Earthquake Ridge trail is a very rocky singletrack that makes climbing difficult at times. A few switchbacks are thrown in that cause a couple sections to be hike-a-bike. The downhill on the main loop are outstanding. Overall if you are an advanced rider this is a very good trail for it's distance.
How to get there:
Take US 71 from Ft. Smith 85 miles south to Mena. West on AR 88 1 mile to the ranger station. The bike trails are well marked from there. Coming from Little Rock/ Hot Springs take US 270 to US 71. Head south to Mena.
This is not a trail I would go out of my way to ride because it's main loop is only 2.7 miles, b
