Canyon Trail

Petit Jean State Park

Region: Arkansas River Valley
Length: 1 mile; 2 miles if backtracking to Cedar Falls Trail [?] * Approximate time for trail completion - 2 hours (times will vary for equestrian / hiking)
Trail Type: Hiking Trail

Once part of the Boy Scout Trail, this trail follows Cedar Creek's many small falls and deep pools as it splashes through the Cedar Creek Canyon. Large boulders and huge pines and sycamores dominate this very pleasant trail. (Yellow Blazes)

The Canyon Trail is considered easy, but the section on Cedar Falls Trail is moderate to strenous.

This was a nice leisurely stroll on the way to the blue hole. There are several natural bridges that were cool to check out and where this trail ends there was a nice crossing that was great for picture taking. Jesse N (11/15/2013)
