Lawrence County Rail-Trail

New parking area

May, 2019 by kingdome

There is a new parking area by the United Free Will Baptist Church at the corner of 67B and Pocahontas St. It appears the church has expanded their parking so the trail cuts through the middle of it, or it may be for the trail. anyway, it is new and very convenient. One mile north of the church, the trail is washed out as it crosses Coon Creek. It has been partially filled and you can get across this, but it is challenging. Another mile north and we found a tree down, blocking the trail and turned around. After returning to our starting point, we continued about 3 miles south, to the southern end and returned for a total of 10 miles. With the exception of the creek crossing and the tree down, it was a nice ride. I rode from the airport to the main highway about a month ago and found it to be a pleasant ride, with a couple of exceptions. First off, the first 50 yards or so was bad, lots of broken glass and tree trimming debris and so forth. It was barely possible to pick a path through it safely. I would not chance it without heavy duty tires and tubes. A little ways in, the bridge is beginning to deteriorate. Most of the nails holding the decking down need to be driven back down. Fortunately, they are all lined up and quite visible so I was able to pick my path through them on my Catrike. The rest of the trail is very enjoyable. You do need to be cautious crossing streets as the crossings are not marked for autos, but traffic is not heavy. The southern end of the trail is just a turn around.

Very good trail! Nice Ride!

May, 2019 by bkn94

Rode the southern portion of the trail in May 2019. Started at the "Bike Route Bike Shop"and went south to Kessler Mountain Regional Park and back. Trail is well kept and thought out. One thing I noticed, as a first time visitor to the area, riding south is more intuitive than riding back north. That being said, the trail is well designed and well kept. 4.5 stars! Lastly, after your ride, make sure to stop at HUGO's for a meal! The "Blue Moon Burger" is tasty!

Hot Springs Creek Greenway Trail

Great multi purpose trail

May, 2019 by anast8sia

The city of hot springs has worked hard to make this a wonderful Trail. Public art, babbling brook, and lots of shade. Can’t wait to return to an expanded trail. Really Too short for bikes now, but the staff at the visitors center promised ....soon. Will hold them to the promise when I return.

Several street crossings, but drivers were very respectful and stopped to let us pass as soon as they saw us. Safe, clean, well maintained.

Mud Creek Trail

Super easy and flat, perfect for little kids!

October, 2018 by martinyoungnissantech

I have a ten and a four year old who both just started biking. We had zero problems and only had to push up hill at the access ramps to the cross streets. Also a couple of spots put you basically on the side walk by speeding traffic separated only by plastic fence pole things, kinda scary for the parents but the kids thought it was great lol. Going under several bridges beside pretty water spots called for closer inspection and added to the adventure. Very pretty ride that makes you forget you are in town sometimes, take the kids and they will love it! By the way, the Old Mo. road parking lot is usually full so plan on parking behind Regions bank at Joyce and Vantage. In the back at the end of Vantage there is an access spot to the trail.

great trail

September, 2018 by rpmagee

I was in Arkansas last week, visiting from PA and rode this trail, one of the best trails I have ever ridden. I am on a quest to ride 100 miles in each state and rode 62 miles one day and 40 the next and greatly enjoyed this trail. Going through a couple of towns the way the trail and the road is separated was fantastic.

Razorback Regional Greenway

Signage ??

August, 2018 by adrianwright100

As visitors, rode some of the Greenway for first time this week. Awesome trail system. We thought the Tulsa OK trails were good but this system has them beaten for standard and variety of users. We rode trikes but the systems available for all grades of mountain bikers was phenomenal.
Only complaint we had, maybe more of a comment, signage could be better in some places. As the system is made up of many trails, it was confusing when trying to go from one to another. Got onto the wrong trail twice because no signage at any trail splits.only reason we didn't give 5 stars.

Delta Heritage Trail State Park

Two adjectives FLAT and Shady!

June, 2018 by annreply50

It's a shame more people do not use this trail. It is very well maintained and very shaded for most of the trip. My brother and I live 3 hours away and do this trail at least 3 times a year. For a Sunday family outing there is a picnic area with grills at the state park at mile mark 2, and then 4 generations from babies in strollers to great-great grandparents can walk or bike parts of the trail. Two negatives though. crushed stone and except at mile marker 2, there are no restrooms, no food, no water along the trail, only benches for breaks; hence the 4 rating.

Delta Heritage Trail State Park

Local opinion

April, 2018 by kingfarms

My wife and I bike this trail occasionally and love it. Great trailhead with a very nice visitors center on hwy 49. It starts off with a few miles of tree shaded trail that turns into wide open farm field viewing. It’s a small gravel trail that is very flat. Bring plenty of water! We highly recommend it. When it is completed, it will be one of the most beautiful trails in the country as it will go through the “last frontier” white river refuge. Can’t wait!

Delta Heritage Trail State Park

Well Maintained Trail With A lot Of Promise

April, 2018 by kerund

We did an out and back on this trail south from the state park to about mile 15, where it emerges from the trees and continues through farm fields along a road.

The trail is well-maintained and there is some interesting historical info. along the way. The trail is tucked into a tree lined strip between fields, so there is really nothing like the hardwood forest that the literature suggests, although the ride is pleasant enough.

Watch out for dogs that were loose from a nearby house between mile markers 8 and 9.

It seems the remaining 64 miles, if ever completed, may be the best part of the trail, since some of it would pass through a national wildlife refuge.

The people at the state park were very friendly, even offering to come rescue us if we had a flat!

Big River Crossing

Big River Awesome

April, 2018 by koldtoess

Very much worth the short stop! We parked & unloaded at the trailhead on Channel 3 Drive by WREG where there was plenty of secure/safe parking. We rode across the bridge while stopping at the lookouts for pics of the MS River, tow boats, Memphis and the 100-year-old bridge. You will end up at a nice landing area on the AR side. Upon returning and reloading the bikes, we headed to Harbor Town/Mud Island to go exploring. We parked at the Middle Lot (the North Lot was a bit sketchy) & picnicked on the lawn watching the river. We got back on our bikes and rode the Mississippi River Greenbelt (the path parallel to Island Dr.) south to the entrance of Mud Island and back north to the new Downtown Wolf River Greenway at the confluence of the Wolf & MS Rivers. The new greenway takes you to the top the levee on one side and through “bottom land” on the opposite in an approx. 1-mile loop. Getting off the greenways, we spent the next couple of hours leisurely biking through the micro-neighborhoods of Harbor Town enjoying the residential architecture, friendly folks and views of the Wolf River Harbor and Pyramid. We truly enjoyed this relaxing spring ride over & on the banks of the MS River in Memphis.
