This 3-Mile Hike In Arkansas Leads To An Unbelievably Beautiful Waterfall
Most of Arkansas’ natural beauty is easy to spot as soon as you step outside; however, some of the state’s hidden treasures take a bit of effort. This side-trip from the Ozark Highlands Trail is well worth the exertion to reach not one, but two lovely waterfalls. Let’s map out this adventure to reach the gorgeous Punchbowl Falls.
This hike is not recommended for young children or inexperienced hikers. We have plenty of 1 mile and under hikes for the whole family or a different waterfall trail that’s more accessible.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
