Mountain Biking Cedar Lake Trail

***   Add a review
#39 of 64 mountain bike trails in Oklahoma
#6,475 in the world

The trail hugs the shoreline and completely encircles Cedar Lake. This 3 mile loop of trail offers an array of opportunities to day hikers and bikers who want to view waterfowl and wading birds which frequent the lake. No big hills, and just technical enough to be challenging for even the best rider.

From Cedar Lake Trail, you can access the Old Pine Interpretive Trail as well as the Horsethief Springs Trail. There are three ascents to the top of the Ouachita Mountain Range. A dirt road, a horse trail, and the hiking/biking trail. About a 7 mile trip one way by way of any of these three routes to the Ouachita Trail. Makes for a nice big challenging loop for the more experienced rider. Lots of other equestrian trails with some of them actually being pretty nice. Nice campground with with swim beach, showers, and electricity. Another little known system of trails in the Ouachita Mountains. It will take a three-day weekend to ride all the trails.

    This trail is located in Oklahoma, not Arkansas.
    The Cedar Lake Trail basically goes around the entire lake. Most of the trail is ride able with maybe a few places where you have to get off because of rocks or a downed tree. The trail seems to be well maintained and when we were out there last time someone had built a brand new bridge over the lake on the west most part of the lake. The trail does not have any really big climbs or big down hills. On the east and south sides of the trail it seems to be pretty flat with a few technical areas.
