5 Miles Loop System 2.3 Total Climbing Miles 541' High 6.5% Avg Grade

Overview: The trail starts out pretty mild but after a bit you will run into some small technical areas a few little steep climbs and then it gets mild again as it meanders through the woods paralleling the rode that goes up to the state park. Even when you turn east and parallel Pinnacle Valley Rd the trail does not get to crazy. There is the occasional rocky area and steep little climb but nothing really awful.  When you make your turn north going away from Pinnacle Valley Rd that is when this trail will start to get a little more demanding. This part of the trail requires some technical skills as there are numerous rock gardens and the climbs are steep in places. This section reminds me a lot of some the Ouachita Trail sections I have been on. You will be going up and down the same hill numerous times on this section of Jackfork. If you are looking for a trail that has great flow to it where you can just get out and fly down the trail then this trail probably will not satisfy you. If on the other hand you like trails that test your technical skills, that are rocky and challenging and don't mind going up and down multiple times then this trail should fit the bill. The state park visitor center is just right up the road from the parking lot for the trail, you might want to step in there and talk to the folks and get yourself a map.

Recommended Route: We normally do this trail in a counter clockwise direction.

Rating: Not for the novice or the new beginner. A beginner with some cardio and technical skills should do alright out there. They may have to walk some of it and the trail is not that long and there are plenty of spots to bail out where the trail parallels the roads.

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.
