    Ozark Mts Trip

    Me and some buddies are looking to go ride some trails in Arkansas over our spring break. We will probably stay around Hot Springs. Does anybody know any good trails around that area? Or must do things around there. We will probably be staying around 4 days at a place called catherines landing. Anyone stayed there? Thanks

    Should be tons of riding there. Unfortunately I cant point it out being Im from NEA. I can tell you though that if you'd like to get on some water during your trip you should check out Lake Hamilton.

    Cedar Glades is just outside Hot Springs & is a great place to ride. The Lake Ouachita Vista Trail (LOViT) isn't too far either and there's quite a bit of singletrack there. Just past that is the epic Womble trail. If you want to go a bit further south, there's Iron Mountain just outside Arkadelphia along the shores of Lake DeGray.

    Here's a good link to the mtb trails in Arkansas.

    When are you going to be in Hot Springs for spring break? There's actually a 6-hr mtb race at Cedar Glades on March 16th.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Cedar Glades is 5 minutes from downtown hot springs and is my favorite trail in central Arkansas. Its about 10 miles long if you do the entire thing.

    Iron Mountain is legit too. It's off of lake degray. Progressive Trail Design just finished 7 more miles of trail out their and includes a 1 mile downhill flow trail.

    The Vista Trails (LOVIT) off lake Quachita as supposed to be pretty sweet, but i haven't ridden there. It's out and back unless you have two cars with you.

    Womble is just off lake Quachita and is an IMBA "epic" rated trail. It's pretty XC oriented from what i understand, so if you're rocking a long trail bike, it could be a long day. again, this too is not a loop. 38 miles one way.

    Hope that helps.
