Trail Overview

This trail follows FS1705/Kenney Rd and runs along Frog Bayou, the main tributary for Lake Fort Smith, and features Frog Bayou Falls. Frog Bayou can be traveled either direction starting from Bidville Rd on the west side, or from FS 124 on the east side. The highlight of the trip is Frog Bayou falls which is more easily accessed from the east side with a travel time of 45 minutes or less to reach the falls, this side of the trail is mostly an easy rating. Starting on the west side, travel time to the falls is between 2-3 hours and features several narrow, overgrown sections that are sure to leave pinstripes if you are in anything bigger than a SxS. This side of the trail is intermediate and features water crossings, steep climbs and descents, washouts, mudholes and Kenney Cemetery.


60% of the trail is easy, but there are several intermediate sections and obstacles like mudholes, water crossings and steep grades.
