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.

Carried the 1 year old but the 4 and 7 year were able to do the whole thing no problem. Amazing cave experience with the creek running through. Even grandma was able to complete it but she needed to rest the rest of the day.

One of my favorite hikes in AR. Trail starts off well maintained and fairly easy. Gets a little more challenging as you get closer to the cave. Cool waterfalls both inside & outside the cave. Take a flashlight if you plan on going in the cave.

Great hiking trail! Be prepared for steep steps and rock climbing. :-)

Bring good flashlights! When you enter the cave above the waterfall, stick to the right wall. Enter the very narrow walkway (It appears to likely stop as it us quite narrow) to avoid crawling through the water to get to the underground waterfall! This path keeps you fairly dry.

Must enter the cave.

Absolutely loved this trail. Several cool waterfalls to explore. Make sure to take a flashlight and wear clothes you don't mind getting wet and muddy to explore deep into the cave - it is amazing!!

Lots to see and explore. Great for kids who like to climb over rocks and through tunnels!

This was a gorgeous hike and the cave is soo awesome! Loved seeing the bats!

Loved it!!! The hike is okay, but with the waters low, exploring the creek bed was a blast.

Very Nice trail for a morning hike. We went to the cave.... take a good flashlight. Worth taking time to explore the area.

Lots of cool rock formations and small waterfalls
