The Wolf Pen Gap Trail is a 41-mile network of trails developed and maintained for mountain bikes and off-road vehicles. It is a mix of short sections of gravel road, abandoned double-tracks, and newly constructed single-track. Difficulty ranges from easy to extreme. The trail network encompasses the drainages of Board Camp Creek and Gap Creek. Stream crossings add some excitement to this ride, especially along the northern perimeter of the area. Take some time to enjoy the panoramic views along the trail. These trails are located 12 miles northeast of Mena, just north of the Caney Creek Wilderness.

I have been riding at Wolf Pen Gap for around 6 years. There have been many improvements over the years. The trails are for beginners to expert riders. They have installed changing stations at the trail heads w/bathrooms. The trails can get very technical and steep, but the views are awesome. I would recommend staying at Sugar Creek Lodge, Roger and his family are nice people.(google Mena ar. lodging) Please, if you go and ride the trails they are none directional, so do the ER in Mena Ar. a favor and wear the proper riding gear. Oh one more thing, I see so many people on the expert trails that don't know how to get off the trail. Some of the expert trails start of very simple with small hill climbs and steep switch backs but when you get to the top it will be almost straight down. The trails are marked pretty good if nobody has hit the signs.

Excellent trail for ATVs and dirt bikes. A great outing for family riding on the "easiest" trails. Most of the knucleheads play on the more difficult ones. Beutiful landscapes and mountain veiws are abundant. Plenty of whoops even on the easy trails. Lots of fun.
