Brown Creek Cascades is one of the few falls in the Ouchita's that Tim Ernst documents in his "Arkansas Waterfalls" book.

Located in the Flatside Wilderness area, this very short and easy hike is close to a couple of other sights worth seeing while you are there. Flatside Pinnacle Mountain give views for miles on clear days, and Flatside Pinnacle Falls is another fall less than 5 miles away.

Even though cell signal is sketchy around here, google maps will take you right to the trail head for Brown Creek Cascades, which starts at the left hand corner of a primitive camping area that is evidently well used.

The short hike is a quick skip over the creek that runs along the back side of the camp site, and then along an old logging trail. No major obstacles or elevation changes whatsoever.

If driving from Hwy 9 near Williams Junction, you have around 5 miles of FS 55 to navigate. This dirt/gravel road is usually in decent shape, although you do have to ford across a couple of drainage creeks. Most 2WD vehicles would easily handle this though, unless in a highwater situation.
