After the Ride: Local Favorites

Burls Country Smokehouse This is a great place. Really like their sandwiches as well as the beef jerky and beef sticks. My son says it’s his favorite jerky you can buy.
Bohemia Part 2... Yelling from the kitchen & staff seemed upset we were there
Park avenue, Hot Springs AR — (517) 727-5283
DeLuca's Pizzeria Best pizza pie in Hot Springs. Well-worth the price. Owner hails from Brooklyn, NY as well. Authentic as you can get.
Wok Express Chicken and broccoli is awesome!
Colonial Pancake & Waffle House Not fun place with kids..thy kicked us out.
Rolando's Restaurante Never go to here. It sucks.
The Pancake Shop They don't take plastic so plan ahead!

Dry, Fallen Trees - Only 2 or 3 trees down on the trail. It was recently cleaned and is well defined. There are a few steep grades on mostly bench cut trail with a few steep run off crossings. Trail is very enjoyable, more so in the counter-clockwise direction. Challenging and rewarding
