Brock Creek Trail Maintenance Day
Not sure if this needs to be on the regional forums, but figured this would get visibility here more so than anywhere else.
The ARA (Adventure Riders of Arkansas) is having a maintenance day at Brock Creek on Saturday, September 27th. If you have ever ridden the trails there, you will know that this is the only National Forest Trail system within Arkansas that has designated, motorcycles only, single-track trails. Most all other trail systems are deemed "multi-use" and have been over run by ATVs. We are very fortunate to have these trails and periodically, we venture up there to trim face slappers, cut trees that have fallen on the trail or reroute trails that need to "heal".
If you have nothing but time on your hands that Saturday and want to join in the fun, meet us at the "Upper Brock Creek Recreation Area" campsite above the lake at 9 AM. Bring loppers (trimmers) or any other cutting device you might have laying around or just bring yourselves with a willingness to help out.
Directions (per Devrodirt):
1. DO NOT let any GPS device auto-route you to Brock Creek Lake or Campground! It will NOT get you there and you will be wondering around the woods for an hour or more trying to find it!
(Addendum): Take exit 107 on I-40 at Morrilton and head north on AR 95. Go 11 miles and turn left on AR 124 just past Wonderview. Travel 8 more miles and you are in Jerusalem.
2. From Jerusalem: Find the sign at the 4-way crossroads that points you towards New Hope Cemetery, and go that way. It's gravel county and forest roads all the way. Time to check/mark/reset your truck ODO.
3. Drive on that road, Jerusalem Rd, for 6.1 miles. (This road has changed county road numbers about 10 times in the last 15 years so don't worry about the road number, just go towards New Hope Cemetery which has been in the same place for 150 years.)
4. At a fork in the road, located 6.1 miles from the New Hope Cemetery sign==TURN RIGHT.
5. You are now exactly 1 mile from the Brock Creek Campground.
6. At the next fork in the road=====STAY LEFT.
7. At the next fork in the road =====STAY RIGHT.
8. A hundred feet or so past the last fork you will see a road and an open gate TO THE RIGHT. TURN RIGHT HERE. Go down that road a few hundred feet to the campground. There is most probably not a sign there telling you of the campground.
If you cross a concrete low water bridge or drive across the Brock Creek dam, turn around, you missed it.
