Great trail for beginners. Lots of wonderful memories here as my family brought us here many times when we were young. Now, I take my children and make new memories! Beautiful scenery...

This is a fairly easy trail that starts off by heading down several flights of stairs just as you start into the woods. Once you get to the bottom of the stairs the trail levels out and you have a nice view of the Arkansas river and the Ozark lock and dam. Then you make your way back up to the parking lot with a fairly steep ascent. Once at the top its an easy level walk back to the trailhead. My kids, 5 & 8, hiked this one easily and enjoyed seeing so many squirrels and one small snake.
