Back 40

This challenging trail system is perfect for the experienced mountain biker looking to push their limits. There are a variety of trails that will challenge and thrill you, so be ready for anything! Saddle up because you’re about to explore the Back 40 Trail System. It will take a lot of effort for you to get up and down all those hills, but it is well worth it when you reach the top where views can be seen in every direction.

If you are looking for a challenging ride that will take your breath away, this is it. There might be no better way to feel like you've escaped the city and entered into nature than by biking through Slaughter Pen State Park in Arkansas. You'll have ample opportunity to experience some of the most scenic backwoods terrain around with views out over Lake Ouachita as well as plenty of hard-core mountain bike trails including The Ledges (a trail named after its karst ledges) and Rago's new rock features which were rebuilt following recent incidents at other parks. Just make sure if you decide to go deep within these 40 miles, don't forget anything else because once outside cell service there won’t be any.
