We hiked from Erbie to Pruitt - 8.6 miles. Erbie Trailhead is accessed by County Road 2500 (old 79) gravel but good and Pruitt on State Highway 7. The bridge on State Highway 7 is being replaced and construction will occur there for another year but this will not impact your ability to park at the Pruitt trailhead. Of the four segments (day hikes from TH to TH) we hiked from Boxley to Pruitt this was the second best hike. There are a good number of areas where the trail crosses cedar glades and there will be water in the trail after a recent rain - the soil is thin and once saturated, drains into the trail tread. In places it is slippery and mucky. Much of this segment skirts along the bluff top right above the Buffalo River but alas there are so many trees there is "almost" never a clear view of the river or bluffs. Adair Cemetery was an interesting spot and the Ozark Campground has restrooms and the bluffs there are beautiful. The restrooms at Pruitt are closed for the winter but the town of Jasper is just a few miles south where you can get fuel and good food right on the town square. The trail is marked with white rectangles and wooden signs and, although few and far between, they occur at the right spots. The trail tread is well established and you won't get lost. You will encounter "ORT" signs designating the "Old River Trail" but that trail is best hiked in summer since multiple crossing of the river must occur. On this segment of the "BRT", Buffalo River Trail, you will not cross the river. You will encounter bluffs, rock outcrops and many side streams with beautiful boulders, cascades and waterfalls. We hiked 2 days after a significant rain and all water features were really flowing. I recommend the book, "Buffalo River Handbook," Second Edition (2018) by Kenneth L. Smith, for in-depth info about the National River and a step-by-step of the trail. Also, National Geographic's map "Buffalo National River West" has good road designation, trailhead location and other information useful in planning your hike. Alltrails has excellent information about this trail and nearby trails too. Happy Hiking!

Conditions were wet and muddy as the trees dripped water from their icy branches due to a storm the night before. None the less the hiking was still good with a beautiful overlook of the buffalo river atop steep cliffs.

First hiked in early November during peak fall foliage. Weather was perfect and the leaf colors made for amazing views from the bluff. Descending the trail is very rocky and parts are steep going down. Wear the right shoes! Ascending is mostly uphill and a great workout. If you have the stamina, take the extra work to hike from the bluff down to the river. Nice flat trails through the trees at the bottom of the mountain. Take a quick swim to cool off, there was no one else down there when I went down.

I am a fan of this trail. As a rock climber looking at the rock formations and the rock landscapes are really cool. it doesn't really have a lookout. There are tiny spots with little lookout. Its a very introperspective hike. all the focus is in the woods. It's really cool.

Trailhead directions not well marked once you leave HWY 270. Some picturesque creek crossings. The majority of my time was spent on double wides that look like they’re used mostly for ATV’s.

Was awesome to do in January. No bugs, fewer people. The most epic of views! Definitely not for those with a fear of heights. Take lots of water and snacks, its a long hike. Also coming back is pretty steep uphill at times so be prepared to save some water for when you'll really want it.

We did this section over 3 days, January 4-6, going Ponca to Kyle's Landing, then Kyle's to Erbie and finished with Erbie to Pruitt. The first day was hard but the other two were much easier with much smaller climbs. There are many great views of the Buffalo River, the bluffs and many cool rock formations along the way. On day 1 as you near Camp Orr Rd you can hear the Twin Falls below you but we didn't detour to see them. The trail is mostly easy to follow with blazes at important junctions with roads and other trails. There are several stream crossings but none very deep, but could be more challenging after a hard rain. Camping at Kyle's and Erbie is good. Highly recommend!

Nice CCC built trail with a scenic overlook and some cool rock formations. Wet in a lot of areas, very rocky. Trail was busy (nice sunny mid 50’s day in January) If you want an easier hike you can start at the top and loop back up without going down (& back) to the creek.

This trail is great for a moderately challenging hike. Gorgeous views and nice elevation changes!

This is the best trail I have hiked around here. The views at first aren't great, but once you get to the Goat Bluff Trail you will be amazed!

Long trail but it’s the route to Granny Henderson. Please Google her before coming out. Great history. This was an old county road and it’s easy to follow. We bushwhacked to a nearby homestead and cistern. It was great to see and knock around, before we got back on trail to Granny’s. Granny Henderson’s place was beautiful, historic home. The path is rocky and it does cross some natural springs and the path is wet and muddy. I took an 11yr old and 55yr old and they were slow making it out, but they made it. It took us 3.77miles to get to Granny’s, so it was 3.77 miles up hill. Yes. Up hill, so if your not used to it, pace yourself. We went early January, started cold but warmed to 45, then got cold again. So there was no bugs. We did 7.9 miles in about 4:45 minutes. About 1.37 miles in, there was a pile of rocks and a stick, stuck in them pointing to a side trail. There was no trail marker, and I’ve found no info, if anyone’s done it or knows where it goes please post. We used a Fitbit for mileage and times. The most rewarding part was spotting a bald eagle above is. This is beautiful country that God has made. Praise Him.

Should rename this to “Horse Apple Trail”.

Really wanted to do this one until I realized no dogs. I arrived and noticed no dogs. I was a little upset, maybe another time. I should have done better research

Great trail for anyone looking for an easy hike. This is great for beginners or anyone looking for a day to get out. Trail is in good shape and well marked. No real water on the trail except for when you make it to the lake just over 2 miles in.
