The trail in to the waterfall is all downhill, so the hike out is all uphill. The trail starts out as an old jeep trail and turns into a narrow path. The destination is the waterfall. The waterfall is unique in that the water has worn through the ledge and plummets through a round hole. The trail in to the water fall is all down hill, so the hike out is all up hill. The trail starts out as an old jeep trail and turns into a narrow path. The destination is the water fall. The water fallis unique in that the water has worn through the ledge and plummets through a round hole instead of over the ledge. Thus the name Glory Hole. Always best to hike in the spring or late fall when water is flowing. Well worth the hike. use extreme caution approaching the water fall from the top

It's beautiful! More small falls along creek. Walk back can be a bit much for small kids since it's uphill but definitely doable!

The hike to the falls are a challenge- steep both ways. The falls and cave (?) are so wonderful! The trailhead is a little difficult to catch- "GH" is spray painted on the road to demarcate it. Coming from Ponca, you'll know you've passed it (by just a lil) when you drive by the E barn. It will be in between the E barn and the church.

The water was steady flowing through out the whole trail. The Glory Hole was absolutely amazing! It's worth the trek down and back up! Bring some water and stay hydrated!

There are no trail markings and the parking is difficult, but the trail was great and the view from underneath the Glory Hole was totally worth the hike.
