Hobbs State Park

The Monument Trail System in Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area features more than 40 miles of dirt ribbons, which is reason it attracts so many mountain bike riders each year. With plenty of view of Beaver Lake, this new(er) mountain bike trail network is one that deserves your attention. The entrance of the trail is reachable on the east Tunnel Connector Trail from the Arkansas state park's visitor center.

Timberjack and Sawtooth downhill trails offer a good rip as well as the return trail. All three trails aren't long (roughly a mile each). In addition, you'll be able to traverse "the tunnel" which navigates you safely below Highway 12. After the tunnel, you can take either the East or West Wolf Den trails. Both drop downhill toward Karst Loop Trail where you can take the trail either direction toward the lake.

The initial climb on the trail up Karst Loop is short, but its crest provides the rider with a great flowing trail network that drops you down to the rock outcroppings as you drop down to the lake. If you're looking for a break at some point in your ride, you can take a dip in the lake. Also available are ride-in campsites if you feel inclined to stay more than a day. Separately, the 22-mile Hidden Diversity Trail also branches from the Visitor Center.
