We wanted to put together some content of our hikes showing the points of interest with 360° photos. We want to let people have the opportunity to see how the hike will look before they go, and also let those who can’t get out and do it anymore see these places too.
If you want to do this hike yourself you can read more about my experience below.
The hike from the law water bridge at Ponca to the Steel Creek Campground is about 2 miles. I would rate it as moderate because there are a couple of steep areas and the trail is narrow in some spots. The elevation gain is about 400 feet as indicated on the elevation graph below.
There are some astounding views of the Buffalo River from the trail high above on the bluff line. I’m sure the views are even more spectacular when the leaves are off the trees and we’ve had more rain.
