Review: Pretty damn awesome! Well constructed and nicely maintained. Waterwork trail is flowy and fast. LOVE the table tops on Cat's meow. Northwoods trail has a lot of awesome rock gardens and the black diamond was extremely challenging.

Review: There is something out there for everyone. Want old school single track, Cedar Glades will fit the bill and when you have had enough just of that ride over to Northwoods for some fast flowy trails or hit the table tops for a little air time and if you really want some hang time check out the black diamond jump trail.

Review: A great mix of trails! The climbs were challenging but not discouraging. Had to ride these trails two days in a row with my Florida crew!

Review: Great local IMBA designed playground. Nice bombing downhill on Lucky 13 and fun technical descent on End of the Rainbow. Sections all a little short but it's nice you can connect to Cedar for a longer XC type ride.

Review: Amazing fun! I am sort of an intermediate rider and we had 2 newbies with us for our group ride. Everyone enjoyed these trails. Downhills are so well done. Just hold on and grin!

Review: Top notch trail system in Hot Springs, AR! Northwoods provides something for every skill level and has some of the best single track in the southern United States.

Review: This is a great mix of flow and singletrack trails. The description should be updated because it is about 14 miles now with a mixture of 20% black, 40% blue, and 40% green. It has three small lakes and three dams that create some great waterfalls. It is also connected to Cedar Glades Park trail system with adds another 10 miles of trails to the system.

Review: What great set of new trails. I drove in from Jonesboro and had a great time. I also used the zigzag trail to connect to the Cedar Glades loop and rode it also.
