“A smooth rolling trail near the banks of the Arkansas River.”— Kenny Davis
This is a fun little trail. The area where the trail is built is relatively flat compared to some other trails. Don't expect to find a lot of elevation gain out there; the only hard climb is what they call the Power Line Loop. There are a few rougher spots but nothing to worry about. For the most part this trail is pretty easy, it is mostly hard packed with some loose rock.
The trail was built on a very small tract of land so it is tight and twists through the woods. You can also find a few little spots out here to get some air. There are a few nice places to get in some scenic views; one of which is at the top of Power Line hill. Once at the top of the hill, look to your left and you'll see a small trail heading toward the river. If you take this trail it will bring you to some bluffs that overlook the Arkansas River. We call this little trail the Bluff Trail and if you continue on you'll come out to a parking area where you can get another good shot of the river below. The Rock Quarry can be kind of nice for scenic views as well.
