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.

It was a pretty tough hike back out, but well worth it. Gorgeous views.

This was a beautiful trail we took with our small children on Mothers Day. The waterfalls and views were gorgeous! It would of been easy but carrying two small children on and off throughout the hike made it a little harder. And watch small children near the overlook, it's beautiful but very steep!

Hiked from Kyle's Landing to Steel Creek on the BRT. Then canoed from Steel Creek back to Kyle's Landing on the Buffalo River. A really cool way to make a "loop" back to the vehicle while getting some hiking and canoeing in. Awesome Place! Will be going back soon to hike the most western and most eastern parts of the BRT to finish the trail off!

This trail was an absolute blast. It seems to be it's own unique valley, where bugs are more prevalent but temperatures are lower. There are almost no campsites between the beginning and end of the trail, so we had to improvise and hammock on some of the thicker trees. It looks like the legendary "eye of the needle" rock formation crumbled recently :( vey much worth the hike

Second time to hike BRT from Steel Creek to Kyle's Landing and back to Steel Creek on ORT via Horseshoe Bend.

Jiminy Cricket, that's one heck of a road! I found a place to park about a mile from where it's suggested one park and just walked it. I have been on lots rutted, rocky dirt roads in AR, and this one is one of the worst so far.

The hike is a breeze by comparison! It's an easy, short hike, and both falls are gorgeous. This could be part of a multi-hike day in the area if you really want to make good use of your time. I did this trail, Hideout Hollow, and Hemmed In Hollow, and it made for an excellent day of hiking with lots and lots of waterfalls.

This is a really fun, easy trail with a great waterfall at the end. I would do this as an additional hike if you're out and about in the Erbie area.

It's pretty easy to get down to the base of the waterfall, but do be warned that the rocks down around the waterfall are all quite slippery. If you're careful, it's worth getting down there, as the hollow behind the falls is really impressive.
