Overview: Established in 1989, the Huckleberry Mountain Horse Trail provides 37.3 miles of trail for multiple uses. Originally designed for horseback riding, the trail now provides recreation opportunities for hikers, off-highway vehicles (OHVs) and mountain biking. Winding valleys framed by rugged mountain bluffs give way to spectacular views of the surrounding area. The trails meander through numerous creeks which provide water for thirsty horses. Pond locations not adjacent to the trail are designated by signs and blue arrows. Six trail crossings are located along Big Shoal Creek. These crossings can be difficult during times of high water. Each trail crosses several gravel roads with portions located along old logging roads and open forest roads. These roads allow visitors to access the trail system from many locations. Backcountry trails are rugged and remote. Trails vary in difficulty from easy to strenuous. Bulletin boards are located at many trail access points with a trail registration box. For monitoring purposes and your safety, please be sure to sign in at registration boxes. Camps include: Sorghum Hollow Horse Camp, The Old Walnut Tree Camp, The Huckleberry Camp, and Quarry Camp. Trails: Huckleberry Mountain Trail (18.8 miles. This is a long loop so you may consider doubling back, depending on your available time), Bell Springs Loop (6.6 miles. An easy loop trail great for shorter rides with relatively level terrain), & Apple Loop (12.2 miles. This loop provides relatively easy riding terrain for OHVs along existing forest roads and old logging 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.
