arkansas riding????

hey guys, been hearing a lot about riding areas in the fayetteville-norther arkansas area can anyone filll me in!!!! i like to ride single track, climb hills, cross water, typical hare scramble type stuff!!! ive been riding at chadwick in missouri since i was a kid and was wondering if it is worth couple more hours driveing time to check out!!!!! thanks to anyone who helps out on this question!!!

YES! Check out White rock its SE of Fayetteville. I have been there 3 times and there is so much more to see. There are some really nice single tracks that go on for miles. :thumbsup:

are there rocks, any idea what kind of trail miles!! does it get crowed!!!!!

There are definitely some rocks there. They don't call it White Rock

for nothing. The main blue loop is about 16 miles long. However, it's

terrible unless you like wide open quad/jeep trails. There are some great single track

sections, but you need to know where they are and how to hook them together.

You should do the Enduro there this Sunday 3/19 and you'll see the single track.

Their is an ORV park owned by skyjacker outside of hot springs. It has alot of wider trails, but I think their is also some single track their. Thats All I know of.

If you are in the northeast section of arkansas let me know. I'll take you on my track then we can go ride the WMA that is about 5mi from my house. Where in Iowa are you. I have family in Des Moines.

im in des moines!!! what is wma?? looking at coming down there some time in may??? gonna be at chadwick this weekend though!!

Actually they live in Altoona, basically outside of des moines...small world, eh

WMA--Wildlife Management Area. It is about 10,000 acres that is owned by the Game and Fish but leased by a papermill. It has lots of open trails then some tight trails. I've been going up there for the last 4yrs and everytime I go up there I find new trails. Lots of mud holes in the spring and lots of dust near july and august.

I live in NE Arkansas...how about sharing where that WMA is? Would love to have something closer to home to ride rather than having to ride half way across the state to get to the trails.

no problem---batesville, where are you at...

I'm in Paragould. Batesville is 2-2.5 hours...still would be about the closest trails for me. There are a few near Sylamore and I've heard of some around Calico Rock but have never found good directions. Other than that we mostly go to Brock or such.

I used to ride somewhere up near paragould...all i remember is there was a bunch of sand and lots of trucks!!

There is a place called river ridge motocross between calico and norfork, but I haven't got to ride it yet. There is a trail near sylamore, but i haven't been on it either. I mostly ride on my track and on the WMA. With 3 kids I don't have much time for outings, so I have to ride close and on short notice!! I also ride up in Viola where my parents live, raced the Sturkie harescramble last year, that was a blast :thumbsup:

I'm in Little Rock. I just got a new 06 kx250f a week ago so I'm new to this whole scene. I have no clue where to ride. I'm from Blytheville and I go there to see my mom alot. Where are some good places to ride for newbies? Thanks!!

Of course I will vote for the WMA I spoke of before. You can make it as easy or hard as you want. Anywhere quads go I consider it to be easy for me to go, at the same time, there are alot of difficult areas to try if you want. I have about 3mi of trail and track on my place that I invite anyone to come ride, as long as you ride responsibly and have proper protection. (insert joke here! lol)

Here a a few pics of my track from last year...lots have changed since then more jumps, bigger air, more trails...again just a few pics.

i go to chadwick a lot, in your opinion is it worth the extra drive??

I live in Little Rock now but I'm from Blytheville. I'm new to this whole scene. I just bought an 06 kx250f a week ago and I still go up to NEA to visit my mom. Where are some good places to ride for newbies.....just to get used to my bike?? Thanks

who are you asking? I've never been to chadwick, I have some friends that go up there, I've heard it's gotten quite a bit more dangerous over the past few years. But, again, I've never personally rode there.

Wolfen Gap near Mena is fun also but it is all wide open trails.

I am new to the area also, but i live in Sallisaw OKlahoma, west of Fort Smith Arkansas. There is plenty of off-raoding riding and motorcross. Cheeck out, www.tulsadirtriders.com (local Tulsa riding club)
