Lost Valley Campground is located near Ponca, southwest of Harrison, Arkansas. The trail is accessible year-round. Best done in late fall or early spring for a more spectacular look at the water falls. Trail is very scenic, rated easy Note this area is heavily visited on the weekends. Best visited during the week if you want a little solitude. Trail ranges from crushed rock to natural services. The most scenic area of the trail is more demanding but worth it.

Terrific, kid-friendly trail in one of the most beautiful areas Arkansas. Lots of really cool rock formations, and Eden Falls cave, at the end of the trail, has a waterfall inside the cave. I have hiked this trail more times than I can count over the past 30 years.

Beautiful! Need to go back and see Eden Falls in the spring when the water is up!

The first part of the hike is pretty easy, but when you get to the Natural Bridge section and go through it and hike over all the large boulders, it gets a lot more fun. Then there is some climbing up and out of that section to get to the Eden Falls area.

Bring your ear buds and favorite music in case it is busy and noisy.

Beautiful trail with lots to see. Fun stairs and caves with little waterfalls. Beautiful drive from Fayetteville!

The features (Cob Cave & Natural Bridge) on this trail are amazing. This trail would be so much better minus the constant screaming of kids. It's still worth it.
