One scenic vista follows another as SR 7 winds through the Arkansas Ozarks, a rugged region characterized by flat-topped mountains and valleys created by rushing streams. The Buffalo National River—so designated to preserve the natural environment—is overarched in spots by massive sandstone bluffs. The clear water offers great fishing for bass, perch and catfish.
