Shady Lake Trail Updated
It has been a really long time since I last rode at Shady Lake so we took a trip out there to see how the trail was holding up. I was very surprised to find the trail was in really great shape with the exception of some road construction on the southeast side near the dam that has pretty much wiped that section of the trail out. You can still follow the trail but you will have to ride on the road for about 50 yards to get back on the trail.
When we were there we had just had a few days of some really heavy rains and the water falling over the spillway was in true form. There are a few places where the trail could use a little work but overall it was in really good shape.
I updated the information on Shady Lake and added some pictures, a video, and for the first time I have added pictures to the Google Map and Google Earth so that you can see where the pictures were taken.
If you get the chance and your going to be in the Mena area this is a great spot to camp, hike, swim, and ride. Shady Lake is only 3 miles long but Viles Branch trail is located with in riding distance and it connects to Athens Big Fork, Little Missouri, Brush Heap Loop, and Eagle Rock all of which can be gotten to from Shady Lake for days of riding adventures.

Womble Video Added
I have added a video on the Womble Trail. This new video is of the section between Hwy 27 and Hwy 88.
Fairly easy section of the Womble until you get near the lake overlook and then you have one pretty steep and loose climb ahead of you but take heart because there is one really fun down hill waiting you as well as a great view of the lake. From there it is all pretty easy riding to Hwy 88.
