Buffalo River - Gilbert Railroad Trail

The Old Railroad Trail in Gilbert, is a great hike to do with kids.  At less than 4 miles in-and-out, this mostly flat trail has interesting rock walls, views of the Buffalo River, and large remnants of its not-too-distant railroad past.  I usually get my kicks by checking out the cacti and other amazing plants along this trail and skipping rocks at the river, but when I went with friends in Feb. 2013, we were directed by a friendly gentleman on horseback to a bobcat hiding in a tight crevice in one of the rock walls!

Crinoids!!! (right?)

Unhappy Bobcat

If anyone ever climbs to the top they will find the rocks we threw
