Mountain Biking Chicken Dinner

Chicken Dinner is a brand-new (as of winter 2016/17) 2-mile singletrack trail that connects from Sweet Dreams in the Arkansas Hills Trail System and runs down to the dirt road near the railroad tracks. Professionally built by Tony Boone & Co, this is a masterpiece of berms, jumps, rollers, tables, rhythm sections, some chunk, and tons and tons of flow! Chicken Dinner has become an instant classic!

    Super fun trail with plenty of tights turns, berms, small jumps, rocks, and a few tabletops. Great for all skill levels, experts will go faster and rail the berms. Still not too hard for a beginner at slow speed. I would be happy riding this trail all day, just not up.

    Terrific flow trail with some small jumps and berms mixed in. Has a little gnar up top but nothing tough. Nice flow on this trail and a hoot to do fast.

    Chicken Dinner is a flow trail that even has a little rock garden action at the top! It flows well for a lot of the way, has nice berms - but not the huge swooping kind. There are opportunities for air but no big jumps - this is an intermediate trail. The terrain is not very steep so it isn't troubled by significant braking bumps. The dirt is a bit stony and rocky so it's not all smooth but it won't shake your eyeballs either.

    Cross country flow at it's finest! This isn't a legit DH flow trail, but rather a rolling XC trail with incredible berms and playful features sprinkled throughout. A singletrack work of art!
