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.
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.
