Overview: If you are looking for a back country experience. We have not made it to this trail yet but I am hoping soon to take a few days and ride all I can.

“This is a large remote area with extremely limited cell phone coverage, plan ahead and be prepared so your experience will be an enjoyable one. Ride within your skill, it’s a long way for help. The steep terrain limits the availability of a wide range of skill and fitness level. Currently, most of the trails are for cyclists that have an advanced level of skill and endurance.

” The 35 miles of byways are divided up into 18 different trails with two trailheads and 35 information portals along the route.

“There is a total designation of 35 miles, about 9.6 miles of the system roads are open to motorized vehicles for connectivity. All of the trails have their own characteristics that make them special, such as the South Bench Trail. It has a single track that was hand built and follows a bench — great view in the fall when the leaves are off — of similar elevation creating a wave like trail wrapping around the head of drainages before it joins the Trail of Ancients.” - Harrison Daily

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.
