Very tough hike but amazing! Best hike to date

A stunning backpack into some caves. Rugged terrain, some bushwhacking at the second half of the trail.

One of my favorite trails in AR. I went for the second time last week, and the views the whole way to the falls were beautiful. I am definitely going back again soon.

Beautiful Hike. Be prepared to get wet when crossing the creek and yes its cold. We went during the summer so there was overgrowth, and the trail seemed to fade away in certain spots, but sooner or later we ended up back on it. We just stayed close to the creek. It also was a wet week so it was a bit slippery and had areas where minor landslides occured.

Campground was perfect. Beautiful creek just below. Traveled with 2 adults and a dog. Dog loved it, but was ready to rest after the waterfall. As always, be careful of wildlife, we encountered a copperhead on the trail.

Our original plan was to hike to Twin Falls, but the second creek was moving just a little too high and fast for us, so we hope to visit again during a drier/colder time. This trip was a bit more than we expected, but definitely worth it and we look forward to our next visit.

So beautiful! So untouched. Difficult, but every bit worth the trek. What an adventure!

awesome trail! not marked. once you come to a large campsite where Richland creek meets a dry creek bed, cross here. follow the creek bed quarter mile to twin falls. our first attempt landed us at Richland falls. the trail was a heinous mud slide. very dangerous. we walked around on our way back. overall great hike. I love this area, it's going to provide years of exploration.

awesome two day hike! accidentally found richland falls first. when reaching the huge camp site where richland creek meets a dry creek bed , cross richland creek. a trail follows the creek bed .25 miles to twin falls. super fun trail! this area will provide years or exploration.

Beautiful all the way. And the waterfall at the end is just amazing. It’s a bit tricky crossing Falling Water Creek to get on the trail when the water is up...we trekked up stream til we found a way across (almost a mile). Lots to see around there—we’ll be back!

Great hike! Trail was very poorly marker. I would allow at least 3 hours down and back if you don't stop. So many beautiful places to stop and look around, have a picnic or explore. Loved it. We will return.

I gave this trail a 5 star rating due to the absolute beauty of the area, the unmaintained natural look and the lack of people. for a beautiful video of this trail and the falls go here . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuozGRgvezQ&t=9s
This trail is for more hard core hikers as the trail is not marked and if you do not take a map and compass you will get lost and not find twin falls. just a tip to get to twin falls . . . when you reach the large campsite at the creeks edge you will then need to cross the creek go up and over the mountain and when you reach the creek follow it upstream till you come to the falls. (there are two identical creeks running parallel to each other separated by a mountain)
otherwise if you continue to follow the creek you started on you will come to Richland creek falls (the wide falls).
if you come to these falls first then cross the creek go up and over the mountain and follow that creek UP STREAM till you run into the falls.

Only gave this trail 3 stars because there are no markers on the trees, the trailhead was a little tricky to find, not very well maintained (lots of trees down), and all trails says this trail is 4.4 - ohhh, no it is not!! Ha - to get to the first set of falls and back took about 6 miles. Never actually found the twins... maybe they were up past the first long set of falls but the trail goes dead at this point & didn't want to be stuck out here in the dark w lack of markings. Still, gorgeous falls and a pretty awesome hike (minus the horseflies on Labor Day & snakes).

If someone has a suggestion or tips for getting to the twins, let me know

Hands down, the best falls. A tiny bit of a scramble to get back out of the valley if coming from the cemetery route and you will be getting wet coming from the campground trail, but 100% worth the effort to see those gorgeous falls! We have visited in late fall and very early spring and would like to go back once the trees have buds in mid spring.

Two river crossings on the trail, the second we were not able to stay dry. The falls were worth every mile

Visited today only to find the trail was closed today due to a wildfire. No indication of how long it will be closed for. I'll reassess the rating when I actually get to hike this trail.

Go all the way toward the end of the campsite, in between two camps there is a little path going down to the creek. After the crossing, there should be a sign pointing to the falls. I would take the lesser worn trail going UP the hill rather than going straight which runs along the river. After that, trail isn't that bad at all.
