A nice walk along a river
May 2019 • Solo
This is a simple 4-mile out and back trail that takes about two hours. It follows an old railroad grade, so it is generally flat and easy walking, except where it goes around a missing bridge, and at the Buffalo River where you can go down to a beach on the river. These spots can be a bit slick when muddy.

The trail is on a raised fill above the Buffalo River, with bluffs above the trail most of the way. The trail provides great views of the river, is shady, and provides access to where the railroad once bridged across the river. It is a nice walk and normally there are very few travelers, so you feel like the trail is yours. Along the trail are also a few stone culverts and other structures left over from the railroad days.
