Hemmed-In-Hollow Falls is a single drop waterfall located within the Ponca Wilderness Area of the Buffalo National River in northern Arkansas. The height of the falls is 209 feet, it is the "Tallest waterfall between the Rockies and Appalachians."<br />
<br />
The Falls are situated in Hemmed-In Hollow, a small valley closed-in on three sides by 200+ foot bluffs. <br />
<br />
For most of the year the flow over Hemmed-In-Hollow Falls is subdued. As one looks upward, the water breaks into thousands of individual water droplets. Wind swirling in the canyon causes the falls to continually dance about. During times of heavy rain, typically during late Winter or early Spring, water spills heavily off the cliff. <br />
A rare opportunity for a floatrip on the Buffalo National River during the fall.  The river is usually nearly dry this time of year.  The Buffalo National River flows free over swift running rapids and quiet pools for its 135-mile length. One of the few remaining rivers in the lower 48 states without dams, the Buffalo cuts its way through massive limestone bluffs traveling eastward through the Arkansas Ozarks and into the White River
