Summary:
This trail is right at 8 miles of single track (according to my GPS). There is a bailout around 5.5 miles for a shorter ride. It's in really good shape with very few rocks. Watch out for tree roots, though. It's relatively flat, and a good trail for beginners. It flows well and experienced riders can carry a quick pace. To get to the trailhead, turn right after passing the entrance to the park and go over the speed bump. Turn right into the first parking lot.

Summary:
I've been riding this trail for the past couple of weeks - it's in great shape right now. The Springhill Classic bike race was held here a couple of weeks ago, so the weeds are down to a minimum. The profile for this trail looks a little dated, as the total trail length is now about 9.5 miles. The "new" section goes west under the Highway 59 overpass. As mentioned in the other reviews, this ride is pretty flat but very twisty. Watch for sandy corners down towards the river, about 4-5 miles into the ride. This is my first year on the MTB - I hope the trail is passable the rest of the summer since the canopy of trees will keep you as cool as possible during hot Arkansas summers.

Summary:
I enjoy this trail. It is mostly in and out under a heavy canopy of trees. not a lot of climbing, nor downhills. The one major problem in late summer and fall is spiders! they make large webs across the trail and wait. Nothing takes the fun out of a ride than a spider crawling on your face!

Summary:
This trail was pretty fun. It has been cleared up a bit due to recent race activity. not terrible technical but can definately be a fun place to push the limits of speed on a windy trail. Overall and enjoyable ride, especially for those that don't quite consider themselves a pro

Recommended Route:
the first portion of the trail is windy in and out of trees, when the trail crosses the first paved road, it becomes less windy and more speed, in grassy fields and open spaces.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
womble trail in Mt. Ida A MUST
Fianna Hills,... a jawbreaker
Southside High...No longer exists

Summary:
Horrible. Overgrown with stinging stickers, brush and fallen trees. Apparently gets no traffic or trail work. Locals say conditions are better in winter, but the trail is usually closed then. Low quality.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stans in Fayetteville (now closed)
Miners Rock at Leatherwood (now closed)
Southside HS Ft Smith (now closed)
