Mountain Biking Southside Horseshoe Bend Trails

*   Add a review
#102 of 190 mountain bike trails in Arkansas

There are signs placed along this trail. A great single track with a tough switchback on the upper end. The trail even crosses leigh avenue and proceeds off of the hill and winds up behind a local gas station. There are many trails like this in the area. Not all of them are marked. Be sure to bring extra tubes or tire patches!! Once you get on the trail, it is beautiful.

    The reviews below are correct. Target shopping center has been built on the south side of it now. The area is policed pretty well.

    If you're riding these trails, you are trespassing. Most of the trails have been destroyed by fill dirt from the Target down the hill being dumped here. The trails still remaining suffer from trash (from empty beer bottles to fridges) being dumped on them.

    Unless you enjoy the idea of going to jail, stay away from these trails. Not to mention most of the trails are now gone due to construction of a new shopping center. Not worth risking jail time for these lame 4x4 trails.
