As everyone said. The waterfall is gorgeous. The stairs back up are brutal.

The cave was super relaxing. You can access this trail from the boy scout loop

We went on a hike here yesterday and it was wonderful. If you do the Rockefeller by itself, then it's an 8 miler. Adding the seven hollow trail is what makes it over 14 miles. During a 90° day, it's tough but well worth it, alot of shade. The sites were spectacular. If you dont wanna do a hike that long, you don't have to. This trail has 5-6 trails within it that range from 1-4 miles. Definitely a hidden gem between 2 national parks and worth the trip!

Great view of waterfall! The walk down is easy. However, on the trip back up the last part will get your heart pumping!

Easy short trail that wound around rock formations that were really neat.

I can’t begin to tell you how beautiful this place is! Definitely worth the trip. However, if you want get the full effect, go after the leaves have fallen. The canyons are absolutely stunning! You can go now during the summer and it’s still beautiful. But, I cannot wait for fall and winter months to go back!! Also, I didn’t know about the Cedar Falls just right up the road a bit. Go there and there is also big caves to explore in that area. I went to see them. It’s just a fantastic state park!

Great Trail! We did the grotto as well. The kids loved it. I'd say it is kid friendly. We stopped at the Natural bridge and had lunch on top.

Easy trail. Look up at the ceiling of the cave when you get there.

Love this trail! Waterfalls and trail is along the creek. We took 4 small children and they enjoyed it. Kid friendly.

very easy and quick trail. A must see if you go to Petit jean mountain.

My husband and I are in our mid-60’s and enjoyed this trail immensely. It was in the 90’s but we brought lots of fluids. Many people. We will hike this trail again. Took about 2 hours for 2.5 mile trek taking our time.

Short trail but great climbing and exploring area

Pictoglyphs are tough to find- look for red areas around the middle to left side of the cave

Awesome trail, beautiful forested trail along Creek. , lots of big rocks and spectacular waterfall in natural rock amphitheater. Definitely worth the hike and mid-May was perfect time to see the falls at their best.

it was good going down the trail through the lodge. but coming up it almost killed me.

A great hike with amazing scenery

Harder trial, beautiful!

I couldn’t really see any of the Indian writings, but the trial was very nice.

It was a very busy trial, try to avoid during the weekends. Had a beautiful waterfall though!

In my opinion, this is the most beautiful trail in the park. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the views!

Getting to the falls is a beautiful stroll. Hanging out among the falls and trees are magical and a great green rest. The last 500 ft back up at the end of the trail is the hardest part.

Well marked. Natural Bridge. Small waterfall if there has been rain. Caves. Lots of rocks for kids to climb and explore. Very gradual elevation changes (unlike Smokey Mts). Several creek crossings and place to “rock hop,” so not just another meandering trail through the woods. IMO this is the best trail at Petit Jean State Park. We hike it every time we come camping here. I highly recommended everyone try this trail. Both young and old can walk this 4.5 miles if they just take it slow and enjoy themselves.

Outstanding trail! I did this one earlier this month with Memphis Outdoor Adventures. I would definitely do it again!

The trailhead sign says 4 hours. We got out in 4 minutes under that, even with the side trip to the grotto falls and a lunch break, so I would say the time estimate is spot on.

Great trail! Definitely worth the hike.

Lots of streams flowing now and weather was perfect. A cool trail!

I really love this trail. Traveling from Hot Springs, it is close enough to make a full day out of it! I've completed this trail once, and I am going back Wednesday to do this trail plus some more! Also, this definitely is closer to 13 miles instead of the 8 stated above. The steepest parts are around the 4-5 mile marks!

Excellent trail. The 95 ft waterfall puts an exclamation point on the hike.

Very scenic!

The way back up is pretty tough but the view is well worth it!
