    Need help choosing MTB/family vacation destination in AR

    I'm from Memphis TN. We have very flat trails here and I'm seeking something different for our vacation at the end of May '17.
    I'm bringing my family(that doesn't mountain bike) and we need a nice cabin to relax in. Something maybe on a lake with all the modern amenities.
    I really want to ride some downhill flow trails, like something lift accessed or shuttled.

    1. Awesome cabin for happy family
    2. Downhill/flow trails for happy Dad

    Anyone know of anything specific? Any help would be very appreciated. I know it's only a month away, sorry!

    I would suggest maybe Mountain Harbor. It is west of Hot Springs on Lake Ouachita. The Vista Trail system is there. (I would post a link, but my post count is not high enough yet.) Or you could stay on Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs. A lot of family stuff to do there, and cedar glades park has a trail system. I believe the womble trail isn't too far from there. Have fun this summer!

    You might consider the Iron Mountain trails at Lake DeGray in Arkadelphia. The national Marathon XC championship will be held there May 6-7th, and they had an Enduro Race there a couple weeks ago. The Womble is one of our IMBA Epic trails so make the trip if you can. Vista trail on Lake Oauchita is one to consider as well.
    At what point did you decide you needed more than 1 gear?
