Buffalo River - National Park Region
The Buffalo National River is one of the few remaining unpolluted, free-flowing rivers in the lower 48 states offering both swift-running and placid stretches. The Buffalo National River encompasses 135 miles of the 150-mile long river. It begins as a trickle in the Boston Mountains 15 miles above the park boundary. Following what is likely an ancient riverbed, the Buffalo National River cuts its way through massive limestone bluffs traveling eastward through the Ozarks and into the White River.
Buffalo River National Park Headquarters are located in Harrison, Arkansas with the park visitor contact station; the Pruitt Ranger Station, located seven miles south of Harrison, Arkansas on Highway 7.
The Buffalo River ZIPLINE CANOPY TOUR
Guided zipline canopy tours originated in Costa Rica as a way for people to experience the flora and fauna that is unique to the dense leafy canopy of a rainforest. Our Ozark Mountain hardwood forest canopy has its own bird, plant, and animal life, which our guided tour is designed to introduce you to as you glide along from tree to tree!
From a structural standpoint, a canopy tour is a system of cables and platforms, wherein the participant "glides" or "zips" through the treetops while connected to the cable via a harness. A large wooden platform serves as a landing base in each tree that you "zip to." Our canopy tour facility was built in accordance with Association of Challenge Course Technology recommended guidelines.
