    n e arkansas riding at byrds

    Ok im trying to find a nice new place to camp and ride and came across byrds adventure center in ozark which looks like a nice place and was wondering if anyone has been there and can tell me what type riding it is. Is it trike friendly and my wife will be riding the rhino and she wants easy trails and they allow night riding which will be great as we usally go to st joe but want to ride at night . thanks for any info

    Byrd's is in a nice area. I haven't been on the trails in a long time there, but I remember them as mostly Jeep trails.

    It's right on the Mulberry River, which great for canoeing. It's really near Cass, Ozark is 20 miles or so south of there. You'll also be very close to the Mill Creek OHV area. http://www.riderplanet-usa.com/atv/t.../ride_8b75.htm

    I've never camped there, so I cannot comment on those services, but the whole area is nice, as far as the Ozarks go. You would also be only minutes from Oark General Store, which was opened in 1890. http://www.oarkgeneralstore.com/home.html

    It's a really popular place to eat and they have good food. The drive there is scenic and it really is a destination worth visiting. There's typically a crowd of motorcycle riders of all types there, as the ride there is that nice.

    Then there is Turner Bend just around the corner. http://turnerbend.com/ They have canoe rentals and cabins, sell fuel, beer, and other typical small store items. Be sure to buy a Pig Trail (Highway 23) sticker if you stop by.

    Another place to camp or lodge is Mulberry Mountain, which has trails that connect to Mill Creek. http://www.mulberrymountainlodge.com...do/atv-trails/ That is where the now defunct Wakarusa music festival used to be held. http://www.wakarusa.com/


    I used to live within minutes of those places and rode my trike all over the place. It's been a while since I have though. I mostly buzz through on dual sport bikes now, being street legal really opens up riding opportunities.

    Mill Creek is a fun place. I have been once last year but wanting to go back. It is only a couple hours from me.

    For anyone planning a trip to northwest Arkansas and places like Mill Creek, Byrd's, and the general area, just let me know if you'd like to meet. I've been living in the area off and on for several years and know it fairly well, even if I haven't been on the trails in a while.

    I don't have a trike with me right now and they're all hardtails anyway, so I wouldn't be able to stay up with the sport trike riders, but I could tag along on my bike.

    jonolanracin, do you or any in your group like beer?

    I ask because I was going to bring something from one of the local breweries if you do.

    Thank you to all of your group for a fun time, and especially for the chance to ride your Tri-Z (which I shouldn't have done, because now I want one).

    The weather couldn't have been better, cool and no dust on the trails/gravel roads. If y'all ever come back, I'll get a camping spot and do some night riding, and probably use my Big Red for that.
