Review: This is a great trail system. You can try a ride of any size, ranging from a couple of miles to The Back 40. It is usually pretty loose, but that just contributes to the back country feel. Trail style also varies greatly, and as a result the trails range from flow trails to rooty, ledgy, unmaintained singletrack.

Review: Great park with a variety of trails. Everything from beginner to advanced. Much fun to be had here. Beats anything in the LR area for sure. Well worth the drive north. Pack a lunch as you will be riding the whole day.

Review: What a great, scenic and challenging ride. Part of trail goes along a bluff and you actually ride on rock with rock ledges over you. Some sharp rock edges out there so watch the tires. Had a fun time on this trail.

Review: I'm so impressed with this trail. We stopped by for an early morning ride before heading back to Missouri. The trail makes very good use of the terrain to pack in ample sustainable mileage in a small area. The rocky features and sharp switchbacks keep you on your game. And parts of this trail show real vision with route planning and construction, bucking the recent trend of "sanitizing" trails to accommodate all users. With a beautiful little park at its center, its no wonder Blowing Springs is listed as one of the top trails in the State. The only significant improvement I could see would be trail markers at intersections. The park does a good job with mileage posts but route finding for out of towners can be a challenge with spur trails leading off the main loops.

Review: Great Ride, rode this last weekend and it was fun. There are a few places that I wasn't absolutely sure which direction to go, but going with your instinct, you should be fine. If they still have the pink streamers, then just follow those. Plenty of room for speed and rocky!, Love the rocky areas and scenery. Also there are quite a few places to get air off of some rocks, couple to a few feet high. VERY WELL maintained trail. Plenty of parking. Not that tough of a trail, I'm just used to steeper, but definitely a great ride for a stop going down HWY 71. Will definitely ride again.

Review: This is easily my favorite trail in the NW Arkansas area. It is full of flowing singletrack and provides great views from both above and below the bluffs.
