Comment: Wonderful trail, beautiful waterfall (especially if you go after it rains). Great scenery on the way and you'll arrive at the waterfall before you know it. Doesn't even feel like 2 miles worth of hiking.

Comment: Cedar Falls Trail is a treat for your body, mind, and spirit. I first did this trail about 10 years ago. I was about 40ish and weighed roughly 75 lbs more than I do now. I used to wear the T-Shirt, “I survived the hike out.” Lately, I have been through a lot of emotional stress. I needed something special, just for my own spirit. I thought of Cedar Falls. I was apprehensive to do it because I am now 51 and by myself. I still had that memory of struggling up the hill when I was so much bigger. I made a plan. Yesterday, I laced up my Reeboks and made the drive from Hot Springs. I was so glad I did it. By the end of the trail, I felt renewed. I had made a new friend, experienced the beauty of the waterfall, and worked up a good sweat. I felt victorious. My newfound hiking buddy, a woman twenty years or so younger than I, had a hard time keeping up. She explained she had her own struggles with weight. We became a couple of cheerleaders for those we saw on the trail, struggling but not quitting. I felt like a part of something bigger than myself. That was just what I needed. I am just so thankful that we have such wonderful places still maintained for us here in Arkansas. We are truly blessed.

Comment: Cedar Falls is one of my most favorite places in the world to visit. I have taken some amazing pictures of the falls in every season. My favorite is one of the only times I can remember that the falls have frozen. It is an easy walk to the falls but always take caution. There is always possibility you could see snakes and other creatures as well as wildlife which may spook you if not prepared. Also the auto show it awesome as well as the grave site of petit jean which has a awesome view of the old Arkansas river channel.

Comment: I hiked this yesterday with my 4 year old. It was a great day spent with the kiddo. I was worried it was a bit more then we should take on for our first mom/son solo hike, we usually have my husband along, but we did just fine. It was raining, had been for most of last few days, so the trail was pretty wet and slick in a few places but not insurmountable. We saw tiny brown frogs, beautiful orange tinted mushrooms, and the falls themselves were stunning. We had the whole trail to ourselves with the light rain coming down. We even had the falls all to ourselves so we sat and ate some nuts and enjoyed the views for a bit. We hiked back up and enjoyed lunch at the lodge.
