Great trail! I highly recommend having trekking poles. Very deep descent, but worth the views!

This may be the most popular canoe-in spot on the upper Buffalo. To see it by foot, take the trailhead near Compton, AR. It's a relatively short hike with some great views and an old pioneer cabin along the way. Then it gets steep -- very steep, a challenge no matter how fit you are. Plan to stay the day, or overnight if you can. Can't camp near the fall, but there are plenty of great spots near the river or upstream along nearby Sneeds Creek.
