    Lift Access coming to Arkansas?

    So someone on pink bike mention there were rumors of lift Access coming to Arkansas, like what they did at spider mountain in Austin TX.

    Anyone hear anything like that?

    Not sure about lifts, but they just opened paid shuttles at Lake Leatherwood in Eureka Springs from Slaughter Trail Guides.

    There is going to be a lift park at Mount Magazine. I would guess around 2021 or 2022.

    Yes. Itís happening at Mt. Magazine according to multiple PTD guys Iíve talked to as well as OORC folks I know. Evidently after survey, it has same vertical feet as Angelfire and there is rumor of a 5 mile downhill.

    Is there any update on this? I have heard it will be done in the next year or 2.

    That's what I've basically heard as well.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves folks. This is going to take a while just to get permission to build. This is Federal Land (the state park leases just the top). Once permission is granted, final planning will have to take place, funding, and construction. In the meantime, you'll have the new Monument Trails to go play on. https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/t...onument-trails
