This trip is going to be lead by Nancy and will be in the Dismal Hollow Area of the Ozark National Forest. The weather is looking like summer for Saturday, so make sure you bring your water shoes for a refreshing dip after a long day of backpacking at the camp site is going to be along the Little Buffalo River.
You can met will meet Saturday morning at the Casey’s in Ozark, Missouri, located at the intersection of US 65 and Missouri 14 at 0700 hours and carpool from there. Nancy will meet everyone at the convenience store in Jasper, Arkansas, which is right next to the Little Buffalo River bridge as you come into town between 0815 and 0830. We should be out of the wilderness by around 1500 hours on Sunday.
This trip will NOT be on trails and will be in a rugged and remote area, meaning fitness will be important. There are great views, amazing bluffs and waterfalls in this area, but the terrain is going to be steep, rugged and at times thick due to the remote area, so be prepared.
