I take my grandchildren to this. We don’t always do the cave but they enjoy panning for gems and doing the cave crawl. They also have a trail.

There are hiking trails about five miles south of Mystic Caverns at the Buffalo National River which are open. Our only hiking trail was closed many years ago after an ice storm.
