The magnitude of the waterfall is determined by what season it is and how much rain the state has received. Normally, spring is the best time for viewing the waterfall.

Hiking Trails

There are three different hiking trails that will lead you to the falls but be prepared because the hike is very steep and difficult. The quickest way to get to Hemmed-In-Hollow-Falls is a float trip on the Buffalo River through the river trailhead and then a 3-mile hike from Kyle's Landing. You can also reach the falls by horseback too!
