Question 2ND. Ark Tour

Would like to get local suggestions on where to go for ARK. round 2 ADV. Man I really dig NW Ark, the first trip we camped at Mulberry Mtn Lodge and rode out of that base camp. We did the "blue loop " at Mill Creek Trails.


Then went to ride to the east, and make our way to Oark via back roads / trails.
60' Falls.....waaaay kewl. One of the riders in our group said it was better water fall than any in Hawaii.

2ND. Ark Tour

60' Falls

Then we make our way through everything from goat trails to FS roads, and a little slab to get to the infamous Oark Café.

That was one of the best cheeseburger and pie I have ever consumed.

2ND Ark Tour

I was hoping to get some NW Ark. advise on an area to go next to ride out of camp and some more awesome trails around there. As you can see in my posts above ^^^^ we are on smaller 250-450 dirtbikes some plated some not, so would like to ride a mix of mild to wild (really like ST) and would welcome any local guide to lead our group of 4-6 riders to show us around, and join us around the campfire for food and beers afterwards.
What say you fellow adv. arkies, what would be good for the next installment.
Brock Creek
Caddo Gap
Long Pool
Ross Foundation
Buckhorn Creek
Low Gap
Moccosin Gap
Wolf Pen Gap
Any gap,,except hippie chic gap.

And TIA
Any advise would much appreciated.

Dover is the closest town to longpool campground and I believe moccasin gap is right by the longpool campground

Dunno anything abt the Ross Foundation...maybe someone who does will chime in..Long Pool is off HWY 7 north of Russellville...drive thru Dover and abt4 or 5 miles, look for the signs..turn left (west) and follow into the park

Thanks for reply and info everyone, sounds like Long Pool is the place to be next. I am really impressed with that chunk of the Ozark Mtns. just out your door.
What kind of riding is moccosin gap, and how accessable is that to LP CG ? Same for Brock Creek?
From RR's I have read Brock is more challenging side hill mtn riding with ST involved, that sounds fun.

Just trying to get some intel for ride planning,,,,,, and future retirement maybe

Devils Den for camping and Buckhorn for riding is really nice.
White Rock for camping and Frog Bayou, Hurricane Creek, Mulberry River for riding is very fun as well. I could help guide on either of these.

Like you I got the NWA itch and scratched it by buying some land bordering the National Forest. I try to get up there every other weekend and hope to make a permanent move up there some day soon.

Thanks, lots of good info from everyone. Gives me a good place to start research.
TypeSH, do you base out of your property, or a nearby CG ? Not trying to pry in your business or anything, but I just might PM you when we get ready to go back there, since you are there so frequently. Could use guide help, we are not that savvy on GPS yet, but working on that now and rely on maps and compass at this point in time. I am truly amazed at the number of routes and tracks available on this site for GPS.

I have a small cabin on my land and I base out of that. You guys are welcome to camp at my property if you like as it is rather centralized on Sunset (20 miles to Mill Creek, 20 miles to White Rock, 20 miles to Buckhorn). I'm good with the GPS and I enjoy showing off this part of the Ozarks.

Might just take you up on your generous offer, thanks. Noticed you have a CFR250L, what type of riding do you enjoy? I have a 250x and like to mix in some ST gnar as well as trail/ FS road sight seeing. A little variety is the spice of life as it goes.

When are you thinking of camping at Long Pool? I know some cool sites in that area like Dover Lights, sign in cabin built before the civil war, waterfalls.
