Overview: The trail is all single track and in good shape. If a person did not know better you could hardly tell that this was a shared trail with horses other then the occasional hitching post areas and horse land mines left along the trail. The people who made this trail took some time and designed it well. There are three loops out here the Little Clifty Creek Loop (9 miles) then there's the Dutton Hollow Loop (3 miles) and the Bashore Ridge Loop (3 miles). There is also the War Eagle trail which is about 4 miles long and runs on the east side of Little Cliffty Creek loop. The trail system has some really scenic spots and a person could spend the whole day just taking pictures. The terrain is pretty hilly with a lot of ups and downs but the flow of the trail keeps you going and ready for more. There is really only one big climb and it is over near Piney road on the northeast side of the Little Clifty Creek loop. The trail is mostly rocky type soil about what you would expect from this area. The layout is good and has a smooth flow, there is a little ridge riding which I enjoy especially when it flows as well as this trail. If you get the chance to be near this trail I suggest you take the time and explore it.

Recommended Route: We normally start at the Piney Rd. trailhead and ride the Little Cliffty in a clockwise direction and then jump onto War Eagle and take it to where it intersects back with Little Cliffty and then back to the trailhead and then over to Bashore Ridge in clockwise direction and then do Dutton Hollow in a clockwise direction.

Rating: Most riders I think are going to like this trail. Some of the climbs might be a bit much to someone who is not well conditioned and the ridge riding near Piney Road might be a little unnerving for some less experienced riders. There is really nothing technical out there that would require advanced handling skills. If a person is in fairly good shape they will probably enjoy this trail.

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.
