“a serene waterfall oasis”

Falling Beauty Waterfall also known as Falling Water Waterfall is a natural wonder that requires absolutely no hiking.  It is literally roadside in the Richland Creek area of south Newton county in north Arkansas. This beautiful little waterfall is conveniently located right next to the road, so you don't even have to get out of your car to see it! Falling Water Falls is located on, of course, Falling Water Creek, just a few miles east of Ben Hur, on Falling Water Road/FR# 1205. There is also a nice big pool that the falls spill into, and it is a popular swimming hole in the summer. This waterfall is located just south of the Richland Creek Wilderness Area, which also has numerous other beautiful waterfalls, well worth a day of exploring. Get acquainted with the hypnotizing natural phenomenon of waterfalls in Arkansas graciously provided by Mother Nature herself. Some of the most striking Arkansas waterfalls can be found in the Ozark Mountains and Ouachita Mountain ranges, which cover approximately two-thirds of The Natural State.A word of caution: some of these living waterfalls are located in fairly remote areas of Arkansas. The trailhead may be difficult to reach and physical stamina may be required. We've done our best to classify the falls as to their ease of accessibility. Oftentimes these natural waterfalls are not more than a small stream that pours over a wide ledge and drops about 10 feet into a pool below. After heavy rains, though, the water gushes over much of the rock overhang, located in a beautiful, wooded spot. At the junction of Scenic 7 Byway and Ark. 16 at Pelsor, turn east on Ark. 16 to Ben Hur, then go south about 1.5-miles until you reach Forest Service Road 1205. Turn east on this road and remain on it for approximately 3 to 4 miles. You'll be following Falling Water Creek and will come upon the falls to your right. They are easily visible from your vehicle. If you continue on this road another 6-8 miles, you'll come to Richland Creek Campground, a trailhead for trips back to Richland Falls and Twin Falls.

Wandered around quite a while on a (dirt) road by this name and couldn't find it. Make sure you get plenty of further directions before trying it.

Only come here after a long rain... Other wise it can be a little anticlimactic in the middle of summer.
