Parks Service Takes Long Look at Popular River Destination

Timothy Dennis

After spring flooding caused damage to trails at Lost Valley Recreational Area, resulting in its temporary closure, officials with the Buffalo National River worked through the summer to have the area reopen by Labor Day. Now, the National Park Service is taking a longer look at not only how to improve the area to prevent it from being again damaged by flooding, but also how to otherwise improve the popular destination.
