Six Finger Falls (Richland Creek Wilderness, Ozark National Forest)

Six Finger Falls (southwest Searcy County, Ozark National Forest) is a beautiful and unique waterfall formation on Falling Water Creek. It is also pretty easy to get to, just a few hundred feet from the road.

It is on Forest Road 1205 near the community of Ben Hur. It is on the edge of the Richland Creek Wilderness.

The Indian Rockhouse Trail is a very scenic 3-mile loop at Buffalo Point Campground (Marion County, Ark., near Yellville) in the Buffalo National River. Among the trail’s highlights are the Indian Rockhouse Cave, a waterfall, a former zinc mine, and Panther Creek.

The recent trail profile I did is at this link.

Here are some additional photos from my June 3, 2017 hike on the trail (and one from October 2016).
