HISTORY: Woods Boys Falls // The fall is named after Danny, Billy, Spanky, Kenny, and Landon Woods...the "Woods boys". They grew up and logged the forest through this area.
HISTORY: The Clubhouse // in 1936, Bernal Seamster, an Arkansas lawyer from Fayetteville, built a log cabin on this low bluff a half mile down from Big Bluff. Today all that remains is a stone chimney and some piers, but the original structure had two rooms separated by a hallway with an open porch on the edge of the bluff. Seamster and his male friends would come out on weekends to swim and fish in the Buffalo River calling it,,,the clubhouse.
This bushwhack starts about 3.5 miles down County Road 19 southeast of Compton. I went to hike out to McFerrin Point once before years ago, but it was the middle of summer and the faint trail was completely hidden in deep grass and shrubbery. I had a much easier time finding the faint path in the dead of winter.
