Indian Creek trail is known for the most accidents in the Buffalo River trail system. To reach the falls you must scramble through a rocky creek, at times wading through water or you must travel on the sheer edge of a high bluff, or a combination of the above. The reward is in the scenery .

Beautiful! Worth the trip. We were able to make the drive down and up the trail with no problem.

Loved it. Very tranquil like a rain forest in Spring. Was difficult to climb up to get to The Eye of the Needle but worth it.

It doesn't get any better than this in AR! If the water is running, the Eye of the needle is worth the effort to climb up to.

A great experience with a group of hikers. It was very challenging and the climb was difficult for me but worth it. The eye of the Needle was amazing.

I loved this trail. It was relatively easy to follow since the water was low and we could stay in and around the creek bed for most of the hike. There are several spots to stop off and explore the rocks and crannies. There are at least 6 waterfalls along the way. Once you reach the waterfall at the end climb up the ropes on the right for an awesome view and the path to get back to the Eye of the Needle. For this hike I suggest bringing a snack and wearing comfortable, durable shoes as there are lots of slick spots and places you could twist an ankle. We stopped and explored a little and it took us roughly 5 hours to make the entire trip there and back.

Great trail, moderate in difficulty. There's a trail on either side if the creek so you can't get lost.

Not a difficult hike, dry weather impacts the creek so be aware of weather trends.
