Great hike! Incredible view at the end! This is a heavily trafficked trail, at least during the weekend when we went, so be ready for limited parking and lots of people and dogs. We had a great time, met lots of nice people, and pet lots of sweet pups. I highly recommend it!

Absolutely amazing hike, trail run, and views!!

It was totally worth the hike down and out to see this beautiful waterfall area. Lots of different wildflowers, a friendly rat snake, and tons of squirrels. I would be careful to take my kids until they are older.

Great trail with forest, rocks, stream and great views and Hawksbill Crag at the end was very cool. Recommend this trail. Seemed shorter and less strenuous hike than expected.

The view is amazing

It's listed as a moderate trail meaning most anyone could take it. My favorite thing about this trail is the multiple paths you could take that brings you to smaller waterfalls and caves. The sights are extremely beautiful and definitely worth the trip.

Awesome experience!!

A must-do! The views are breathtaking!

Prettiest view in Arkansas. The hike is very easy! Your car does the difficult job of getting you up the hill to the starting point of the trail!

Loved this hike, but not necessarily for the waterfall itself. The hike to the falls was pretty closed in and had a lot of pollen (pretty typical of this time of year). The falls were cool, but unfortunately there was no place to swim. However, it gets 4 stars because of the insane boulder field just past the falls. It is full of incredible bouldering and slab climbing. It may take some creativity to get to the tops and build anchors for toproping, but I could personally spent hours or days in that boulder field if I had know to bring a rope. It is mostly high quality rock (much like horseshoe), even if it is kind of dirty.

Lots of cool crags besides just Hawksbill. Also tons of trails, which could be good if you're in it for the adventure / exploration, but bad if want a quick in-and-out.
For the rock climbers out there, it has many great, solid walls, much like at horseshoe. This gave me several ideas for toprope routes (since I don't have the trad gear), but you may need to prussic your way back out.

Easy hiking, beautiful views. Well worth the drive.

this hike was the highlight of my trip to Arkansas/Missouri. When I came around the curve in the trail and saw the beautiful formation such emotion came over me. The beauty of what God created is so awesome!

This was a nice, short hike with several interesting features: a natural bridge, a pretty creek, interesting bluffs, a cave, and frequent benches providing great places to sit, have a snack, and enjoy God's creation. We were early in the season and during the week, so had the place to ourselves. Definitely worth your time.

So beautiful, especially once you get along the ridge there are huge boulders that are just sitting along the edge. Awesome scenery and gorgeous overlooks!

Gorgeous hike! Very rocky, make sure to wear safe shoes. All uphill going out so be prepared to get a good workout!

This turned out to be my favorite hike of our short trip. I'm generally a stickler for staying on the real trail, but we were in Jasper talking to a forest service ranger who told us that many people didn't know you could walk down to the stream early on and hike along it to the Glory Hole. So that's what we did. It was beautiful! There were lots of little cascades and interesting rocks along the way. Once you get to the Glory Hole itself, the stream, the bluffs, the undercut, the glory hole waterfall, and everything is just fantastic! Be sure to see it from above as well. Again, we had the place to ourselves, enjoyed our snacks, and thanked God for such a wonderful place.

I've been wanting to hike this for a long time and, while it was decent, it's not on my list to do again. The trail itself is nice, but nothing to write home about. When you get to a short, relatively steep descent across the little creek, you can go right which will go along the bluff or left (upstream) for a short period, then it will curve around parallel to the other trail and merge just before the Hawksbill Crag if you want an easier trail for some reason. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty nice: sticking out there all by itself. Take turns taking photos of each other. Standing on the crag itself, you don't even know your sticking out over the edge. It wasn't as big or as high as we thought it would be from the pictures we've seen. Again, it's worth doing, check it off your list, but I liked other trails in the area much better.

Great quick hike with many scenic views

Amazing hike to a very scenic overlook of the Arkansas Ozarks! Great photo opportunities at the end :)

Great short, quick hike... after a big rain, several waterfalls for 3/4 of the entire trail.

Excellent view of the majesty of the Arkansas Ozarks. Highly recommend to anyone visiting the state.

Awesome trail, make sure to take a right at the fork about 10 mins in. Just follow the trail and you will get there. coming out is all uphill but not to bad. Took us 40 mins to get out.

Had the entire place to ourselves which is hard to get on a weekend. Beautiful as always!!

Great little spot to explore. Lots of water in the creek which made for a very cool place.

The actual falls were beautiful. The hike was more like a road and it had a convoy of Polaris type vehicles on it. The water was running and We had the falls to ourselves.
