Getting There

The Riverview, Spring Hollow, Buck Ridge, and Rock Wall Trails can be accessed from the Tyler Bend Visitor Center and Campground area. Leashed dogs are allowed on all of these except the Riverview Trail. Small-mouth bass, catfish and sunfish are the most popular fish to catch on the Buffalo River, but visitors should be aware that an Arkansas fishing license is required to fish anywhere on the river. The middle river location also allows for extended seasons for kayaking and tubing. If there's enough rain, the sports can go through mid to late summer. Get a dose of history by hiking to the Collier Homestead, a restored Ozark dwelling from the 1930's. The homestead remembers one of the homes built by settlers in response to the Homestead Act of 1862.

Great scenes of the buffalo river at the peak of the trail. One view doesn't have hand-railings so proceed with caution. The water is a nice teal color right now.

Hikers should also visit the Collier pioneer homestead when hiking this Riverview Trail. Excellent vista of the Buffalo River upstream and mountain ridges to the west.

I was just looking for a quick hike but found some gorgeous trails instead. Definitely need the time here to explore and absorb. The Buffalo River is a special area and the trail system at Tyler Bend is a wonderful surprise.

Easy to follow trail-make sure you keep going at the top of the ridge to the Collier Homestead. Beautiful views of the Buffalo River!

Great, short trail. Fantastic views of the river, surprising elevation gain / loss, and I think I saw where there'd be waterfalls during the wet season. Well groomed and easy to navigate.

It gets a bit steep right before the outlook but it's short lived and definitely worth the view.

Beautiful river views. Well marked trail. It ends at the trees on the top of the ridge or you can continue on to the visitor center. There isn't a lot to see though.

The Visitor Center has a lot of information about the area. Great vistas and the Collier homestead is very cool, you can even go inside and get a feel for life in the early part of the last century. DO IT!!!

Nice trail. Besides the high winds the hike was beautiful and the view was outstanding. The Collier Homestead is just down the trail a bit and both stops are worth the trip.

Easy, short, and well maintained trail with slightly steep incline at the end. River views from the bluff were impressive.

We hiked from Tyler Bend Visitor Center to the Collier Homestead and back along the return trail. Nice views of the river and interesting old restored homestead. Lots of wildflowers blooming along the trail. Parts of the trail was muddy from recent rains but the footing was ok.The visitor's center was really nice and staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

if you do this trail is better if you tie in the Collier Homestead Trail with it here is a great example on how people lived in the higher elevations of the arkansas mountains and also on this trail is two great overlooks. a nice short trail for families to explore. even on a cold cloud January day with the wind cutting to my bones on my hands and face. i really enjoyed both trails.

Beautiful hike! Fantastic lookout points, fallen trees, bluffs, and rock formations which provide a true AR backdrop for a photo shoot. The old homestead is another attraction. Very nice visitor's welcome center.

The trail was pretty narrow at the beginning, but opened up at the overlook. The views were wonderful!
