Buffalo National River

The Buffalo National River and surrounding National Forests and Wilderness Areas are great for spring time canoeing and year round hiking.

To the west, the Buffalo National River begins as a trickle in the Boston Mountains. It flows 135 miles to the east through the Arkansas Ozarks and into the White River.

Buffalo River Biking:
In 1972, the Buffalo was designated a national river. Hiking or riding in the area, you'll pass through hollows used as hideouts for guerrilla bands during the Civil War. Many miles of double-track fan out over the hills on each side of the river.

Hot Springs National Park has numerous thermal springs that are also very popular, although the area tends to overdo commercialism.

Eureka Springs:
Well before the first pioneers reached Arkansas, the Eureka Springs area was considered sacred ground by Native American tribes; who believed it to be a Great Healing Spring.

The Ozarks

The 60,000 square mile Ozark Plateau stretches through three states, from eastern Oklahoma to southern Missouri and northern Arkansas.

The Ozark National Forest seems a long way off from the muddy Mississippi, and the twisting roads are as breathtaking as the views.

Just outside Mountain View there's a restoration of an early Ozark town, with artisans continuing on the early trades.

Sparsely populated, the Ozark region is unknown to many people, conjuring up scenes of pioneer cabins among the vast hardwood tree cover, where life takes on a slower pace. Discover for yourself, the beautiful scenery within its rolling landscape.

Fall in the Ozarks:
Foliage in the Arkansas Ozarks typically occurs during the last week of October or the first week in November. But it all depends on weather conditions. Rain in September and cool nights in October usually produce the best displays.

Ozark Mountains:
The Ozark Mountain Region of north central Arkansas and south-central Missouri is a popular vacation destination, although the vast expanse of the Ozarks keeps it relatively uncrowded, unpolluted, and unspoiled. Recreation and relocation information.

Top Ozark Tailwaters:
The Ozark Mountains of northern Arkansas are one of the most productive trout fishing locales in America. Trout fishers from around the world enjoy the fertile tailwaters of the White, Little Red, and North Fork Rivers.
