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).

This beautiful 3-mile loop at Buffalo Point Campground in the Buffalo National River near Yellville (Marion County, Ark.) is a must-see trail.

The Indian Rockhouse Trail is wonderfully scenic with many great points of interest including sculpted bedrock, a waterfall, a former zinc mine, and the Indian Rockhouse Cave.

It is a vigorous hike with about 400 feet of elevation change, but it is well worth it.

Fuzzybutt Falls, Ozark National Forest

Fuzzybutt Falls (southwest Searcy County, Ozark National Forest) is a waterfall that I’ve always heard about (mostly because of the name) but had no idea what a great, easy hike it is to get to with a lot of bang for your buck along the way.

The hike, most of which is in the Richland Creek Wilderness, takes you by three waterfalls, follows along Falling Water Creek (one of my favorites) and ends at a great canyon with a uniquely named 16-foot waterfall that will definitely create a memorable experience.
