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.

The Overlook Trail loop (about 1.3 miles) at the Buffalo Point Campground (Buffalo National River, Marion County) is an enjoyable and not-too-challenging walk with a cool overlook of the river.

The net elevation change is only about 200 feet. The trail starts at the same area as the Indian Rockhouse Trail.

Entrance to the Indian Rockhouse Cave

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.
