A Short hike off the gravel road follows a scenic creek to two water falls in 1/3 of a mile. Paige Falls is eight foot tall and Broadwater Hollow Falls is twenty-one feet tall. The creek itself has some small cascades that add to the enjoyment. The trail is not well defined. Simply follow the creek down hill on the east side and you can't miss the falls.

We have been here twice - once in the summer and during a drought (no water at all) and once after a good bit of rain in the spring. Definitely worth seeing! When dry, you can see the depth of the cascade of the boulders and rocks (huge drops) and many places to climb and scramble. It's a short trail, but can be slippery - just use caution. The road to get there is pretty rough, so 4WD and high clearance is recommended. As you approach, the water often runs across the road, and the trail is on the opposite side (right side of the road, left of the water flow), which means you will most likely get a little wet. So worth it. There's two places where the stream breaks to create Falls. The first one is pretty, but the second one is even better. Worth the trip!

Jiminy Cricket, that's one heck of a road! I found a place to park about a mile from where it's suggested one park and just walked it. I have been on lots rutted, rocky dirt roads in AR, and this one is one of the worst so far.

The hike is a breeze by comparison! It's an easy, short hike, and both falls are gorgeous. This could be part of a multi-hike day in the area if you really want to make good use of your time. I did this trail, Hideout Hollow, and Hemmed In Hollow, and it made for an excellent day of hiking with lots and lots of waterfalls.

The dirt road to the falls is a little scary, maybe not minivan approved. Had a flat tire on the way out. Probably best to have a SUV for this one. Water was not running this time of year, but the rock formations were cool. There is some more difficult hiking if you want to explore.

No water in the creek, must need to go after a good rain.

Great waterfalls, back to back. Really short trail, follows the creek, not sure how other(s) had trouble finding it.
A friend Seth James has run the upper falls (kayaked).

Trail head is not marked. No way to find it unless someone tells you where to look for it.

Beautiful scenery. The road is a little bumpy getting down to where the trail is but it's worth it.

Super easy. Very private trail. To much to take in on 1 trip.

Perfect place to spend Earth Day! With some help, my 2 and 5 year old navigated the trail as well. Beautiful!! Check out our adventure here... http://www.adventuresintheozarks.com/2014/04/paige-falls-broadwater-hollow-falls-trail.html

This was a short fun trail. Lots of boulders along the creek bed that provided added entertainment and obstacles. Short distance to the falls and fairly easy hiking. The road to the trail was pretty rough but I was able to get there in a standard sized car. Something a little higher off the ground would be recommended though.
