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!

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.
