Meet at 11 am at the Buffalo Point Ranger Station at entrance of park, about 7 miles south of Yellville on Hwy 14. Rick Hinterthuer will interpret Indian Rockhouse Trail.

Rick writes: “Indian creek is one of my favorite hikes in Arkansas featuring both a large variety of flowering plants and a similarly large array of geological features including caves, sinkholes, glory holes, sculptured dolomite bedrock and the second largest bluff shelter in the Ozarks. It is a 3 mile National Park loop trail of medium difficulty. The hike will take approximately 4 hours.”

Bring lunch and water.

If anyone is interested in camping that night or getting a cabin in the area for Sunday night, he will be willing to lead a hike to Bias Bend and Rush on Monday.
