Falling Water Water Falls

The name is redundant but this was a beautiful set of waterfalls right off the road on the way into the Richland Creek Wilderness. From highway 16 travelling from Ben Hur, AR take the left turn onto Falling Water Road. It is called CR 1205 in some places. I could not find either of these names on the road itself until you are well down it. The sign that marked it on Hwy 16 was a sign for the Falling Water Horse Camp. If you head toward that horse camp you will be heading toward Richland Creek Wilderness and you are going to pass right alongside the Falling Water Water Falls. They would be really difficult to miss off to the right. In the pictures below note the ladder on one of the trees near the falls. Looks like a great swimming hole in the summer.
