I didn't find a site for the falls. Just enter "Glory Hole Arkansas" in the search, many reviews from many sites will come up; take your choice.The falls has cut a hole into a bluff and falls through the 4-ft thick rock.

Park your car on the side of the highway and follow the trail for 15 minutes. The trail is easy but you may need to climb some rocks to get close to the hole, or go under the waterfall. Falls are very dry at the...More

This was a neat find, but it wasn’t really all the hype made it out to be. For a true hiker, this is more like an ‘easy’ trail, fill-in the time or early morning warm-up hike. For the novice or those with physical limitations, it...More

You have to really want to find the Glory Hole Trail and Waterfall. Your best bet is to plug it into your phone's GPS and let it lead you to it. There are no signs indicating the trail head, but there is a wide spot...More

We were on a road trip for two weeks in the American southeast, and I had found this hiking trail recommendation on social media. That day we spent the morning and early afternoon just driving through the vast backroads of the Ozarks, viewing the scenery....More

We hiked Glory Hole on Sunday 5/14/17. The hike, with some wondering around the falls, was about 2.3 miles round trip. The trailhead is on the right side of the road about 6 miles after Fallsville heading towards Deer. It was about a 1.5 hour...More

The trail is a little more complex than what I expected from what I had read. Twisting an ankle is a possibility. (I didn't). But be sure you are wearing the right shoes. The trail head isn't really well marked. There is no restroom and...More

It would be very rough on the dirt trail and almost impossible to see the falls from below. My husband has back problems and chose not to try to climb down rocks to get the view of water coming through the hole.
