Overview: This is one of those trails where you can really hammer on. Climbing is almost non-existent and the course is hard packed and very little in the way of loose rock and such. There is nothing really technical out there other than the fact that it is very tight and twisty, there are a few sandy areas. If you are looking for a trail that has some great scenery and you just want an easy ride or maybe you want to just get out and blow the cobwebs out of the bike then this trail should do just fine. It stays within the confines of the park so bail outs are plentiful. The park itself sets on the banks of the Arkansas River so expect to find some really great scenery. I personally like this trail just for the fact that you can go fast and fluid on it, just getting into the flow of the trail is very easy to do here. There are a few whoopee doo's out there and some tricks and skinny's to help keep the ride interesting.

Recommended Route: Start at the pavilion on the east side of Hwy 59 and do the trail in a counter clockwise direction.

Rating: This trail is for everyone, the whole family can enjoy this ride.

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.
