If you have time and energy to take this hike, do it! The hike down is fairly easy! The hike back up is pretty strenuous, especially if you have to carry your child back out. It's 1 mile down there and another mile back out...More

Such a fun trail among others. It can be challenging in some places but worth it. You will see breathtaking sights at this park.

This is probably the most popular of the seven trails at Petit Jean because it is fairly short (1.7 miles). This and the beautiful waterfall = crowded. There will be a lot of people on this trail. The first part is steep and challenging. After...More

Make sure the water levels are up before visiting. We we're here nine years ago and it was awesome. This year they have had no rain and it's very dry and the water is not flowing much.

The Cedar falls trail was great but don’t miss the bridge and waterfall behind the welcome center area.

We're not sure that this was the trail we were on but if not we will surely walk this one next time we come by. Cedar falls was absolutely beautiful and I would love to come back again just to see it at its fullest!

Such an amazingly beautiful trail. We will be back. The first half of the hike on the way down is a bit grueling and honestly tough on the knees because it is rock stairs going pretty steeply down, but then it levels off to make...More

Easy to get to and clearly marked trail. The views and waterfall are amazing. Loved it! The walkways are well maintained and safe. We went to the overlook but you can actually walk all the way down to the bottom of the falls. It’s about...More

Very beautiful scenic trail to the waterfall and creek. We went after very heavy rainfall and the falls were absolutely amazing with all that water flowing. Be prepared for a pretty good hike back up. Take water and your camera and make a good time...More
