This trail is Short but sweet the whole loop is about 7-8 miles. It's a mostly single track roller coaster trail. There are a lot of technical climbs that i still cannot complete. these are a great workout though. the downhills are pretty fat and they get really rough in places. And a lot of the trail is sharp flint rock. about 1/2 way through the trial there is a lookout point that hangs about 200 feet over the illinois river. It is awesome. once you get to the end of the trail you end up in the sparrow hawk village. It is a small community with a water tower shaped like a cross. you have to peddal through the village to the only dirt road leading there. here's where it gets really fun. this road is fast. it is straight downhill then a 180 turn, straight down and another 180 turn, It is a blast and can be dangerous if you're not careful. then pedal your way back on the dirt road to pavement then back to the parking lot.

Summary:
Once at the parking area, take the uphill trail to the left. Uphill is an understatement. This trail leads to the top of Sparrowhawk mountain to a ridge overlooking the Illinois River. The view is pretty spectacular. The trail follows the top of the ridge to the small neighborhood settlment of Sparrowhawk Village. This trail is in the Sparrowhawk Mountain Wildlife Management Area. The trail is relatively smooth with loose flintrock. If you are into hiking this is the trail for you. The downhills are short but fun when you get to them. The climbs are long and steep. The offroad portion of this loop is only around 2 miles until you reach the village. Once there, you have to ride through the neighborhood and take the dirt road leading to it back down the mountain. This dirt road down the mountain is steep (as far as roads go) and fast. Take a right when you reach the paved county road and it's about a 3 mile mostly uphill ride back to the parking area on this road. There is a brutal uphill section in the middle. The whole loop is 6.3 miles according to my computer. This trail is a nice been there done that trail, but that's about it. I would not recommend it unless you happen to be in the area visiting in-laws with nothing else to do. Skill level is intermediate for trail technicality but advanced for it's aerobic workout.

Recommended Route:
This trail is accessed by taking Highway 10 out of Tahlequah and turning East on road D0730 (not marked) at the Sparrowhawk sign. The parking area is on the North side of the road maybe 1/8 of a mile down this road.
