Great hike if you like to scramble. Lots of cool boulders and places to climb.

old roads but its very cool place to explore

Great for sightseeing, and both children and my MIL with double knee replacements did well on it. It is pretty crowded on busy weekends.

One of the most beautiful trails I've been on. Took the trail less traveled, went to the end of the bluff, climbed down to the river, hiked the river on Old River Trail, climbed out to the homestead on Sneeds Creak trail, and made it back up. Was total about 10-10.5 miles.

We did a snow & ice hike today. It was amazing! If you'd like to see our video about this hike, check out our YouTube channel "Will Hike For Food". It's an easy trail with amazing views.

the climbs on this TRAIL is enough to make it moderate, the map given on this site is kinda incomplete, this trail actually goes all the way to HICKORY RIDGE rd or something like that and connects with the LAKE OUACHITA VISTA TRAIL, could have been good to know for future planning, the CAMPGROUND was closed when I went due to the government shutdown I'm sure, but the CAMPGROUND was in really good shape and plan on making a stop thru there sometime in the summer, the trail was nice and challenging and the forest made for a quite walk in the woods

One of the best waterfalls in Arkansas. Spectacular when the water is flowing!! Compton’s Double falls is amazing, however there are many other waterfalls to see on this hike including Amber Falls, Owl Falls and many other unnamed waterfalls.

Love this place!! So many different routes. I use this walk a ton since it is by my home and such beautiful scenery. Pet friendly and always clean and well kept areas. Beautiful water falls throughout.

I did the loop starting at Lake Ann TH, Pinyon, SBAT, Taylor Homestead, Back 40, Pinyon... A nice walk in the woods...!!

Small but nice. Nice people and beautiful scenery to photograph.

Very easy trail. Short & sweet. Cute waterfall

Hike was well worth it not for the waterfall but the rock formation that is at the very end. We went to the waterfall during flooding and excess rain to see a little waterfall a top a very large rock wall covered with ages of erosion that was well worth it. Make sure you are in good physical shape and travel together as the the trail is steep and extremely rugged and should only be embarked on if you hike frequently and have the correct gear, hike took about 4 hours with at least 3 camps that people will hang out at up and down that can be used as checkpoints, If you are extremely fit to where you can hike 13 miles I recommend taking the trail from the waterfall to the buffalo river as the scenery is beautiful combined with the utter isolation you’ll find yourself in as you have to drive 3 miles of dirt road to get to the trailhead

There is an amazing old cabin on this trail. The cabin was built in 1882.

It's a nice enough trail, with plenty of great views of the lake, but it also basically runs through several backyards (or at least close enough to the houses that you feel like you're in their backyard) and a few of them make it apparent that your presence isn't necessarily appreciated. Though, that was just my takeaway, so your mileage may vary on how worthwhile the trail is.

The trail definitely has some great views of the lake. Unfortunately, it also runs through what appears to be someone's cow pasture. Which is something that very much detracts away from the overall experience. Especially when there happen to be a whole flock of cows right up on the trail.

Really fun trail. My Garmin clocked the distance at 5.4 miles, not 3.4 as advertised.

Easy short hike with a big payoff
Be sure to go after a good rain.
Trail head is Almost exactly parallel to the state park entrance sign on Fayetteville end.... on opposite side of highway. Park in the lot stay on lot side and walk 100y back towards park. It will be on your left . Follow trail left until a clearing on right . Turn R there. If you get to a creek and bluffs. Turn around.
Trek poles and waterproof boots recommended!
Have fun !

I would recommend this trail, plenty of water along the trail and several good swimming holes. There was multiple water crossings so be prepared for that.

Short but sweet. Pretty much in my backyard. Glad people have been working on the trails recently.

Super awesome. Gorgeous. Exciting. Dream like.

Good workout first .75 miles, not very scenic in winter

Amazing trail! Did it in about 2.5 days which was a perfect pace January 14th-16th. Eagle rock loop has it all and offers a beautiful variety of scenery ranging from mountainous views to valleys covered in tall pines. Be prepared for the water crossings! Fortunately there were only around 4 big river crossings that required actually getting your feet and legs wet. I would say starting at little Missouri trail head was a good going counter clockwise. Especially if you want to get some of your major elevation gain out of the way and with only 7 miles to the vista, which makes a great first nights camp with its gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains. If you get the chance, do this trail!!

Fabulous views for a relatively short hike

One of my favorites. Easy, short hike in to the falls. Beautiful views. Gets pretty rocky and uneven close to the falls. The hike out is mostly uphill.

It was a beautiful hike with the fall foliage at or near its peak. Being that this was our first hike, we feel like we did well for our age. I would recommend hiking poles for the descent going down the step grade. Our knees differently felt the effects of the steep grade. We brought a lunch and blanket for a bite to eat and a break at the base of falls. Don’t expect much water coming over the falls. Even with the rain a few days earlier, there wasn’t much water running. Still a beautiful view with the shear limestone walls rising out of the tranquil valley.

Nice trail for hiking and photography! Many things to see along the way
