High Bank Twins Waterfall in Ozark, AR
After a few rainy weeks in May, we got out to spend the day chasing waterfalls. We visited the 71 ft. High Bank Twin Falls in Ozark, AR....one of the tallest waterfalls in the Ozarks!
The trail to the waterfall is only a quarter mile out and back and is rated as medium difficulty due to it's rocky terrain. Some of the rocks can be slippery as well. On our visit we saw a few couples in their 60's, and another family with smaller children navigating the trail. We went slowly and held my 3 year old's hand and he did absolutely fine. My 6 year old needed no assistance.
The trail to the falls is gorgeous! There are other waterfalls and cascades along the way. The excitement of getting to the falls naturally makes you want to pick up the pace, but take this one slow...it's worth it!
(Directions and more info at the bottom of post)
|The trail starts off with a short and level meandering through the woods. |
|The path will soon start closing in a bit and this is where things start to get interesting! |
This is one of the smaller waterfalls along the way. You can't tell by the picture, but it's actually pretty tall! This was a gorgeous spot. We stopped to let the kids play here a while.
|Because of the trees, it was impossible to get a good picture of the whole waterfall from a distance. I'd love to come back on a winter hike to be able to see it after a snow thaw!|
