Wildcat Mountain Trail

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Wildcat Mountain Trail challenges even the most experienced rider. Traveling a series of old abandoned logging roads dating back to the 1930s, the trail offers a wide variety of conditions. Riders will enjoy the excitement of steep, rocky terrain and sweeping, grassy stretches opening up to panoramic views of the Ouachita Mountains. A short rock scramble to Bobcat Point will reveal a spectacular view of Wildcat Mountain. Sections of the trail wind back and forth across narrow rocky creeks. Experience nature¿s reclaiming powers as you pick your way through young pine trees that have sprouted in the old roadbed. Plan a day here and you will not be disappointed.
