Take Arkansas Highway 43 south from Harrison, Arkansas to Compton, Arkansas. At Compton, look for the Buffalo National River sign and turn south onto a gravel county road. Continue on the county road and follow the signs to the Compton Trailhead.

Really nice trail but like everyone said it is not for the casual hiker. It will kick your butt coming back up the traverse. Leaves are just starting to turn soo 2 weeks from now it should really be nice. Planning on heading back in early November foe some cooler temps.

Beautiful scenery and an amazing waterfall but wasn't flowing very strong. Would recommend going after a rainfall to get the full effect of the waterfall. The hike out is very difficult, all steep uphill. Definitely worth the hike.

Great trail with some amazing views along the way with a beautiful waterfall at the end. The hike back out is quite taxing with significant climb up out. Great hike! ❤️❤️ From Compton Trailhead it is ~5 miles round trip and took us 3.5 hours.

The challenge is worth it! Just know that unless there's been a recent, heavy rain, it probably won't be flowing.

Awesome hike! It's very challenging, especially on the way back up!
