Natural Falls State Park is located on the Oklahoma/Arkansas border in West Siloam Springs, off of Highway 412 West. It is a picturesque state park boasting a magnificent waterfall, lush greenery, and scenic hiking trails.
The highlight of the park is the 77 ft. waterfall that is only a mile inside the park. You can view the falls from above or below....both of which are stunning.
There is an abundance of easy nature hikes in the park. They are not too long or hard, and they range from easy to moderate.
The hike to the falls can be found along Dripping Springs Trail - a 1.1-mile hike that is rated as moderate. Part of the trail is paved and the rest is gravel and natural surfaces.
Dogs are welcomed but need to be on a leash. The park is open 7 days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Along the trail, you'll also pass by a beautiful spring, a lovely lake, bluffs, and more.
Once you reach the end of the trail you'll come to this magnificent setting. No swimming is allowed but there is a viewing area.
