I absolutely love Burns. There is something for every skill set out there. The green and yellow trails can get quite muddy after a rain, so take that in mind.
My advice for anyone on their first ride- park at the BMX track and ride the green trail across the street. That will take up up the hill and eventually to a couple of lookouts. Once at the top, you will find a rockpile- there is an "decommissioned" downhill course there. You can still ride that course, but beware of the platforms.
The trail will take you back across the street and wind through some low lying area (again, beware of deep mud) and back uphill. This part rocks! It is about a mile long of straight downhill. After you are done with that, you will find more green blazes on your right, or you can call it short and continue on that paved path and past the RV park. Hook a left and you will find yourself back at the BMX lot.
Anyone looking for a place to ride in central AR should check this place out first. Disclaimer- this is a shared park, and you will run in to horseback riders. Please be kind and yield.
