This trail has it all. Counter-clockwise the trail starts with a short, well-designed climb before miles of rolling ridgeline riding. Once you think you've had enough of that a short downhill takes you to the lake where you are sandwiched between rock bluffs and shoreline. A trail unlike any other.

       Absolutely awesome classic cross country trail...nothing terribly challenging just fast and flowing with great views of the lake.

       Trailforks says this is bidirectional but the sign at the trailhead says bikes must go counter clockwise. Still a fun trail. Definitly on the XC side but still fast flowy and fun.

       Stunning trail. Very flowy. Bring a picnic and eat lunch halfway by the lake

       Says 1700ft climbing, but I only clocked 1,000. Fun trail though, fast and smooth

       I was very skeptical about this trail from the stats and rating, but I heard rave reviews from several people. Should have trusted my gut, this is not my cup of tea. Uppy-downy pedalfest with just a couple little payoffs. Great trail to bring the kids out for their first epic MTB adventure, but it's the bottom of my list for all the kajillion other amazing trails in NWA.

       Great trail! Loads of fun with some awesome scenery. Heads up though this is not a green trail. There are a few rocky sections and a lot of exposure on the last half of the trail. Newer rides may have some trouble and could find the drop to the side of the trail quite intimidating.
