Trail Options

Aspen Ridge 

Granite domes rise out of the forest along the majestic Aspen Ridge. This expansive road system through remote pieces of the Arkansas Hills provides a variety of biking options. Mellower sections are great for families, but an extended tour will take some endurance.

Midland Hill/Fourmile Rec Area

The new hotspot for biking in the Ark Valley.  This area offers an incredible network of trails through pinon forest.  Especially unique to the area are the granite slab formations that create fun moves and challenging obstacles.  We can combine a number of trail sections to provide beginner/intermediate/or advanced options.

Methodist Mountain

What once was just a single beginner trail has now evolved into a network of trails that offer a variety of rides.  Our favorite part is the new flow sections that can all be linked up for a rad day of rollers and banked turns.  Note that this area is pretty exposed to sunshine, so it can get pretty hot on summer days.

Arkansas Hills

Spend a full day exploring two awesome trails in the Arkansas Hills. The new Cottonwood Trail may be our favorite ride in the area. Combine it with a full tour of the Backbone Trail for an action packed day and link up with Chicken Dinner flow trail. Expect some technical maneuvering through rocky areas. No significant climbs, mostly flowing up and down terrain.

Collegiate Peaks 

This is a scenic cruise on a paved road.  We drop you off at the top of the pass with a guide and let you cruise downhill for miles with incredible mountain scenery passing you by.  Fall is an especially great time for this trip, when the aspen groves are glowing around you.

Rate Your Ability

Here is a brief summary of how we rate our trails.

If you could fit a vehicle with two pairs of wheels – like a car or ATV-  the trail is defined as “double track.” Trails that are wide enough only for vehicles with one set of wheels – like a bike- is called “singletrack.”

Beginner- Forest roads and double track with uphill and downhill sections.  Some simple rock features may be encountered.

Intermediate- Expect some steeper climbs and descents on singletrack.  Many rock features will be encountered.

Advanced- Big moves with steep rock features.  Lots of climbing and descending.
