Beautiful walk along the bluffs of the White River.

Out of the way on dirt roads ( but well maintained). Trail is a nice walk, wide and not at all difficult. Trail is pretty but views at overlook are gorgeous! Well worth it. We will be back.

Super easy and short trail. Great for the kids, and absolutely gorgeous views. It’s not the easiest drive to get here, but totally worth it. There are several bluffs to stop and have lunch on, and would def do it again.

Accidentally took a wrong trail and had to back track. Main trailhead is easy to find, we were just absent minded today. Hike is really easy, wide trail, small gravel, no bug rocks or inclines. Also incredibly quiet, which is a nice change from the popular trails. We didn't see anyone else on the trail. Overlook is lovely, reminded us of Hawksbill.

Easy hike for a gorgeous view. Signs on the road are helpful to get you to the parking space.

Went here yesterday with my wife and dogs and this was a bust. you have to drive for about 4 miles on rocky dirt roads. When you get there the trail isn't maintained at all. Nor is it clearly marked. It looks like an old road someone just said was a trail.

We parked at a gravel lot and started walking. As we went up it we had to dodge and climb various obstacles such as mud pits, multiple fallen trees, and lots of old barb wire. We got to a point I thought was a trail, but turned out not to be at all.

Don't waste your time with this "trail". We finally had enough and turned back.

One of my favorite trails in Arkansas. I've never seen another person on it in all the times I've been there. It's short and very easy with a great Arkansas view of one the prettiest rivers around. Highly recommend (but only to certain people. It's nice keeping it a secret so it stays pretty.)

Easy and short with a beautiful view. More of a walk than a hike. Do NOT use gps directions to get there.

great view point and you will probably see bald eagles in the winter.

This was the perfect hike for the family. Short and sweet, amazing views. My kiddos couldn't have been happier. Wish we would have looked in to how to get to the falls from there. A dip in the river would have been a nice way to wrap up the hike

Very pretty overlook in the Spring. Great bluff views and river scenery. Short and easy hike. Follow driving directions from Arkansas Game and Fish Commission to find trailhead. Apple maps sent us on a wild ride.

Nice day to hike this easy, beautiful trail. It was cloudy and sprinkling the day we hiked it. Trail is flat and wide. There is a very nice waterfall along the trail and was not difficult to bushwhack down to it. There was a nice high rock ledge at the end of the trail overlooking a big bend in the King River. I would recommend this trail.

Easy hike with multiple beautiful views of the Kings River. There is also another trail on the backside of the parking area that leads down to a waterfall.
