Camp Robinson Trails

Central Arkansas Recreational Pedalers is a group of mountain bike enthusiast who love riding single track trails out at Camp Robinson in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

The über trail system of central Arkansas has a little something for riders of every skill level. Camp Robinson is a state military installation located in North Little Rock just off of I-40 and the Burns Park exit. CARP has been given special permission to utilize Training Area Two and we have built several trails on TA2. You must be a member of CARP to utilize these trails, and you MUST always carry your membership card with you when you are riding on Camp Robinson. CARP is responsible for keeping the trails in good condition, and we have periodic clean up days, but you can help by packing out what you pack in. When visiting Camp Robinson, be sure to check in at the Police Station as you enter the installation, or your vehicle will be towed and you will be fined $160 for Criminal Trespass.
