Earlier this year, I posted some pretty detailed information about the hike along the Buffalo River Trail from Ponca to Steel Creek. You can the entire trail notes here.
In that post I mentioned several water run-off areas that I thought would make pretty spectacular water features during times of high water.
Last weekend the Buffalo River Valley saw several inches of rain so we set out to check my gut on these water run-off areas – and they didn’t disappoint.
There are several along this stretch of trail – all are within about the first mile of this stretch of trail. So after a good rain, don’t hesitate to head out along this stretch of trail and see some of the
impressive water features.
One word of caution though, climbing up to the top falls here will take a fair amount of scrambling, and if the water's running well, that means it's probably plenty muddy as well. So be careful, and be smart, and don't do more than you feel comfortable doing. It looks pretty nice even if you never leave the trail.
