      The Arkansas Hills trail system includes the trails around the S-Mountain, spreading north-east in a stacked loop system with the easier trails closer to town and the more advanced trails further out.

      These trails are mostly open year round and often best winter riding in the area when other areas are snowed in.

      Watch for rattle snakes during the summer.

      The system passes through Forrest Service, BLM, and city managed land.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Shuttleable: YES
