A fun trail with beautiful scenery. Make sure to keep an eye for the trail to the overlook I missed it the first few times I went out there.

Absolutely gorgeous. Will definitely return. Muddy, at the moment. I might have slipped, fallen, and ended the walk looking like a mud monster. Also, the tick armies are out in full force. Prepare. Don’t be like me. ;)

Great hike! even for beginners or fat people like me! lol. It had rained earlier in the week so yes, we had to dodge some water but had a blast doing it. Best part for me was getting to spend time with my youngest.

Trail was well marked in blue and well maintained. 7 and 5 year old kids led the way. It was a bit wet in some spots, but no one got muddy. Lots to explore along the way. The whole family enjoyed it.

Not bad if you're in the area. If the water fall is running this trail goes up a star for sure. Short easy hike for just about anyone. I've done it several times and it can get muddy.

Wonderful trail. Creek was flooded due to lots of rain, but waterfalls were running and beautiful due to this! Remember bug spray for sure!!!!

only complaint was that it was overgrown and chigger and tick infested but a good spray will take care of that.

Several Waterfalls and Whirlpools (am & med) all along Lee Creek Trail especially after a good rain. Water is Sea Green like the Buffalo River.

Beautiful hike but not worth the all day effort of picking ticks off my dog. Between my husband, my dog and myself we probably picked 30 + ticks off. It’s absolutely ridiculous even for Arkansas.

Great hike, even the wild animals were nice. An owl gave me advice on on how many licks to get to the center of my Tootsie Pop. It was wrong, but at least he talked to me, unlike my family, who suck.

great walk easy for me and my dog. although the hikes in Lee Creek park are smaller they have allot to be seen. good hike overall markers could be better.

Took the wife out to this hidden jewel today. Great trail, well marked and maintained. Strenuous in places but not bad. A couple of other trails run off of this one. Great area.

Nice trail, lots of rock formations and bluffs to explore. The Lee Creek park is closed for maintenance (Dec 2017) and the gate is locked. We had to park outside the gate and walk down to the trailhead.

Crack in Rock is a really nice hiking trail that takes about an hour to explore. It is not difficult to navigate and there are some very interesting and scenic sights along the way, including the large crevasse that gives the trail its name. There are some small crags to look over, and the creek that runs along part of the route is very pretty in spots. I wore shorts on this trek and wound up with some rash on my ankles and legs, but no ticks or other critters, as some have mentioned are common. Overall, this is a very enjoyable trail to explore.

The trail is a well maintained and well marked trail. Nice waterfall in wet season. The entrance gate has been closed for months, but you are allowed to park at the gate and walk to the trail head about .25 mile down the road.

Went after it rained and there were several waterfalls, so pretty! Was well kept and trails were easy to follow. Easy, short hike with great scenery!

Went to it and the gate and trail was closed. Called the number and they couldn't tell me when it would open. Disappointing.
