We went and rode this morning. It was a pretty nice ride There are 2 separate loops(they don't actually loop all the way around, but its not a true out and back either) on either side of the lake. Total of 7 miles if you ride both. Both sides start with pretty decent climbs and continue to have a gradual incline all the way. The way back (on both sides) was great. Obviously much less climbing and you can really get moving. They have also built a loop inside a pine forest, so you really have to test your skills winding through at a decent pace and keeping upright. Overall, the trail is pretty technical throughout. The scenery is great- beautiful little lake. We ran into the builder (Dan/Dave Justice) and he said they were working on another loop. Super nice guy, and It appears that he has put a countless amount of hours into building this trail, so I'd say go give it a shot.

Summary:
PINEY LOOP- 4 mile out and back loop:

To access the trail head go back out to the road, turn right, cross bridge and the trail head is on the right. This trail is rated intermediate for mountain bikes and easy for hikers. The trail follows the lake north and goes by many great rock formations. You will cross the dam where you will get a wide view of the lake and a good place to spot eagles. From the dam the trail enters the woods, turns left from the lake loop and climbs up into a great pine forest. From there the trail loops around back to the main trail for the return trip.



EAGLE VIEW TRAIL- 4 mile out and back with three loops:

The trail head starts just behind this sign. Start up hill and follow the markers. This trail is rated intermediate to strenuous for mountain bikers and easy for hikers. Eagle View trail follows an old service road out to Lake View Overlook. From there it heads into the woods and climbs to the Eagle View Overlook. Watch your children as the bluff is fifty feet tall. This is also a great place to spot eagles. To the left of the overlook is the upper loop and to the right is the lower loop. The lower loop has some of the best scenery in the park as it passes under towering bluffs and beautiful rock formations. The lower loop is recommended for experienced mountain bikers as it has some very technical sections. Both loops head back to the main trail for the trip back.



LAKE LOOP TRAIL- approximately 5 miles:

This trail connects the Piney Loop and the Eagle View loops and continues all the way around the lake. The trail can be accessed from the back of either Piney or Eagle View loops. This trail is rated difficult for hikers and not yet recommended for mountain bikes. As soon as we can get enough volunteer help we will make this loop great for mountain biking.This trail will access very large rock formations, popular with rock climbers, and remote wooded areas. Moore’s Creek will have to be crossed and can be a wet crossing depending on the season.

Recommended Route:
I recommend that you do it all. We are all the time adding trail and updating our map. You can get a copy of the map from lincolnarkansas.com click on the Lincoln Lake tab.

Recommended Route:
Both sides start with a climb, so either one.
