Erbie Put-In

Erbie is 5.2 miles down a nice gravel road. This is an easy launch area to get to. On the way to the launch/camping area are a few trails and the Parker Hickman cabin is just past the put-in. We have friends that live in the Erbie area and its one of the most peaceful tranquil places around.

Visit our hiking page for more info about Hickman/Parker, Koen, BRT and the Pounds Trails.

Leave your shuttle car at Ozark for a 5.5 mile float or Pruitt Landing for a 7.6 mile float. You will do about 2 miles an hour. A little fast if the water is higher, slower if the water is lower.
