Overview: We have not been to this trail but from what I hear it is a pretty technical trail. The following is from MTBProject.

If you're looking for a backcountry trail experience but don't want to go too far out of Fayetteville, check out the trails on Mt Kessler. More fit and experienced riders will find technical riding with climbs/descents and tight singletrack.

Recommended Route: Not sure on this.

Rating: From what I have read and hear that this trail has some pretty technical sections. Probably not a good place for a novice and beginners may have some trouble. MTBProject lists the trail as a black diamond.

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.
