This trail takes you pass several nice rock formations and cedar glades on your way to a bluff overlooking the Lee Creek Valley. The Trail ends at a unique CCC shelter or you can retrace your steps back to the trail head.

great views and great hike. i highly recommend going during the off season unless you don't mind lots of people, very busy place.

Liked it a lot but as a fairly new hiker of about 5 months this is the busiest trail I've ever been on. Overlook is beautiful!

Great trail! I hiked it with my 11 year old brother and he made it so I'd say it's fairly easy. I started from the bottom/lowest part of the trail where there are some pretty awesome rock formations but the climb up is pretty steep. It's not treacherous just steep. Very pretty in the winter as you can see all across the valley from just this point but not so well in summer time. But the yellow rock area is gorgeous in the summer. Great trail and is wide, well kept, and easy enough for most beginners and great for casual day hikes. Arkansas at its best!

Starts off amazing and just gets better! This trail is *very* well-traveled, and fairly easy, if a bit steep at the beginning. We had just hiked 6 miles on the Fossil Flats trails, and decided to "cheat" a bit by not hiking the loop - just out to the big overlook and back (ends up being about 2 miles this way). Will definitely return to hike the entire trail soon.
