First of all – as you can see by the picture – Fuzzy Butt Falls is a lot prettier than the name would imply! This 16’ waterfall flows inside of a very unique box canyon, making for a beautiful, serene Ozark setting.

About the Trail:

The hike to Fuzzy Butt Falls is an easy 1 mile walk down a horse trail.  There are also a couple of spur trails here that lead to a nice, scenic spot on Falling Water Creek and to another waterfall called Horsetail Falls.  From the bridge parking spot, cross back over the bridge and find the horse trail on the west side of the creek.  From here, simply follow the main trail for 1 mile.  Off to your left you will see some bluffs.  Head up into the canyon here and it’s just a short walk to the falls.

Pack a lunch and plan to spend some time here, as this is an awesome spot to relax!
