Mountain Biking Bench Trail

***   Add a review
#77 of 190 mountain bike trails in Arkansas
#5,805 in the world

The trail is now a route through a woodland that teems with large trees and wildlife, Fern Lake, remnants of historic springs, and steps that were a part of this early resort development are still visible. It is level in most places and offers views from the mountain, especially during seasons from late Fall to early Spring.

    Going CCW doubletrack with a few fun, bumpy downhills and climbs

    Great trail for beginners! Many scenic views off the mountain. Evenly flat as it is uphill. I don't recommend going when it has rained perviously, many muddy areas that grab your tires. But overall, great trail. ☺

    Just a chill ride on an old road bed with a few rocky areas. great views and old forrest. This park has potential for an epic singletrack.

    This is a nice quaint little trail with some interesting history. The trail starts out at the gazebo and does an entire loop around the mountain. The trail is pretty flat and wide, there is not really anything to get in your way unless a tree has fallen across the trail. There are really no big climbs here or technical stuff but there are some really great views of the river valley. For more information go to www.mtbark.com* Review edited 8/18/2012
