Mountain View Area

Mountain View, Arkansas itself hosts numerous cultural experiences, like the Bluegrass Festival held every year.

Along with an entertaining town square, the Mountain View area hosts a multitude of outdoor destinations, including: Sylamore Creek Trail System; Blanchard Springs Caverns; and Syllamo Mountain Biking Trails. 


Sylamore Creek Trail System

The North Sylamore Creek is located in the Ozarks of north central Arkansas, about 2 to 3 hours north of Little Rock and 45 minutes west of Batesville. The trail is a 23-mile point-to-point that features beautiful sandstone bluffs rising out of crystal clear North Sylamore Creek.

Blanchard Springs Caverns

Located in Stone County, approximately 2 miles off Highway 14 near Mountain View, the Blanchard Springs Caverns are some of the most spectacular and carefully developed caves found anywhere. 

Visitors enter a "living" cave where glistening formations like stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and flowstones are still changing.  These crystalline formations are the result of minerals deposited by dripping water.
