    Nice rails to trails trail probably the best I have been on. The scenery, tunnels and tresels are excellent as was the kiosk stations along the way explaining the history of the area. This is a ride for anyone looking for a very casual outing great for family and non biker friends, For more information please visit Mountain Bike Arkansas - www.mtbark.com
