Well marked. Natural Bridge. Small waterfall if there has been rain. Caves. Lots of rocks for kids to climb and explore. Very gradual elevation changes (unlike Smokey Mts). Several creek crossings and place to “rock hop,” so not just another meandering trail through the woods. IMO this is the best trail at Petit Jean State Park. We hike it every time we come camping here. I highly recommended everyone try this trail. Both young and old can walk this 4.5 miles if they just take it slow and enjoy themselves.

Outstanding trail! I did this one earlier this month with Memphis Outdoor Adventures. I would definitely do it again!

The trailhead sign says 4 hours. We got out in 4 minutes under that, even with the side trip to the grotto falls and a lunch break, so I would say the time estimate is spot on.

Great trail. Lots of elevation change so be prepared. There’s a geocaching place a bit off the trail. I recommend taking your time to explore and climb rocks around the trail, especially the natural bridge! Very fun and several scene changes from rocks to woods which kept things interesting. Well marked and I appreciate the mile and half mile signs.

Enjoyed the hike, packed a lunch and ate at the Grotto.

Pretty hike and well marked. The natural bridge was beautiful and the grotto was worth the extra half mile there and back. All in all I would say it’s worth spending a few hours there! There are a lot of stream crossings so be prepared for that. My only ONLY complaint is how everyone pronounces the name!! For those thinking it pronounced like the French, you would be wrong! Even though it’s named after a French women and the nick name is French, everyone says “petty jeen” what the heck?! :)

One of the very best hikes in central Arkansas. With a natural bridge, grotto and waterfall, and beautiful hardwood forest with rock bluffs and small caves!

We hiked after a rain so it was a little more challenging but the beauty surpasses the challenges! So worth it!

Very beautiful. A lot of places where you will need to slide down some rocks to get to the trail. Must see the Grotto!

Hiked this for Thanksgiving. Most of the leaves had turned, but still some good leaf color on the trail. Lots to see, very diverse landscape.

Really beautiful hike with great things to explore. No overlooks, but satisfying and long enough to tire you out.

Great trail! So pretty even with no water running or falling. 4.2 miles. If you can only do a portion of the trip, take the loop to the right because that is where the hollows are. At this time of the year most of the leaves have turned except the oaks and they are still yellow this weekend.

We hiked this trail today with a group, 4 adults and 4 kids between the ages 6 and 10. We finished in 3 hours and 33 minutes because there is so much to see. It was so fantastic, a beautiful view at every bend in the trail. A must do if you have the opportunity!

Great opportunity to hike with friends a trail I enjoyed as a child. Fall colors were great - even with an overcast sky the leaves were beautiful. Started early and made the loop in time for lunch. As I recalled, there are many areas to explore near the trail. The grotto was dry but colors made up for it. The natural bridge is impressive.

Went in autumn, and even though it was very dry and the grotto has no waterfall, the color of the leaves and fun rocky outcroppings made me glad I walked the miles. I can’t wait to see it in its glory in early spring!

You must stop and see the grotto.

Well maintained trail that has a natural bridge and a waterfall. I’ll definitely go back when the water is flowing good.

My favorite trail in Arkansas so far. A very interesting trail up,down and through the hollows. I will go back after the leaves have fallen.

Great trail and beautiful scenery even though I went during a drought. I'm sure it would be much more enjoyable when the small creek is flowing.

We hike this trail several times a year and it's been one of our favorites since the first time. Nice, varied terrain and it's also a decent summer hike as parts of it is in the shade.

Great trail. I enjoyed it. Total trail is 5 miles if you go to the Grotto. I think it's worth it to get to see! Nice trail that is marked well. Loved the markers showing how far you have gone.

Great hike, beautiful views. The natural bridge is stunning and the Grotto is very special. Highly recommended, you can go either way as it is a loop.
