Lots of short tough climbs, ridge-line flow, technical rock drops, and great lake views. Just a couple minutes from Historic Eureka Springs, Arkansas, an awesome place to ride and hang out. Also Leatherwood boast's the only 'true' natural feature downhill in the area. This system host's the annual Fat Tire Festival, one of the 'premier' mt bike festivals in the mid-west and south.
