Description

This is a unique Arkansas waterfall that is a challenge to reach! It requires a hike through a very slick slot canyon. A visit to the falls can produce some very good pictures following a rain when the water cascades down the end of the slot canyon in to a wide pool.

Half-Day Hike: The waterfall can be reached by taking the Cecil Cove Trail from the Erbie Trailhead.
