Coolant Leak But Can't Find It

this morning i was driving my car and i stop and it just started smokeing really bad, so i stopped and shut it off and tried to see where it was coming out of but everything was covered in coolant and i couldn't see where it was coming out of, so i drove it home and parked it and fill it up with water and ran it and still couldnt tell were it was coming out of.

how could i tell if the head was cracked or something?

It's probably a pinhole leak on the underside of a hose somewhere
Or maybe on a hose that's hard to see
Check the connections too
