Overview: This trail can be flooded by the lake after heavy rains so check with some locals before heading up that way. The trail is fast and fun, it is all pretty much single track. As far as climbing goes there really is not much in the way of extended climbing on this trail there are a few steep little climbs that a person can get over with a few hard turns on the cranks. The downhill's are about the same, they are fast but not extended. It does seem like you go downhill a lot more then up but that might just be me. The trail is well packed but has places especially at the beginning where you will encounter some loose rock and such. As you get closer to the lake the trail really begins to smooth out, this area is great for the big chainring. It is not too tight or twisty so a person could probably come out here and really do some hammering. There are a couple of creek crossings and few areas where the trail can trip you up but as far as technical I wouldn't say it is not all that technical of a trail. Toward the end of the trail there are a couple of whoopee do's to look forward to. The area has some really scenic places so be sure to bring a camera.

Recommended Route: Starting from 175 go toward Hwy 201 and take the trail in a clockwise direction.

Rating: I think this trail would be good for almost anyone as it is not to technical nor are there any big climbs involved. As I stated above there are a few places to watch out for but a novice rider can always get off and walk these and there are not that many of those areas out there. It also stays pretty close to the road so bail outs are available.

Arkansas Trail Rules

Ride Open Trails: Respect trail and road closures — ask a land manager for clarification if you are uncertain about the status of a trail.

Leave No Trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. Don't cut switchbacks. Be sure to pack out at least as much as you pack in.

Control Your Bicycle: Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all bicycle speed regulations and recommendations, and ride within your limits.

Yield Appropriately: Riders yeild to foot and horse traffic. Riders traveling downhill should yeild to ones headed uphill, unless signed for oneway or downhill traffic only.

Never Scare Animals: Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you.

Plan Ahead: Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.
