Upper Buffalo Mountain Bike Area | AR Boondocking

If you are traveling through Arkansas this is a wonderful place to stop and take a few days to relax. Hiking and mountain biking about here and the solitude is wonderful. It is a bit out of the way of any facilities such as grocery stores or gas stations though so come prepared and enjoy!

Location Notes:

The Good:

We absolutely loved this location. It was very roomy and tucked away. It was also right next to a trail head. It had just rained a ton so the trails were muddy but we would have loved to get out and bike a little.

The Bad:

It's definitely more of a vacation/camp spot as there are not any resources near by. There are some steep roads. Make sure to come in on Cave Mountain Road to avoid super rutty and steep road.
