The Buffalo National River and surrounding National Forests and Wilderness Areas are great for spring time canoeing and year round hiking.
To the west, the Buffalo National River begins as a trickle in the Boston Mountains. It flows 135 miles to the east through the Arkansas Ozarks and into the White River.
In 1972, the Buffalo was designated a national river. Hiking or riding in the area, you'll pass through hollows used as hideouts for guerrilla bands during the Civil War. Many miles of double-track fan out over the hills on each side of the river.
Hot Springs National Park has numerous thermal springs that are also very popular, although the area tends to overdo commercialism.
Well before the first pioneers reached Arkansas, the Eureka Springs area was considered sacred ground by Native American tribes; who believed it to be a Great Healing Spring.
