Horseback Riding in the North Central Arkansas Ozarks
It's a little bit of the past coming to life--the original way of traveling around the Ozarks Mountains is once again quite popular. Riding a horse through the Ozarks gives you a chance to reach places you could never go by car or even motorcycle. There are many designated trails in the Buffalo National River backwoods. It's a wonderful way to enjoy the scenery, the wildlife, the colors and scents of the Ozarks.
Along the Buffalo National River upper district, you'll find The Old River Trail, Cecil Cove Loop, Center Point and Sneed Creek Trails. The Buffalo River Trail winds through the middle district, and the Cook Hollow/Cow Creek Trail in the lower district is quite popular.
Campsite for visitors with horses are available, although they are fairly small. Upper River campsites for horse riders include Steel creek and Erbie. Woolum Campground in the middle district is a designated horse camp. Big Creek and Hathaway Gap Trailheads in the lower Buffalo Wilderness Area have horse camps as well.
There are regulations riders are asked to follow. Visit here for more information about riding the Buffalo National River.
