I had the pleasure of hiking one of the most picturesque sections of the Buffalo River Trail with my friend, David this past weekend. In this video, David shares an introduction to hammock camping based on his 5 years of hanging and light-weight backpacking.
The trail from Ponca, AR to Kyle’s Landing covers 10 miles of spectacular vistas and seasonal waterfalls in the creek valleys. We were fortunate to see and photograph a large elk herd in the Boxley Valley as well as 2 trumpeter swans before we began our overnight hike.
For those who might be interesting in hammock camping, I highly recommend the hammockforums.net website. It is run by friendly, helpful people eager to share their knowledge regardless of your experience level. Plus, the site is filled with pictures and videos of backcountry trips, gear reviews and all the best places to buy hammocks and hammock camping accessories.
