Magnificent Cedar Falls
Petit Jean State Park
Morrilton, Arkansas
For thousands of years, visitors have
come to see this magnificent waterfall.
Among the most beautiful in Arkansas,
this fall flows even in dry weather (when
the photograph at right was taken) and
is the centerpiece of Petit Jean State
Park.

Archaeologists know that Native
Americans first explored the area around
Cedar Falls thousands of years.
Likewise, the vicinity has been popular
since the early days of Arkansas
settlement.

The waterfall is created by Cedar Creek,
which flows off the edge of a rocky bluff
and more than 90 feet straight down into
a canyon.

Cedar Falls can be accessed by a hiking
trail that leads for 2 miles along the
bottom of the canyon. The hike, however,
is quite strenuous. An excellent view,
without all the hard work, is available
from a well-designed wooden
boardwalk and overlook just off Highway
154.
