This trail follows the bottom of the Buffalo River Valley and has many intersections with other trails in the area, which it can be combined with for lengthier runs or backpacking trips. It's a rough dirt trail and trekking poles are recommended. It is a favorite trail for horse riders and passes three old homesites.
