I rated this trail high, not because of it's technical challenge, but because of its overall enjoyment and beautiful scenery. The trail is not technical at all, unless you count a couple of long, steady uphills. This is gravel double track or asphalt the entire loop. We were staying in Hot Springs so we actually started this trail at Paint Rock, about 6.5 miles from Hwy 25-70, along River Road. This worked out well, since the longest uphill was first when we were still fresh. Stay left at the intersection (Paint Mt. Rd) and begin the ascent. A well-maintained Forest Service road climbs steadily about 3 miles to Lone Pine Gap. Some absolutely beautiful overlooks on the way up. After catching your breath at the gap, begin a 2 mile downhill that will surely test your brakes...and your sense of daring. The gravel gradually gives way to asphalt near the bottom and soon you'll come to the intersection with Hwy 107. Turn right and its about 1.5 miles of fairly flat pavement before a right on Rollins Chapel Rd and another right towards Paint Creek campground. This is the part that wasn't mentioned in the listed trail description. The first mile towards the campground is a steady uphill, with few flat sections to catch your breath. Low gear was our savior and just when we thought we could go no further, we crested the hill and began a screaming downhill (asphalt, thank goodness) towards the campground. The campground has water and plenty of shady spots to rest. The four miles down Paint Creek Rd. was about as relaxing as you can get on a bike, a welcome relief after the previous climbs. This road is wide one-lane asphalt, with numerous pullouts. This stretch is continuous postcard scenery, with several spots to stop and rest, picnic, swim, and generally enjoy life. We got back to our car in about 2.5 hours with stops (measured closer to 14 miles than 13.6), and promptly headed down to the creek to soak our feet. A great way to spend a few hours.
