Back on June 1, I had an opportunity to again hike the Indian Rockhouse Trail at the Buffalo River’s Buffalo Point campground. It was a great hike.
The Indian Rockhouse Trail is a cool scenic 3-mile loop trail with a number of great features. In addition to the Indian Rockhouse cave, there is sculptured rock, a sinkhole, a Natural Bathtub, a waterfall, and an abandoned mine entrance.
This hike is a 3.8-mile loop in the Buffalo River’s Tyler Bend Campground area. (Tyler Bend is also home to the Buffalo National River Visitor Center.) It’s a pretty cool hike as you get to see some nice river vistas, the historic Collier Homestead, and a pioneer rock wall.
This loop is made up of the River View Trail, the Rock Wall Trail, and a small part of the Buffalo River Trail to connect the two.
The hike is moderately challenging with a net elevation change of about 300 feet. Most of this hike is along a ridge.
