Established in 1972, Buffalo National River flows freely for 135 miles and is one of the few remaining un-dammed 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.

Loved this trail! The challenging part was the incline you had to take going back up to the center point trail head but it's totally worth it! The view is wonderful.

Beautiful view. I urge you to look where u step if u walk to the very end! People should at least kick some dirt and leafs over their waste and toilet paper...... come on millennials.

this was one of our favorite hikes in the Buffalo River area. most of the trail follows an old road, so the path is wide and the grade is pretty gentle. the view at the "goat trail" section is incredible.

Excellent trail, great view, not safe for kids but a fun trail. Bit of a leg burner on the way out and be sure to carry in your water.

Wonderful hike!! The view is awesome and the hike is moderately taxing. Going is easier than returning to the parking area. Take it easy and slow and even us north of sixty people can enjoy it. Bring water and a snack and rest when needed and a good sandwich at the halfway point is rejuvenating. Glad we did it!!

It doesn't get any better than this in AR! If the water is running, the Eye of the needle is worth the effort to climb up to.

One of my favorites in Arkansas! The trail back is all uphill so make sure you have a lot of water.

A great experience with a group of hikers. It was very challenging and the climb was difficult for me but worth it. The eye of the Needle was amazing.
