direction.

We went yesterday and we still love it!! Beautiful every time!!

Fun and easy hike. One of the best views in Arkansas

We drove from Springfield, Missouri just to find THE tree!! It was SO worth the drive.

Absolutely LOVE this trail! I've taken my kids many times for a quick day hike. Such a beautiful trail and the lookout is so amazing! My go-to place when needing some mountain therapy!!

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

This was such an amazing hike. Very popular and busy, but it was worth taking a lunch and just enjoying the views

Insane views

More difficult than you would expect. Did it during winter and the snow made it all the better

Amazing views and beautiful colors in the fall.

Awesome place, a must see if in Arkansas! Great views, kinda crowded even in the winter.

Went with my wife it was great the way up lol now that was fun.

Quiet, secluded, and beautiful. Very well marked and maintained in the Winter. Don't miss the detour to the view at Spy Rock, one of the prettiest around. If you're going to park near the trailhead be sure to bring $3 and a pen to fill out your day use tag and envelope.

Beautiful hike! Falls were frozen this January due to extremely cold temps. Parking is limited and there is a large drop off from the road to the parking area. Small cars beware!

Pretty easy hike with some impressive views at the end! Relative to other hikes around the area, it is a lot more crowded. We will be coming back to this one!

A steep hike down with not much to look at, but the bottom makes it worth it! We kept exploring further down the creek, and there is so much to see down there as well, if you have a few extra minutes. Then, of course, there is a steep, but not too long, hike back up to your car. The worst part of the hike was the parking! Unless you have a pick-up truck or a Jeep you will have some difficulty getting in/out of the side of the road.
