Mountain Biking Womble

*****   Add a review
#6 of 205 mountain bike trails in Arkansas
#144 in the world

A 37-mile singletrack that rolls east-west along an Arkansas mountain ridge, following the course of the Ouachita River. The trail begins at one North Fork Lake and ends at Lake Ouachita. It pass through the thick hardwoods and dark pines of the Ouachita National Forest, opening occasionally to spectacular bluffs above the river. This is rolling terrain - ranging between 1,000 and 1,600 feet in elevation - but it all adds up. 5-10 hours of riding and 6,000 feet of climbing. It crosses roads at regular intervals, giving new riders an opportunity to bail out if the trail proves too much for them. Considered an IMBA Epic. The Womble is complete, marked with white triangles, milage markers, and signs. It is shared hikers.
