Today's hike is going to be as tough as it is breathtaking. Located in the Ponca Wilderness, the loop starts over 2,200 ft, descends into the Buffalo River Valley on a steep and uneven trail, passes a grand vista into Hemmed-In Hollow and Hemmed-In Hollow falls, today's final destination. The trail will wind its way into boulders and bluffs, going through small waterfalls before being amazed by the 240' Hemmed-In Hollow Falls at the head of the canyon. This is one of the most scenic spots in the Ozarks. After a wonderful and tough 5.8 mile hike with 1,300 elevation change, we will be rewarded with some local sweets at Blue Mountain Cafe on our way back to Springfield, MO.
