America's First National River Established in 1972, Buffalo National River flows freely for 135 miles and is one of the few remaining undammed rivers in the lower 48 states. Once you arrive, prepare to journey from running rapids to quiet pools while surrounded by massive bluffs as you cruise through the Ozark Mountains down to the White River.

A tad on the chilly and drizzly side equated to having the area to ourselves...which was fantastic. 3-4 really neat and accessible areas for the whole family; wife, four year old, six month old, and myself.

great trail! was busy though! go on a weekday!

Nice hike! I enjoyed entering the cave, I must warn you it is hard to enter.

It was very dry in the area due to lack of rain, but this is an amazing trail to explore cliff outcrops.

AMAZING spot! Waterfall was just a trickle, but still very impressive. Be sure to follow the trail to the top and check out the cave.

They don't allow dogs therefore stupid. Way too overpopulated, very crowded.

Good all around hike for all ages, lots of things to see.

We hiked this trail just before the start of fall season. So didn't get to experience the waterfall. Natural bridge was the high point of our hike. Easy to follow, well maintained

The hike is okay but the cave at the end are amazing. Make sure you go to the end of the cave because there will be a surprise waiting for you.

Amazing views and trails for a easy hike and also for a difficult hike you can go over the rocky path and also can go into the caves. So beautiful

This stunning trail's short length, restrooms and picnic area make it a really nice hike for kids. My two are thrilled with this trail, especially the first two caves that they can climb in. We have been a few times this year, the last time being just a few weeks ago (end of September) during breeding season, and we still didn't see any. Lucky us!

In May, the waterfalls were running high and the scenery was stunning. In October, there was only a trickle. Still a fun and beautiful, kid-friendly hike. Very crowded area, though. If you want solitude, this is definitely not the place to find it!

Great hike even if you can't go into the caves at the top, you will enjoy this one for sure.

I would say this is a must see while in Arkansas! Very easy for an experienced hiker, but wonderful views! If you enjoy caving be sure to take a headlamp. They have some nice, tight spaces to crawl around. Very interesting!

Great trail with kids! Water fall, caevs ,and grate hiking!
