Paved Trail, wheelchair accesible, scenic overlooking the St. Francis shut-ins oon the river. a This is a very easy trail. It is paved and has benches located along the way if you need to rest.

Great hike - first part is paved - then there are two unpaved trails - make sure you do both. I went down to the river for some pictures - wasn't very hard to find a way down if you don't mind a little rock climbing.

Great little hike. Easy well paved wheelchair friendly trail. Once at the overlook do not forget to do the two unpaved trails leading off the left and right. Beautiful views of the St Francis River rapids.

Path is paved to lookout. Amazing area. We started at parking lot connected to Turkey Creek and then Silver Mines and back. Was a little over 10 miles and was an absolute blast. Will def. return

This is one of my favorite hikes locally. The trail itself is about a two mile loop. It is paved; a slight decline all the way to the river, a slight incline on your way back to the parking lot. It has a nice lookout deck at Cat's Paw (the end of the paved trail) that overlooks the St. Francis River. You can continue to follow the trail after the pavement ends, if you wish. Overall, it is a great place to get outdoors!

My family enjoyed this today. paved walk is super east, stroller/wheelchair friendly. We went down the unpaved trail to the water right at cats paw, with a 1yr old in a carry pack on my back. we took it easy and made it down just fine enjoyed the cool water. saw a copper head on the paved trail headed back to car. gave him his space and we all went on our way. overall enjoyed it.
