Hike to Sweden Creek Falls

Arkansas Sweden Creek Falls TH

Added by

This is a short hike to an 81' straight drop waterfall with beautiful turquoise water.

Proceed to Sweden Creek Falls Natural Area near Kingston, Arkansas. Find somewhere to park near the gate along the dirt road. The trailhead is located beside the gate. Follow the old jeep path and continue past the old abandoned house on the right. Once the path ends, look for the blue trail marker on the trees and follow it through a split in the bluff line. Once you crawl down this area, immediately to your right is a series of smaller waterfalls that are worth checking out.

Continue following the blue trail markers that are posted in the trees. If you lose the markers simply follow the bluff line on your left and it will lead you straight to the falls. Once the bluffs make a turn back to the left you'll begin hearing the falls through the trees. Just continue along the bluff until the trees clear and you will be greeted by one of my favorite waterfalls of all time. Feel free to explore the area around the falls, but be careful on the slippery rocks around the falls. Take time to sit back, listen, and watch the creek above drop 81' into a turquoise pool below. There are also a number of wild ferns and some beautiful mossy covered rocks. Once you're ready to head back to your car, simply turn around and follow the trail back out.

For the best view, I recommend going after a rain so you can experience the full power of this waterfall.

How to Get There

Stunning falls!

Great hikes to both the top and bottom of the falls, with the top being a beginner level hike and the bottom more intermediate. Totally worth it to jump in the water at the end.
