Large rocks near the end of the trail. If you continue on from here, you’ll be on the Boy Scout Trail and not Bear Cave Trail.

The Bear Cave Trail at Petit Jean State Park is a very short trail — only about a quarter-mile long. In fact, it really is not so much a trail as it is a spectacular place to walk around and explore. There is a lot to see in this small area.

The Bear Cave Trail trailhead is on Highway 154, one mile west of Mather Lodge. The trail starts at the back of the parking area.

Petit Jean: Video of Seven Hollows Grotto Waterfall 3-30-2014

The Seven Hollows Trail at Petit Jean State Park (near Morrilton) is an awesome trail that features many bluffs, hollows, and valleys. It is about 4 miles long, and is very scenic through most of the hike.

I had a great hike there on Sunday. I had been on the trail once before in the summer. It was nice to be there when the streams are flowing and there is water at the waterfall in the Grotto area. The Grotto is a small box canyon with a cave overhang at about the trail’s halfway point.

These are some cell videos I took of the waterfall in the Grotto on Sunday.

Cedar Falls, Petit Jean State Park (panoramic)

Back in March, I was excited to be able to go see Cedar Falls at Petit Jean State Park (near Morrilton, Arkansas) when there was plenty of water flowing. I have only visited the falls a few times. This time by far had the most water.
