Grotto Falls on the Seven Hollows Trail at Petit Jean State Park

Grotto Falls

May 13, 2017

The wind was howling at Stout's Point a half hour before sunrise, and that blasted away any hope that there might be fog down on the Arkansas River far below and the surrounding flatlands.

But I've been wanting for some time to go back to the Grotto Falls on Seven Hollows Trail, and after stopping for a few minutes at the Cedar Falls overlook and the overlook at Mather Lodge, that's what we finally decided to do.

After the previous day's rain, I was hoping for a generous flow through the falls, but it turned out to be a little short of that, but good enough, and not so stingy that I was going to waste a four and a half mile hike under a camera pack on a sometimes rough trail.
