Mountain Biking Cedar Glades Trail

*****   Add a review
#19 of 205 mountain bike trails in Arkansas
#795 in the world

Newest member of the Ouachita area trails. It was built by Hot Springs Bicycle Assoc. after Water Works trails was closed due to the terrorist attack on 9/11. The trail is very wel maintained and manicured by the HSBA so it is always a pleasure to ride. The trail itself is very smooth not really rocky or technical of a trail but still a lot of fun to ride. There is only one big climb here with swtichbacks that get you almost to the top. One thing I can say about the trail is that it has one of the fastest downhills around, its one of the things i look forward to when i get a chance to go over there. The rest of the trail meanders in and out of coves and small valleys with some tight areas of twists and turns along the way. A couple of small creek crossings and some nice open areas to get up some speed. There can be a few muddy spots after a rain but the HSBA is building some boardwalks over these areas. If you are in teh Hot Springs area take the time to ride this trail as I know you will be glad you did. (initially submitted by Kenny Davis)
