Hideout Hollow Trail is a cool 1-mile trail near Compton (Newton County) in the Buffalo National River. The highlight of the trail is Hideout Hollow, a beautiful valley overlook which during wet times has a 37-foot waterfall.
These are some videos I took of Hideout Hollow Falls back on May 10, 2015.
This first one is of the falls from over on the south side of the hollow.
We were fortunate to spend Thanksgiving weekend at the cabin. It was an amazingly rainy weekend, and we got to spend a lot of time with rest and relaxation.
However, by Sunday I was starting to get cabin fever, and with all the rain, I knew the water would be flowing. We didn’t want to venture too far out in the wilderness as the rain had gone from light to very heavy, and as much as I love the outdoors, in a cold, wet rain can be a tough way to go about enjoying them.
After a couple of failed attempts to see other waterfalls (due to many water crossings being flooded), we headed down to check out Highway 123 Falls, a 47-foot Ozark National Forest waterfall in northeast Johnson County. Continue reading Highway 123 Falls (Ozark Forest)→
Native American Falls is a fantastic waterfall in some rugged country within the Piney Creeks Wildlife Management Area in the Ozark National Forest in northwest Pope County.
The parking spot is easy to find and the falls is rugged to get to, but you will be rewarded with a fantastic 41-foot tall waterfall that cascades down the bluff and some beautiful scenery along the way.
Getting to Piney Creeks Wildlife Management Area
The trailhead is easy to find. It is .4 miles south of Pelsor (aka Sand Gap) on Highway 7. Pelsor is a small community 28 miles south of Jasper and 28 miles north of Dover on Highway 7.
There is a sign for the Piney Creeks Wildlife Management Area on the west side of the highway. Park by the sign.
