Amber Canyon Falls are surprising easy to get to, and I had no problem with Google Maps bringing me to the intersection of Push Mountain Road and the old forest road (Johnson Road on some maps). You can't miss it either, you'll notice an old and run down trail parking area that now seems to be used for horse trailer parking.

Most vehicles could then easily drive around 1/3 mile along Johnson Road (dirt road, but it's as good as any I've been on) until you get to a large clearing to park at. After that, follow this old road until you reach the way point to leave this part of the hike. Even though this old forest road is getting over grown, it's still clearly used as a horse trail so it's easy to follow.

You do have a couple hundred feet of bushwhack downhill to another horse trail that follows the creek. This narrower trail will lead you back to the top of the falls.

For the most part, this is a very easy trail, the bushwhack is minor, but the drop to the bottom of the falls if you choose to do so is definitely a bit of a scramble.

Amber Canyon Falls is located near Big Flat AR, and is surprisingly easy to hike to.

From Big Flat, turn left onto Push Mountain Road (HWY 341) and at around 6.5 miles you'll see an old Recreation Area type place right by the highway. Turn Right here, onto a dirt road (in good shape) and park about a third of a mile later when you get to the clearing.

From there, you'll follow the old road that becomes progressively more overgrown as you hike it, (although it's used as a horse trail, so easy to follow) until you reach the waypoint listed to leave this trail. Head right and bushwhack a short way down the hill until you meet up with another horse trail. Turn right on this trail and it will follow a high line above the creek to your left, and eventually meet up with the top of Amber Canyon Falls
