Hideout Hollow Falls trail is a short two mile out and back trail through second growth timber leading to a high bluff that eventually winds its way to the top of a 37 ft. tall waterfall. The wet weather creek has a couple small water falls just up stream from the main fall. The best season to visit is from September through April, during the rainy season, even though it is open year round. There is a way down the bluff to the base of the fall; but you need to discover it yourself. It is very dangerous. The bluff views and large rock formations make it worth the trip even when the water is not running. Canoeing the Buffalo River and numerous other hikes are in the area. One could spend two weeks in the region exploring.

This trail is short and sweet, with lots of highlights! The bluff view is amazing for such a short and easy trail. The trail takes you to the top of the fall, but I would try to go down under the fall if you can! People have already made it possible- just be careful climbing down; it's worth it! Will be back for sure!

This was a beautiful trail we took with our small children on Mothers Day. The waterfalls and views were gorgeous! It would of been easy but carrying two small children on and off throughout the hike made it a little harder. And watch small children near the overlook, it's beautiful but very steep!

This is a really fun, easy trail with a great waterfall at the end. I would do this as an additional hike if you're out and about in the Erbie area.

It's pretty easy to get down to the base of the waterfall, but do be warned that the rocks down around the waterfall are all quite slippery. If you're careful, it's worth getting down there, as the hollow behind the falls is really impressive.

Easy hike. Trail contains many round sandstone rocks,don't roll an ankle. Elevation change wasn't abrupt. Beautiful views from the bluffine. 2 waterfalls to see at trails end. A few people on the trail but not enough to be annoying. Parking at trail head was minimal.
