Great little trail with awesome views!

Great trail that weaves back and forth over a creek. Has tree cover, small bluffs, small waterfall, birds, and insects.

This was a great little trail! The frequent views of the lake were stunning. For me, it was just the right difficulty level- difficult enough that it didn’t feel like just a walk, but easy enough that I wasn’t completely worn out at the end.

Really liked the trail but it was poorly marked and confusing so I missed a loop.

Beautiful hike while the dogwoods were in bloom. Great overlook of the Lake. Mildly strenuous at first but gets easier once you reach the overlook. Nicely marked!

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.

Fun but crowded. Only second half of the hike was fun once off the stone path. The cave was awesome and definitely be best part!

Hate what they’ve done to it

beautiful waterfall!!!!

Expose to nature at It's finest with waterfalls, caves, underground rivers, creeks.

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.

Good trail, not signed all that well. hard to know where you are. Without a doubt it is well worth it. I will be back to ride it again.

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!

Take binos to see eagles.

Make sure to add time for exploring.

My son and I hiked this trail this weekend after almost 2 inches of rain the night before. The fall creek was high and moving. There was a lot of water on the trail and a few places where we had to cross the creek. Our feet were soaked. It was worth it. Overall an easy hike with great views.

Okay, you can't call a walk of under a quarter of a mile a hike, but it was still fun. There was enough water flowing over the bluff that we got the triple falls instead of the double that we hear sometimes occurs. They are small in terms of water volume, but still nice and taller than many in the area. It was a nice cozy place, the stream was beautiful, and it's worth the steep drive down to get there which is admittedly the hardest thing about this one.

I wanted to hike a nature trail on dirt. This trail is paved with art exhibits and lots of construction for more art exhibits. It took the fun out of the word hike.

This trail no longer exist.

Great trail! Definitely worth the hike.

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.

Short hike but after a good rain the falls are beautiful!

I've walked this trail 3 times and plan on going back for more! Love seeing the mine and waterfall. I take my 7 yr old daughter with me everytime and plan on taking my 3 yr old son next time. Although I would advise that if you want to see the extended cavern in the rock house, do not go after a heavy rain. The spring fills to the brim making it impossible to pass to get to the inner caverns. Quite disappointing since us my favorite part of the trail. Overall it's an amazing hike full of beautiful views and great memories to make.

This trail is epic. It is not a moderate trail!!! This was intense at times with so much elevation and immediate decline. The up and down is constant the entire trail. So that will take a toll on your endurance quick. However, if you can bare through it then you'll have some amazing experiences here. The aroma of fresh pines and cedar will keep your mind refreshed. The peaks and cliffs will keep your eyes wide open and satisfied with majestic views. The rocks, logs, boulders, and Creek crossing will keep your body challenged physically. We completed over 12 miles from 7am to 4pm. I took my time to take pictures but I am a fairly quick walker. Go look at my instagram and you see some amazing photos I captured with my dog. @danyandhisdogchica

I recommend this trail for the more experienced hikers. Make an entire day for it. Start early and finish with plenty of daylight.

Great quick hike with many scenic views

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

I wouldn’t actually consider this a hike. The road down to the falls is the most intense part of the journey and maneuvering it actually takes longer than the short stroll to the falls once you make it to the bottom. I personally wouldn’t drive down to the falls without a 4WD vehicle. The falls are absolutely breathtaking and worth seeing.

Just a spot on the OHT, with a nice creek.

Recently had surgery so this was a perfect hike for me. Can either go straight down to Falls or take a switch back trail. It’s not a maintained trail, Just made by use.
