Another trail building season at the Buffalo River is over with no actual building to report. This time it was all maintenance due to the private property and archaeological obstacles that remain. We lopped brush and removed all the fallen trees we could from the Wollum Ford to AR-14 – about 35 miles in all. Some big trees remain for the Park Service to deal with and a few other areas that need reconstruction were noted.
There was much-needed rain both weekends but most creeks are still pretty dry and the river itself looked like big puddles separated by long stretches of dry gravel.
