I was excited to find out that there was a waterfall in Oklahoma that could be easily visited from the Fayetteville, Arkansas area (where I flew into). When getting the rental car, the woman was very enthusiastic about Natural Falls. My only concern about visiting it was time, as I had arrived later than expected, and the park closes at 5 pm, at least in the winter (or early March).
I did actually luck out and arrived at 4:30 pm. I had 30 minutes to visit the falls, and the hike the falls is extremely short. There is an upper viewpoint, and a surprisingly easy hike down to the base. Now, as with other falls, there wasn’t a whole of water, but I can’t complain about this because it was so simple to visit! I can handle that!
There is another portion of the falls not shown in the picture. There is (I think) a spring that emerges from the rock near the falls, but it was bright at that point, and it was hard to photograph both falls at the same time.
- From Siloam Springs in Arkansas (or West Siloam Springs in Oklahoma), head west on US-412 until you reach the entrance to the park.
- Pay the entrance fee and then turn left just past the entrance to head to the falls trail.
Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Length of Hike: 0.2 miles round-trip
