Lost Valley Trail and Waterfall (Ponca, AR)

Shaddox Hollow Trail is located in Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area in Rogers, AR. We hiked this trail with my 5 year old son, and my husband backpacked my 2 year old. Though it’s not one of the more scenic trails we’ve done, Shaddox Hollow Trail has a little bit of everything…lake views, bluffs, creek, river, wildflowers and wildlife, and a few steeper grade climbs to keep it interesting but not too difficult.
It took about an hour and a half round-trip, including a snack break and a few rest stops for the little ones. This is a great family friendly trail if you just want a shorter hike and maybe combine this with some other fun things around the Hobbs State Park area, such as War Eagle Mill.
