Arkansas Mountain Biking in Pictures

Last week we posted a video on various social media portals. The video is a compilation of mountain bike photos taken around the state over the past few years. We have watched the gradual growth and change in the trail offerings in the state for over 20 years but recently, it’s exploded. Some of the comments on social media included not realizing that the state is as mountainous as it is. We are lucky to live in such a diverse state for outdoor recreation. Besides the Ozark and Ouachita mountain ranges, we have world-class flatwater floating in eastern Arkansas, moderate whitewater options that can dial themselves up to full-on pro-level whitewater with a decent rain. We host one of the largest (and coolest) rock climbing festivals in the world, 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell. We have hang gliding launches in our state parks, long hiking trails like the Ouachita National Trail, the Ozark Highlands Trail, and the Buffalo River Trail. Arkansas is home to 5 IMBA Epic mountain bike trails, the first National River, the oldest National Park, the longest bayou in the country, and world-class bicycle/pedestrian trails including the longest bike/ped bridge in the country build for that purpose.

We could go on…

For now, here’s the video, look for similar ones in the future featuring other outdoor recreation opportunities in the state.
