nice little hiking trail and love the cave

Great family friendly trail with lots of sights and activities packed into a short hike. Fun and beautiful.

Great trail. If you have bad knees I would be cautious most of this train is lost on large steps and large lost rock!

Pay attention to your map! A TON of people we talked to along the way told us we were at the top when we were only halfway up. There are roads at both trailheads, if you don't see a parking lot and a road you are NOT done.

Very cool trail. As first time park goers we couldn't find the waterfalls, so definitely have a good map!

Great trail and moderately easy. Only small inclines that we’re short! We have had so much fun exploring Arkansas. We were able to take the Drone and get some amazing footage of Yellow Rock Overlook. Please check it out at this link

On 7/15/18, I hiked both this and the Yellow Rock trails, which I suggest doing. The FF trail was nice and peaceful, and provided me with various opportunities to explore the creek bed. The YR trail was more vertical, and provided numerous spectacular vistas. To top it off, there is a knee-deep “swimming hole” near the YR trailhead.

It was a beautiful, scenic trail. We took lots of pictures of the surrounding mountainsides. Wish I could say I’d be back when the waterfall was flowing, but I came from out of state. We explored the campgrounds as well. I’d definitely recommend the park to anyone who loves camping and hiking.

Love this trail, but it really could use better signage at crossroads areas towards the end.

Today there were so many spiderwebs over the path and it was overgrown in areas, so not recommended in sandals.

Saw lots of wildlife, including a woodchuck, several deer, and some tiny frogs.

Water is really low right now so creek crossing isn't an issue.

A nice and easy hike along Lee Creek. We used it as a warm-up hike for our day. There are plenty of areas along the way to stop and splash around in the water too. Our dogs sure loved it!

Great trails! Last time I was here in July of 2017, there was A LOT of spiders, so many I was nervous and decided to turn around. The other times I have gone, June 2015 and July 2016, not so many!

Beautiful trail. A lot of people on the look outs who were kind of camped out made it a little less enjoyable, but if people don’t bother you, the trail is nice. Great in the spring with the dogwoods blooming and lots of flowing water.

Great hike. Very scenic. Heavily trafficked on weekends. Worth it though.

Great little trail, not marked up so the reviews were very helpful to locate. We did end up going too far though looking for the cave! Once you find the waterfall, cave trail is to the right. You have to hike down to get to it. So neat and very secluded. We were the only ones out there when we went on a Saturday afternoon.

Excellent quick trail with lots to offer. Tons of caves, rock walls, and with heavy rain apparently a waterfall (no rain lately so not present today). Trail was well marked and nearby several other trails.

It was fun! Family friendly and very beautiful. Sometimes the trail was hard to follow so I was thankful for this app’s map.

Fantastic moderate hike. The trail is clearly marked and easy to keep track of. Which is great, because you really need to mind your footing with all the loose and embedded rocks. The overlook is fantastic. There’s a second ledge a bit past the first, so you can get some great pictures if you are hiking with a partner. This trail also offered several nice stopping points to take a break or grab some water. Easily one of my favorites in NWA.

Loved! Had lunch at the last overlook. We went and it was super hot, but shaded so still bearable. Nice to tag on after the Devils Den Trail.

We loved it! A little difficult to navigate due to not being marked really well at certain starting points and turns, but getting turned around isn’t that big of a deal - we still saw everything.
Loved the caves (closed but cool to see), loved the low-temp crevices, and the rock formations were beautiful all over. A nice easy hike to start off the day.
We took this trail straight to the Yellow Rock Trail.

views from the top were amazing, it got a little confusing towards the end where the trail wasn't marked well where a wooden bridge was blocked off. Amazing view of the valley!

Such a beautiful trail! Little longer and more strenuous than the Devils Den trail nearby. The overlook is breathtaking! After the overlook, KEEP GOING! The trail continues and it is absolutely beautiful but so many people just turn around at the overlook and go back. You are robbing yourself of some serene Ozark beauty if you turn around!

Excellent hike that at a modest pace, even my 70yr old father in law was able to do. Ice box was especially interesting (and refreshing) on a hot day.

Fun, easy trail! Waterfalls were beautiful. Too bad the caves were closed.
