Went 7-8am on a weekday and was the only one there. The blue hole trail at the bridge is more desolate and unkept, would only recommend if you wanted to explore or exercise.

Great trail. I enjoyed it. Total trail is 5 miles if you go to the Grotto. I think it's worth it to get to see! Nice trail that is marked well. Loved the markers showing how far you have gone.

I loved this trail. There are lots of people on it all the time. So, if you like a less traveled trail this is not for you. Also, when you come back it's all uphill. The waterfall is very pretty. A great short trail to see a beautiful water fall.

My daughter and I went on this trail. I love the first half of it but was disappointed once we got into the more wooded section of it. The trails were overgrown and poison ivy was everywhere. There was no way to avoid it at all. You do check in and out at the visitor center for this trail.

Favorite hike in Arkansas, so far.

It shows on the map that it makes a loops,it would probably had been an easier way out, but we didnt see the other way out so we just backtracked, its very rocky ,big boulders ,climbing back the same way we went down was ok , but for the very young and elders its a challenge,
