Cossatot Mountains Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This entire 25-mile loop uses Forest Service roads. It is recommended for riders of all skill levels. The Cossatot Mountains are a narrow band of peaks on the southern edge of the Ouachita National Forest. Clear streams parallel the ride for three-fourths of its length. This trail is located 6 miles north of Langley on AR 369."

I just did the out and back to Tall Peak from Albert Pike Campground. Everything is double-track and the road up to Tall Peak is very rocky and I ended up doing a hike-a-bike up it. There were many areas where the inclines were a little steep or the gravel too loose, so be prepared to hike at least a few miles. There weren't many places to look out over the road to get a good view of things, and the lookout from Tall Peak was very hazy and I wasn't able to see much of anything. All in all it is a good challenging ride for a double-track.
