Mountain Bike! Ozarks

Everything written about Snowball Loop is entirely false.
There are not 19 miles of trails as written, but only about 4 or 5 maximum. Of those trails, they are 4-wheeler trails also used by horses and the ruts make the trails unpassable by bike.
On page 3, it says go to the Buffalo River Outfitters and a trailhead is there. It is pedestrian only and if you ask about mountain bikes in the store - they will be stern about the pedestrian only aspect of their precious trails.
If you are in this area, leave the bike at home and just float the area in a raft, canoe or kayak - it is by far the superior way to get a workout and see the beautiful sights of the Buffalo RIver.
