"Visit The Falls" Petit Jean State Park Things to Do Tip by MikeDarcy

Petit Jean State Park Things to Do: 7 reviews and 7 photos


For thousands of years, visitors have come to see this magnificent waterfall. Among the most beautiful in Arkansas, this fall flows even in dry weather (when the photograph at right was taken) and is the centerpiece of Petit Jean State Park.
Archaeologists know that Native Americans first explored the area around Cedar Falls thousands of years. Likewise, the vicinity has been popular since the early days of Arkansas
The waterfall is created by Cedar Creek, which flows off the edge of a rocky bluff and more than 90 feet straight down into a canyon.
Cedar Falls can be accessed by a hiking trail that leads for 2 miles along the bottom of the canyon. The hike, however, is quite strenuous. An excellent view, without all the hard work, is available from a well-designed wooden boardwalk and overlook just off Highway 154.
