Mountain Bike! Ozarks

Awesome dirt biking! Great variety of skill levels. Good sized area.
I explored almost all the official trails on my dualsport motorcycle. That is all 27 miles of outer loop A, about 75% of inner loop B and 2 of the 4 connector trails. The variety of trails and scenery were excellent. I'm glad I had this trail guide with me--it is very thorough and seemed accurate. Even on a Saturday, we only ran into 3 other groups out on the trails. I even spotted a black bear briefly before he scurried off into the woods. One thing I'll mention is that although the trail guide is aimed at the mountain bike crowd, in my opinion, much of these trails are unrideable on a bike. Of course, I'm not as hard-core with a mountain bike as some, but with the grade, the size of the rocks, etc, I'd be carrying my bike up a most of the climbs and end up over the handlebars on many of the descents. There are some sections that would be fantastic on a bike, though. For lunch, be sure to head up north of the trails to Combs, AR. There is a tiny gas station/store/cafe. Good eats and plenty of local charm.
We had a awesome time... We found a 30 ft water fall. old rock cabin, on the blue trail....
