The Buffalo National River stretches approximately 150 linear miles across four counties – Newton, Searcy, Marion, and Baxter – in North Arkansas. Much of the terrain is wooded, steep, and rocky. However, in the middle section the river winds through open pasture lands, providing a rich diversity of scenery for the visitor. This is where we, the Lower Buffalo River Arkansas Back Country Horsemen, concentrate our efforts. Our service area begins at Mt Hersey on the middle Buffalo River (where our partners at Buffalo River BCH end their mission). From Mt Hersey, we work our way down river, past Woolum and Gilbert all the way to the Buffalo’s confluence with the White River. Our area includes three of the Buffalo River’s five primitive equestrian campgrounds, as well as one Wilderness area, The Lower Buffalo Wilderness. Riders in our area also have access to three popular commercial horse camps, Caney Mountain, Shelton’s Big Flat Getaway, and Saddle Valley. It’s a trail rider’s paradise, and we do our best to keep the trails open for everyone.

The best way to learn about us and the work we do to keep trails open is to come ride with us. You will have a good time riding on beautiful trails and will leave knowing you have made a difference in preserving those trails.
