This waterfall was really pretty! Several waterfalls to see. Note: This is not a dirt road, it is a gravel road. There is a difference. That said, I did get a flat tire here, so watch out for sharp rocks. The four stars is for the people who thought it would be okay to stop and take baths here. If I'm driving way out of the way to see waterfalls, I don't want to see you taking a bath right where I'm trying to get pictures of. Be more considerate.

You do have a drive up a 6 mile dirt road. There are two falls along this road. Both are pretty. One is a very popular swimming hole and then there is this one. Less popular that the other waterfall this one is pretty. Pretty small but still neat.

Really cool water and rock features! There is a 6 mile gravel road to get to it so not something you want to do in a low car or in the rain but it was pretty! Bring water shoes.

Beautiful area. Had never been to Richland creek wilderness. Loved the drive along the dirt road. Kind of scary in places. We kept trying to find Keefe falls. Went to wrong trail. Finally found it and it was worth it. Saw a timber rattlesnake. Apparently rare but beautiful. Also saw falling water falls. Water was very swollen when we went a month or so ago. Had a lot of fun experiencing this beautiful place. There seem to be lots of trials in this area. I think you would have to visit this area a lot to be able to experience all of what it offers

First visit and I was not disappointed. Pictures do not do this place justice. Highly recommend checking it out. Very easy to find and right off the road plus it's on same road as Falling Waters and that one is spectacular.

Great trail! Super easy to complete! If you cross the river and follow the horse trail it’ll take you to Fuzzy Butt Falls!

This is very easy to get to water feature. Absolutely beautiful! Lots of short trails to get to different areas of the creek. We had lunch right by the water.

Wow wow wow gorgeous, and a super short steep hill scramble to get to. Extremely, dramatically picturesque. The six fingers are very visible! Tiny parking pull-off on the road is very easy to miss. Falls are on the left, (when driving along downstream), a few moments after crossing a slab in the car. If water is up a bit on the falls then you cant walk across the rocks and creek to get to Fuzzybutt Falls on other side, (a bit downstream). There is another way in to the Fbutt slot canyon falls, but then it’s a much longer walk. Enjoy!

It’s an easy hike to this fall, and then cross over if water isn’t too high to pick up a trail that literally feels like a whole older world: a dark black box canyon with Fuzzybutt Falls.

Just beautiful, it’s is a small hike downhill to get to the falls themselves. Beautiful!! If you follow to the trail on the other side, it will take you to Fuzzy Butt falls.

you don't have to walk a trail to see 2 awesome and unique waterfalls that roadside about a mile part. if you decide to do the trails don't make the same mistake others have made but not doing any research before going. i went n a beautiful morning this pass January and i knew the falls would be good because arkansas had a good amount of rain in December. this waterfall has some awesome rock formations and the creek was so beautiful even during the winter. if you decide to drive to them be ready to drive about 4 to 6 miles on a dirt. it wasn't bad but you may want to take it slow. you'll know you are close to falling water falls after you pass the horse camp. after view that fall keep an eye open because there is a nice spot to view the creek about half way to six finger falls. i had these falls all to myself on a crisp morning and there beauty made me forget it was 29 degrees out. i'm so glad i went when i did to see them in the winter time was a really treat.

Easy to find right off the side of the road. Water was flowing really well but I’d imagine it was only due to recent weather.

Beautiful! Walked across the creek and downstream to a small trail on the other side...leads to a beautiful grotto and Fuzzybutt Falls. No water flowing now but bet it’s beautiful in the spring!

This is a very pretty area, literally right next to the road. It's where we took my profile pic! What is curious to me is why the is no mention of Fuzzy Butt Falls, just beyond this area?? That is a special site imho!
