This gem of Midwest riding laces around the headwaters of the Buffalo National River on a mixture of narrow, hand-built singletrack and machine-cut flow trails. The ride is extremely remote and offers stunning scenery past steep cliffs, turquoise waterfalls, abundant wildlife and old-growth hardwood forests.
The Lake Ouachita Vitsta Trail (LOViT) is a well-designed and well-built trail on 90 percent singletrack through old growth, mixed species forest.

Two of these streams utilize innovative, large boulder crossings that offer technical challenge for riders.
