The Lost Valley trailhead is located south of Ponca, AR about 1.5 miles on Hwy 43.
Winter is oftentimes an overlooked season for photography and hiking here on the upper Buffalo River. To me, it is one of the river's finest hours!
Usually, we Arkansans like our waterfalls surrounded by the pretty lime-green leaves and lush ferns of springtime. However, without those details begging for attention in a wintertime setting, this waterfall on the Lost Valley trail took center stage with the stark rockscape providing the perfect venue for its performance.
