Celebrate the 50th anniversary of America's first national river by becoming a 50-Miler!

In honor of Buffalo National River's 50th anniversary, the park challenges you to log 50 miles of physical activity at Buffalo National River in 2022. You may conduct your activities anywhere in the park throughout the year, and every finisher will earn a certificate and patch. Activities should be self-propelled: walking, running, hiking, biking, swimming, and paddling all count towards the 50 mile goal!

Buffalo National River will be hosting special events all year long, so be sure to visit our 50th anniversary webpage and Calendar of Events to learn about ways you can get involved!

Below you will find mileage log form that you can use to track your miles, or you can make your own log for submission. Once you complete your 50 miles, please email your completed form(s) to buff_events@nps.gov or mail to:

Buffalo National River
50-Mile Challenge
402 N. Walnut Street, Suite 136

A certificate and commemorative patch will be mailed out monthly to participants who complete the challenge. You have until January 31, 2023 to submit completed logs. Please call the Buffalo Point Ranger Station at (870) 449-4311 with any questions. Happy trails!
