Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This network of loop trails features spectacular river views and a historic old homesite. The loop around the Collier Homestead is ideal for motorists who want to take a short break from driving on U.S. Highway 65. River View Trail passes through woodlands, skirts open fields, and crosses a couple of creeks as it climbs up a ridge to several overlooks. Gnarled cedar trees frame the views of the river far below.

Use caution where rocks and moss could cause a slip of the foot. An intersection at 0.9 mile presents an optional route for persons with limited time or endurance."

The highlights in this trail system are the entire River View trail and the Collier homestead. On a hot summer day, they're the ONLY bright spots. Luckily the River View trail connects to the homestead, making for a nice out-and-back from the visitor's center. The Rock Wall trail is so named because of a very long, but very crumbled rock 'wall' that looks more like a neatly-made pile of rocks. It is hot and buggy in the summer months, as are the Buck Ridge and the connector trail. The connector trail, which happens to be the easternmost section of the Buffalo River Trail, seems to get very little use and even less maintenance, which means there'll be some log-hopping along the way. Going from the homestead to the BRT can be a little tricky as it is poorly signed. Head right at the roadway and keep a close eye on the woods for a sign of a break.
