Ouachita National Forest

You can access the Cedar Lake Trail from the day use parking area at Cedar Lake.  Or if your camping, you can access the trail from either any of the camp areas.  The trail hugs the shoreline and completely encircles Cedar Lake.  This 3 mile loop of trail offers an array of opportunities to day hikers and bikers who want to view waterfowl and wading birds which frequent the lake.  No big hills, and just technical enough to be challenging for even the best rider. 

From Cedar Lake Trail, you can access the Old Pine Interpretive Trail as well as the Horsethief Springs Trail.  There are three ascents to the top of the Ouachita Mountain Range.  A dirt road, a horse trail, and the hiking/biking trail.  About a 7 mile trip one way by way of any of these three routes to the Ouachita Trail.  Makes for a nice big challenging loop for the more experienced rider.    Lots of other equestrian trails with some of them actually being pretty nice.  Nice campground with with swim beach, showers, and electricity.  Another little known system of trails in the Ouachita Mountains. It will take a three-day weekend to ride all the trails.
