Hike to Pam's Grotto

Arkansas Pam's Grotto Trailhead

Added by Kevin Abernethy

Pam's Grotto is a scenic waterfall in the Haw Creek Falls Recreation Area. It's a quick out-and-back hike to this stunning falls.

Getting to this trailhead is the most difficult part. The small parking area/campground is located about a half mile east of the Haw Creek Falls Campground. You will see a pull off on the east side of the road where you can park your car.

Once you are ready to hit the trail you will cross the road from where you parked. You will see a small creek that flows underneath the highway, you will want to stay to the right of that. Follow the marked trail uphill for about a quarter of a mile, once you run into the bluffs you will turn left and keep the bluffs on your right hand side for another quarter of a mile. You will soon hear the water flowing at the grotto and you will take a short downhill path to see the waterfall up close. Be sure to visit after a decent amount of rain to see Pam's Grotto at its best.
