      A beginner friendly, tight network of trails. Not a lot of elevation gain/loss here, but be prepared for lots of exposed rocks and roots. The trail called Hobo would be the most difficult and technical trail here, as its a series of ups and downs on a hillside (starts at the bottom and ends up on top) that is mostly a rutted out and eroded trail that will get your legs burning and it has a few tricky line choices. The trail called "Gravity" is a one-way, downhill run that is quite a bit of fun, with fast berms and a few jumps. Also along the same lines would be "Roller Coaster", with its fast and furious descent with lots of berms and jumps, and a miniature rock garden as you exit it. "Elvis" is one of the older trails here, and in my opinion is probably the most fun of the trails here. It's a good mix of what Ben Geren offers.

      These trails differ from what you find in NWA, as these are an old school, hand cut variety. In total there are about 16 miles of trail here. Some of the trails in the lower sections near the disk golf course have a tendency to hold water, so please avoid these if it has rained much.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: City Managed

      Access Info:
      Most people park at the amphitheater off of McClure Drive at the top of the hill. Also, group rides generally meet here Tuesday evenings at 6 P.M. weather permitting. In the winter, bring your lights!
