Great trail but a little overgrown.

YES!!! This hike is a must!!! We did this hike with our 4 sons ages 6-11. They did fine. Pack water and good hiking shoes. Check out the pictures! I would suggest stopping at the cemetery on you drive in. The Whitaker’s are buried there. Kinda cool. They lived in he 1830’s.

My 11yr old son and I did this hike on a Monday evening. There were only a couple of other people on the trail so not bad. We did not have cell service in this area. The natural bridges were really cool. The big one (the one you walk over at the beginning) is pretty amazing underneath. I rated this trail 3 stars because it did seem to be more overgrown on parts of the trail and I did feel like there could be better trail markings. We actually missed the trail just beyond one of the smaller natural bridges and took off on what looked like a trail (and obviously other people had thought the same) before it came to a pretty overgrown dead end. We retraced our steps and realized we had completely missed the actual trail which seemed pretty obvious when we got there because it had steps. The couple behind us had missed it too. Besides that little misstep, it was a nice short hike and took maybe 35-45 minutes total.

This was a neat, easy trail with cool features to explore. Will come back in the fall or spring when the creek is flowing, but it was fun even in the dry summer.

The view is like none other! Can’t wait to come back with more family members and friends!

loved the area, it would have been better in spring or fall but still beautiful. parking for this area is horrible, I rode a motorcycle there and it was difficult to get out of. a low car would also have trouble.

Such a beautiful view from the crag- definitely one of this most peaceful and amazing places I have ever been. There are no restrooms near the trail head, so make sure you use them before you head to the trail. The drive to the trail head is VERY steep and on a narrow dirt road, so be on the lookout for other cars on your way up & down. Fairly easy hike, with a few steeper hills. We went on a weekday morning at 9:00 and there was no one on the trail!

We found it easy. We went this last April.
Saw signs pointing us in the right direction. Good flow and only saw 2 people leaving as we were on our way down. The hike there is all downhill. So the hike back is intense but not ridiculously steep.. til the Jeep road. But it’s not too long! Worth it.

Awesome hike! A little rocky along the way but overall a good trail. Read the reviews and watch for markers as it looks like some may have gone off the path. Saw many kids and older adults hiking and also dogs. The views are so worth it when you get to the top. Make sure your phone or camera is ready!

I absolutely loved this trail. The view is absolutely spectacular and worth the short hike it takes to get there.

I would advise you to wear hiking boots, though. The entire trail is loose/upright rocks that’ll surely trip you up.

Also, keep a close eye out for little orange triangles, they indicate the main trail and keep you on track. There are plenty of little side trails people have created that can confuse you when you get closer to the cliff.

Should be the 8th wonder of the world!

Amazing trail! Surprisingly we didn’t get lost and we thought we would.. just make sure you follow the markers on the trees. It’s a really steep hill going down at first and of course really steep going back up but when you get to the top it is AWESOME!

Trail is steep going in and includes switchbacks. However, not too bad when you get past that. Beautiful vista point, and definitely one of the best/coolest pictures you'll ever take of yourself on that lookout point.

The only advice I have is to make sure and follow the orange triangles especially on the way back. Also use the bathroom in the town nearby because there are none by the trailhead. Overall, amazing hike and incredible view!! Loved how smooth the trail was! Definitely would recommend checking it out.

The views were awesome! We went during the week and saw very little traffic.

More of a 4-wheeler trail...beautiful hollow with the falls

One of my new favorites...great formations...hardwood forest...well maintained trail

This was a trail recommended to us for the hike and views. We took the hike and were blown away by the views. Absolutely beautiful and peaceful. We went On a Saturday just before noon. There were not as many hikers as other reviews said. Highly recommend this hike. It’s a must see at the end of the trail.

I took my three nephews and niece on this hike (ages 3-11). They ranked it the best hike ever! They loved getting to climb on the rocks and explore the little caves. I was thinking about all the poison ivy, ticks, and snakes ;) The trail was narrow and there was several trails with no signs which way was the loop so I’m not sure we saw the whole thing. Overall enjoyed it but next time will come back after a freeze in the winter.

A little disappointing. There was hardly any water in the creeks so it wasn’t very impressive. It’s was neat just not as cool as I thought it would be. It’s super short and easy so I guess it’s worth a look.

Great little trail. Super easy and relaxing. Nice view at the end.

Great overlooks of the river and scenic region. A must-see in Arkansas for hikers.

Lots of great smells, wildlife, and varied terrain throughout this hike. Would definitely recommend and do again.

Amazing viewpoint of the crag! Prepare to encounter a lot of people, as this is one of the most(if not THE most) popular trails in all of the Ozarks. About 40-45 minutes to the crag. Would be a good hike for kids because there isn’t a whole lot of elevation change. One of the best hikes in the area for sure!

The glory hole itself is pretty cool, but there are WAY better trails around this area. One of the last ones I would recommend. Hit this one up last. Easy hike, but nothing incredible.

Awesome hike and view! We couldn't find bathrooms or portapotties of any sort, so you might want to prepare for that if you don't have any luck either.

Beautiful place and a slight challenging hike. Would recommend and hike again.

Great hike! If you are driving from the southern region of Ozark the drive up is a bit scary (desolate dirt road for 10 miles). Other then that I had a great time!

Awesome scenery!
