Lost Valley is a nifty little trail in the Ozarks. It offers a lot and asks little from its patrons. I had time for only one hike, so I had to choose between this and the crag, but I am glad I chose this one....More

It’s not a particular time of year they just have to have a lot of rain. You can follow the Buffalo Outdoor center to give you water levels and rain amounts. There are so many beautiful views worth seeing.
