Except for a short segment on Forest Service Road 1209 on the east side of this 37-mile loop, little technical skill is needed for this ride. Beginners can handle this ride if they are in good physical condition for the long climbs and distances. The Hurricane Creek Wilderness is a rugged scenic area at the eastern tip of the Boston Mountains. The Bostons were created when a high plateau eroded into a landscape of finger-lake ridges, long narrow valleys, and clear streams. You are now the lucky beneficiary, able to enjoy a ride full of long climbs and descents, fantastic panoramic views from windswept ridges, dips into quiet, peaceful hollows, and refreshing fords of clear Ozark streams. This trail is located 48 miles northwest of Russellville.

This was the best place I have visited in AR so far. Incredible Beauty! Like a mini-Grand Canyon. The stream is icy cold and the pools are perfect for a nice chilly dip. Also, I would recommend bringing some mushrooms and pot. It will blow your mind. Good Luck and always be safe.
