AR SLAP Trax

In this thread, we will post up trax for anyone interested in getting off road in Northwest Arkansas. There may even be some stuff out of Eureka Springs for the Hillbilly run.

So if you have anything to share, throw into the mix. I know Charlies and 10cup have trax north into MO and those would apply to the Hillbilly run, hopefully they will post em.

Would like to ask that you post a discription of the trax and if it would be BIG BIKE firendly for those with big bikes of course..so lets get to it.

Here is a "catalog" of what we have so far. These are in order both numerical and alphabetical. Distance is shown in 3 digits.. Ex. 050 is 50 miles, 085 is 85 miles, all one way, etc

White Rock to Whoopeedo Rd

Roughly 100 miles one way, all county road with is big bike friendly. However, a big bike on Whoopeedo Rd will be a handfull. This is a road with a bunch of flood berms in it and it is abt 1.5 miles long..there is a bail out at the bottom..when you get to the bottom, just turn right on a county road and it will take you out to paved hwy 123, go north abt a mile or two and pick up your track back to White Rock

White Rock to Natural Dam

This is a track to natural Dam from White Rock..abt 55 miles one way..this will take you down Warloop road, and you best be an "experienced" rider for Warloop..recommend a bike no bigger than 650cc..there have been some big GS's go down and I have seen one go up, but these guys know how to ride..you have been warned! And then there is Pannell Rd...NOT BIG BIKE FRIENDLY at all! With all the rain we have gotten, there will be slick red clay mud..again, you have been warned!

Natural Dam is just that, it's a natural rock formation that looks like a dam with water flowing over the top.

For a good burger, the gas station, within sight of the dam, is the place to go!

Warloop bypass

This is a 'bypass' for those who do not want to go down Warloop road. It's roughly abt 8 miles down to hwy 71 in Mountainburg..there you can get gas and food.

This bypass is HIGHLY recommended if you are on a big bike (bigger than 650)..it basically takes hwy 348 from Warloop and Old Locke to Hickory Road down to hwy 71. Hickory Rd is dirt, smooth dirt and can be fast, but be aware, there are a couple of hairpin turns so watch your speed!

Here is the route I have planned thus far with the help of someone from here. I think this will be a great ride. I was planning on having us camp at Haw Creek, but I am open to other suggestions if y'all know anything better nearby. We prefer a campsite that is away from other people because we have been known to and carry on all night. Just need to be able to get there with a truck and a bike trailer.

Longpool is a good camp ground..has showers too..it's just off hwy 7 (west of 7) just abt where your track is..it's a further drive for the truck tho..if you ride by the place, at least stop in and look it over for next time maybe

White Rock to Jasper 108 miles

This will take you from White Rock to Jasper. This will take you to Oark where you can get fuel and a meal. You will also pass thru the little town of Deer where, again, you can get fuel and a snack.

There is one RED FLAG way point that is on a steep downhill with a sharp turn at the bottom. The road is loose gravel thus the RED FLAG..SLOW DOWN HERE!

There will be some water crossings and there is a good chance you will get your feet wet. This is 108 miles long, one way

Ok I'm getting ready to show just how dumb I am when it comes to gps technology. If I wanted to download the route from white rock to the natural bridge then insert the bypass to go around the whoop de doo's then how would I do that?

Sorry to sound so stupid but I don't know how to make it do that without starting with a brand new route and lay it all out again from start to finish.

I'm new too, and I have been playing around in mapsource with routes. I can open both routes, and just move waypoints around until the route suits me, then recalculate it, etc.

Now if I could just figure out how to make the 60csx always orient the map with north at the top of the screen like a car gps!

Adding second route as a bypass into an existing mapsource file

1. Load your selected route into MapSource

2. Find the "User Data Tabs" window. Do this by clicking on the small arrow on the left of the map window near the top. Within the "User Data Tabs" window you find the "Routes" tab. Click it open. You will now see the name of the route listed there.



3. Highlight the route name

4. Select "Show selected Route on Map" and the route appears on the map

5. Before you start making changes to your route insure that all of your tool bars are turned on. Do this by right clicking in a blank space above and outside of your map window. Put a tick mark in front of each of the tool bar categories.



6. Find the part of the route where you intend to start your bypass or detour

7. Next find your "Route Tool" it will be in the same tool bar as the little hand. (Hover your cursor over each symbol and you will see the name of the function).

8. Depress the route tool button.

9. Place the cursor on the place you want to start the bypass and click there left click there, a line will now be attached to your cursor.

10. Next move your cursor to the place where you want the bypass or re-route to end. Then, left click again.

11. Now hit the escape button on your keyboard. This stops the rubber band line from moving where where you cursor moves and it will set and highlight the newly built bypass route.

12. Find the Way Point flag in your tool bar (also next to the hand), click the Way Point button and move your cursor where you started your bypass route and drop a Way Point ON THE ORIGINAL ROUTE just ahead of where your bypass begins and name it something like bypass begins. (now when you get there you will know it).

13. Look in your route tab again. You will now have two routes showing. The first will be the original route and the second will be some route named with seemingly random roads. You will want to change the name of the second route to something you will remember.

14. To change the name of the route do this. Highlight the name of the route/double click the name of the route.

15. This takes you to the "Route properties window"

16. In the route properties window you will find a tick box with the word "autoname" on it's right. Untick this box

17. Next, just above the "autoname" and tick box you will see a field for naming the route. Highlight and delete the existing name. Then rename it what you want (something like Whoops bypass).

Modifying an existing route to avoid something or make a route correction


1. Open your selected route

2. Choose the "Selection Tool" from the toolbar (same toolbar as the hand),

3. Click somewhere, anywhere on the route line. This will cause the route to show arrows on it.

4. Zoom your map into one mile.

5. Select map detail setting "Highest"

6. Use the "selection tool" and grab the route where you wish to change it by left clicking the route. You will now see a rubberband line. Pull the rubberband to the road you desire and left click again. The route will change to where you want it.

7. There are some things to remember when doing this:

A. You may have to perform this operation more than once along the previous route to get the route where YOU want it.

B. Sometimes when you do this you will see a partial left over route or route remnant where you first started to change the route. To get rid of this partial route move the selection tool cursor somewhere off the route and click.

The arrows on the route will disappear, the line will go solid. Next go to where the "old route" ends and find the end "route point or black dot" and left click on it. Once you click on it it will highlight in black, immediately right click it and then select "delete waypoint. You will get a confirmation window, click "yes" and the old route will go away (you may have to do this more than once to get rid of the entire previous route).

I did this on the fly so if something in this tutorial doesn't make sense or needs clarification let me know

If you guys want some free topo maps that will load into MapSource check these out:

http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/state/ar

I've got two loaded that seem pretty nice:

Arkansas Topo 24k+
http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/137/

Arkansas Contour 20ft Overlay
http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/370/

After installing you will see a pulldown in MapSource where you can change maps. Kind of nice to see what the topos look like for all of these GPXs.

I think the overlay can be used on a gps in conjunction with a base street map. That way the topo will be overlaid. The first one, the Arkansas Topo 24k+, is nice in MapSource, but when I used it on my Nuvi at SLAP last year it was too much information unless I really zoomed in.

Anyway, I thought I'd throw this out there since it's a pretty cool freebie.
