Westward In and Out- An in and out ride heading west works real well utilizing the Ouachita Trail. About 6 miles in you will end up on a dirt
road for a while. Follow the blue markings on the trees for about three miles and watch for the singletrack ducking into the woods to the right. Go in as far as you can
stand. When you are not having any more fun, turn around and head back.
Eastward In and Out- Heading east provides a little more challenging trail, and can be a great in and out or there are two loops that can be accomplished by returning back by
way of Hwy 270 after exciting the trail at Fiddler Creek or at Rainy Creek.
To Highway 27- Take the trail eastward 28 miles to Hwy 27. About a six hour ride for a very fit rider.
To Highway 71- 28 miles point to point. Set up your shuttle at the Highway 71 Trailhead. Look forward to approximately 7 to 8 hours for a very strong and
experienced rider. Intermediate and beginner riders should not attempt to ride this full section of trail. Not enough hours in a day and very few places to bail
out. This section of trail clear to highway 71 will give very technical trail with steep ascents and descents, and a couple hike-a-bike sections. Only for the very
experienced rider. Ride from Big Brushy to Highway 71 or Highway 71 to Big Brushy. Best direction is from Highway 27 to Big Brushy. Either way it is a
very challenging ride. Access the trail from Big Brushy by turning right on Forest Route 6 out of the campground, cross the bridge and go past the stairs leading to the
hiking only trail section.
Rockhouse Loop- Take the Ouachita Trail approximately 4 miles to the Rockhouse Trail. Take the Rockhouse Trail descent to Forest Route 6. A short distance to Forest Route
E16B, and ascend back by way of the Mountain Top Trail. Some light duty clean up has already been performed by biking crews, and should provide an enjoyable ride on this
technical section, mixed with some logging roads. 2-4 hours depending on skill level. Many other loop options available. Be sure to take a map.
