Overview: When you leave the parking lot you will follow a trail for about 20 yards or so and you will come to a Y. Take the trail to the left and continue on through a small pine grove. You will come to the road again and see a trail directly across the road, if you want to do about half of the trail then head across the road and take the trail otherwise hang a left on the road until you come to another parking area, watch to your right and you will see a trail darting into the woods, this is the trail you want. This is a fun little trail and we ride it about once a month. The area where the trail is built is relatively flat compared to some other trails. Don't expect to find a lot of climbing out there about the only hard climb is what they call the Power Line Loop. There are a few tricky spots but someone with just a little bike handling skills should be able to get over these. For the most part this trail is pretty easy, it is mostly hard packed with some loose rock. The trail was built on a very small track of land so it can be tight and twisty in places. You can also find a few little spots out here to get some air. There are a few nice places to get in some scenic views one of which is at the top of Power Line hill, if you will watch to your left you will see a small trail heading toward the Arkansas River. If you take this trail it will bring you to some bluffs that overlook the Arkansas River. We call this little trail the Bluff Trail and if you continue on you will come out to a parking area where you can get another good shot of the river below. The Rock Quarry can be kind of nice for scenic shots as well.

Recommended Route: Going clockwise on this trail always seems to feel much better it just seems to have a smoother flow.

Rating: All riders even novice will probably like this trail. There maybe a few little sections out there where a new rider may have to walk. This is a good trail for a new rider to cut their teeth on. If you are a speed freak or if you like your trails with small climbs and descents then you should like 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.
