My kids were on spring break, so my wife wanted to take them to see their grandparents in Fort Smith over the weekend. I decided that it would be a great opportunity to go on my first waterfall hunt. I packed my camera gear, borrowed a friends GPS unit, got out my Arkansas Waterfall Guidebook and took off.
It was a bright sunny day, fairly cool, and I was excited. I left the house about 10 AM and headed to Atkins, got off the interstate and went up Hwy 105 to Old Arkansas 7, which was about 20 miles of dirt road. I got to the trailhead for Kings Bluff Falls around noon. (That's one of the hard parts about hunting waterfalls from Little Rock: it's a two hour drive to just about anywhere in Arkansas with waterfalls!) It was an easy 20 minute walk to the top of the falls. Kings Bluff Falls is the fourth highest waterfall in Arkansas at 114 feet tall.
There is another waterfall on the east side of the bluff, near the path down to the bottom, but I didn't get any good shots of it.
I wasn't done for the day, either.
