Wednesday Adventure: Waterfall Hike

  • Glory Hole Falls Trail AR, 72854 United States (map)
WhatsApp Image 2019-03-26 at 8.53.53 PM.jpeg

Today we will visit two of the most gorgeous waterfalls in the Ozarks.  We will start our day at Glory Hole Falls. This waterfall is a site to see, having carved a hole in the rock, this 30’+ high waterfall is picture perfect this time of year.  

After climbing back out, we will head to our second falls, Alum Cove.  This area is most known for the incredible natural bridge that spans over 130’.  This easy hike will allow us to see it from above and then climb down under the natural bridge where we will see small waterfalls coming down every side of the feature.  This 1.5 mile hike is also filled with caves of all shapes and sizes. We will take our time to explore the entire area and dip into these caves to see what they have to offer!

Relax after this exciting day celebrating Spring starting in the Ozarks while we drive you home.  Go into your week refreshed and relaxed!
