“Water” you up to?  During the winter, waterfalls across Arkansas usually flow pretty well after an inch or two of rain.  We took the Adventure Subaru to the Pig Trail to see Murray and Senyard Falls, and then we ventured west to Rattlesnake Falls near White Rock Mountain.

See directions below :

MURRAY FALLS

Directions:  Take the Pig Trail (Highway 23) to Cherry Bend Trailhead. Park and take the marked trail down the hill a ways. You can stay higher up with the orange flagged trees, or head all the way down the ravine to the creek itself and follow it down about a half mile.  You'll come to the canyon right to Murray Falls.


SENYARD FALLS
