Lake Catherine State Park really is one of the most underrated gems in Arkansas. It’s 2,180 acres of pure Natural State beauty in western Arkansas’s Hot Spring County. The park’s crown jewel, of course, is Falls Creek Falls, a 10-foot-tall cascade that’s practically perfect. The hike to see this waterfall is equally extraordinary, and it’s also one of the most accessible trails in Lake Catherine State Park. Arkansas’s Falls Branch Trail is a 1.7-mile loop trail that leads to a magnificent hidden oasis, complete with a cerulean pool and a wondrous waterfall.

Have you tackled Arkansas’s Falls Branch Trail before? It really is a must for all adventurous Arkansans!

If you want to make a weekend out of your trip to Falls Creek Falls, consider a stay at this cozy little cabin located right on Lake Catherine.
