    Need South AK bike trail with camping

    I am driving from TX to SC for Christmas. I am taking the long route to revisit some old stomping grounds in East Tennessee. I want to make it a Mountain bike road trip, so I need a good trail system in south AK that allows car camping and is not too far off the beaten path.

    Thanks

    Isn't Southern Alaska going out of the way? Check Iron Mountain/ Lake Degray

    Iron MT and Cedar Glades are 2 of the best trail systems in central Arkansas (this is assuming you're not talking about a detour through Alaska, LOL). These are both in the Hot Springs area so you could hit some touristy stuff at the same time.

    I ride them both and would opt for Iron Mountain over Cedar Glades. Take HWY 7 North off I-30 at Caddo Valley and you will be there in less than 10 minutes. They just opened up 5 more miles of trail for a total of 17 and you can camp at Iron Mountain campground which is right around the corner from the trailhead.

    I consider Lake Ouachita Vista Trail (LOViT) a better choice. 9 miles east of Mt Ida on 270 is the Tompkins Bend campground sitting on 40 miles of great singletrack.
