Cedar Falls At Petit Jean State Park

Cedar Falls

Cedar Falls at Petit Jean State Park here in Arkansas

Last month I hiked down into Cedar Creek Canyon at Petit Jean State Park here in Arkansas to photograph Cedar Falls. It had been raining off and on here in Arkansas so I was hoping that water was flowing over the falls. Cedar Falls cascades more than 90 feet to the canyon floor. Cedar Falls can be accessed by a hiking trail that leads for 2 miles along the bottom of the canyon.

Petit Jean State Park is Arkansas’s first state park: Petit Jean State Park

The trail begins behind the breezeway at Mather Lodge, a majestic CCC rustic style mountain lodge, and winds down into Cedar Creek Canyon. Massive stone boulders and large trees adorn the trailside. The trail then follows Cedar Creek to 95-foot Cedar Falls, one of the tallest continuously flowing waterfalls in the state. This is a photographer’s paradise.
