Getting There

Please note: The Boy Scout reservation is generally off limits to the public beyond the parking lot at the trailhead - the falls are open to the public. To verify accessibility call Westark Area Council, B.S.A ph. 479-782-7244 Triple Falls (aka Twin Falls) at Boy Scout camp Orr, is a simple hike along the trail on the north side of the creek that heads west from the parking to the 48 ft. tall falls, arguably the most scenic in Arkansas with this ease of accessibility. It is recommended to have AWD for the road up to the trailhead as it is a steep grade and can pose problems for low-clearance 2 wheel drive vehicles. Drive carefully!

HikingGreat!

Let me say a couple things: 1) Do not fear the drive down. The sign at the top of the hill (near the canoe rental place) says that you may need 4WD. This may be true in snowy/icy conditions, but not necessarily in normal condition. Yes, the hill is steep, but it isn't true off roading. I drove my 2017 GMC Terrain, 4 cylinder engine, with AWD and made it back to the top with ease while it was raining hard. I actually made it up faster than going down. If you have a 2WD vehicle, just be smart, pick routes that keep your wheels connected with the ground, and you'll be good. If you don't trust your driving skills, don't swing it. But AWD drive vehicles will have no problem in wet conditions. 2WD vics may have issues if the gravel isn't packed down. 2) The trail is fantastic. nice and easy. you can view the bottom of the falls and then take a 1/4 mile hike to the top. The falls are beautiful. I recommend the trail. Heck, half the fun was doing the drive! Great picture opportunities. And you can just sit and listen to the sounds of the falls.

Beautuful falls with one of the easiest hikes. I would highly recommend a 4wd. I saw several 2wd struggle to get back up the hill. Im not sure if the Explorer made it out after multiple failed attempts. A car with 4 people even parked about half way down and walked (very long steep walk) in because it is so steep and rough.

There are several “no trespassing” and “private property” signs at the trailhead. We did not get to hike because we did not want to trespass if not allowed. Seems like a lot of people go anyways even though it says private property. A little confusing!

HikingGreat!

Clear trail. Quick hike. Hardly any water right now, but I expected that. Still worth checking out, especially if you're taking a little break between longer trails. As other reviews have stated, the road in is steep. I have a stock half ton truck and made it easily in 2wd. I think my Camaro could have made it if it had a couple more inches of ground clearance.

Stunning. It was so beautiful. Not much of a hike. More about the destination. The drive is beautiful, but tough. If you have all-wheel drive, bring it. My sedan struggled to make it make up the road.

HikingGreat!

The trail clearly says Twin Falls. That was all that was flowing today. Very short and easy hike. The trail to the top was short and narrow but easy to do. Not much to see or do up there. The road in and out was steep. About 13% grade in places. Road surface was packed well. City people haven’t been on mountain roads and call this road horrible. I wouldn’t take a sedan on it either. All wheel drive at the minimum. It was not bad at all.

The hike to the falls is very easy. However the road getting there is very rough and steep especially closer to the parking lot.

The Falls are really nice and worth the trip. However the road is a different story, there is a sign halfway down that says stop that your brakes cool down. Trust me you want to do this. the drive back up can be difficult the hill is steep in there is loose gravel hard to get traction

Visit today (took the SUV with 4wd) even though the falls weren’t running heavy, there was still water and it was just beautiful. We were alone and just took in the peace. Absolutely worth the drive with the right vehicle.

The road in is awful and truly wondered if the Falls were worth the ride in. It's a one visit trip just to see the water and not plan another visit.

Really really easy really beautiful hike. The drive is the worst. Don’t go after rain if you don’t have good tires. Road is 60-70 degrees and clay for like 2 miles on the side of a mountain. But the Treacherous drive is worth the easiest hike and pretties waterfall in all of Arkansas

The trail it’s self was very easy and accessible. HOWEVER, if you do not have 4 wheel drive you will get stuck!!! We did not head the signs and was stranded for hours in the wilderness before we could call a wrecker to pull us up the steep gravel road. Our front wheel drive midsized suv would not get traction on the gravel!

Easy, very short trail. The road to the trailhead is bumpy. There is a sign saying 4WD is recommended but it probably isn’t necessary.

OHV/Off-road drivingGreat!Muddy

Most of the hike is actually a steep drive to get to the trail head down a gravel road-very bumpy but honestly not too bad. 4WD preferred just in case. We weren't expecting much water flow during the summer but luckily it had rained the day before. Trail was very simple and pretty!

This is a very nice trail, and hiking to the top of the falls is a nice option! The road down to the trail head is steep and gravel, so 4WD or AWD is a must!

Nice easy trail with a great stream and waterfall. DO NOT ATTEMPT to go the trail unless you have and AWD or 4WD vehicle. Camp Orr road is very steep for 2.5 miles to the trail and has loose gravel. Any car can make it down but only AWD and 4WD will be able to make it up the steep hills.
