    Tommy, I'm an Arkie myself, and I think there are some great places to ride here. I'll admit I'm predjuduced but truth is truth.
    Hwy 7 from Hot Springs north as far as you want to go is great. I use to ride myself in my younger days and N. Ar. has some great med. size hills. Good luck and have fun!!

    man that highway 7 brings back some nice memories. when we go on vacation we stay in hotsprings and we take highway 7 north and stop at all the little trails on the way and walk a bit. it's been 3 years sinse i been that way but man it sure is beautyfull.
     
  7. tommey i know there's trails some where, but I don't know where.
    If you want me to I'll get you the literature on Arkansas and mail it to you or you can go on line and order the vactioners package that's free, that would be your best bet.
    If I knew for sure my Honda Foreman would hold up I'd would enjoy a trip like that too.
    I can also ask my son if he knows, because he's an Arkansas State Parks Ranger.
    I'll give him a call, he's off on Mondays but I think I'm going to the State parks website to look and see what's available myself.
    tommy I'll holler back at you.
    Hey Snuffy tommy has visited Arkansas in the past...A.H

    Tommy, Mtn. View is a must see for sure. It's too late this year but they have a great festival in the spring(around 1st of May, I think) folk music, arts & craft, lots of good food. Also, Blanchard Springs Cavern is a great cave, one of the biggest in the country. They have a great campground there too. It's been many years since I went there but I'm sure the CofC could give you plenty of info. Have fun.

    Beautiful area--used to fly over it alot. Real cool ridgelines.

    Also used to fly into Fort Smith quite a bit -- Loved the BBQ at Jerry's.
     
  17. Hey tommy for give me I for got this thread. I called my son and he wasn't sure about State ATV trails but he said the national parks have them.
    But he did'nt know where.
    I too recommend Mountain Veiw my wife and I love that place.
    Make resorvations at the Folk Center Lodge and see the sites there and the show at night.
    Next Go to Blanchard Springs Caverns which is a few miles down the road.
    You will never forget going there.
    That place is nice and you'll enjoy the tour in the caverns. You gotta see this place !!!!
    Reserve 2 nights at the lodge at the Folk center. If you like Red Eye gravy then eat all your breakfast's at the Folk center resturant.
    There's so much to see and do here, you need a Tour guide book to know.
    If you can't get one I'll mail you some stuff.
    We have a new BIG tourist information center on HWY 167 and 82 because were close to north Louisiana.
    I can go feth you all the stuff you need. If you can't order it free off the net.

    Tommy - I grew up in Hot Springs and the surrounding area and just moved back last year. I know of several places if you are interested. Mtn. View, up north is beautiful as well. Here in Hot Springs their is actually a place called the Superlift Off-road park where us Jeep guys go ride up the side of mountains. They have some great views and some even better trails for ATV's. They have a website. It's

    www.orvpark.com

    Feel free to holler if you have any questions or want other suggestions.
     
  20. All this goes to show that Arkansas is truly a wonderful place to live!
