Compton to Erbie
Vehicular travel on 2.6 miles of Newton County Road 19 out of Compton, Ar between the Hideout Hollow Trailhead and Erbie is not recommended. The road has sustained significant damage from spring rains and is not maintained. Washouts have made sections very narrow and many rocks are exposed. Erbie may be accessed from various roads from AR State Hwy 7 north and south of the Pruitt river access.
The gravel road into Kyles Landing is very rough. High clearance and 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.
Did You Know?
Did you know that over 400 Rocky Mountain elk live in and around Buffalo National River? In the early 1980s elk were relocated to the Buffalo River region to replace an eastern elk subspecies that was extirpated in the 1800s.
