A fun, roller coaster ride on beautiful terrain.

Kenny Davis

Overview

This stretch from Denby Bay to Tompkins Bend is full of short, fast downhills followed by uphill battles at around 10% grade. This trail flows very well and requires more stamina than technique. Tompkins Bend Loop (Homestead Trail closes the loop) is flatter, and flows quickly.

This ride boasts scenic vistas and very well maintained trails.

This ride uses the Homestead Connector to return you to the Homestead trailhead of the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail - IMBA Epic.

Description

This ride begins immediately with roller coaster undulations, so you might want to take some time to warm-up the legs before starting. Once on the Tompkins Loop, your legs will get a chance to recover.

Returning on the Denby Bay Trail, there is a bridge that is lead into by a sharp right hand turn which tends to throw you toward the left edge of the bridge. Be careful!

Great trail. Stop in at the Shangri La cafe to get the scoop. Well maintained and flowy. Can extend into a 20-30 mile day easily. 14mi

Having ridden 3+ hrs on the Womble Saturday one lap Sunday on Denby Pt was perfect and all my legs could handle. The trail while not very technical had great flow and enough climbs to cook my legs. I almost liked it better then the Womble! Oct 10, 2016


The Denby Point is slightly harder then the Tompkins Bend Loop section due to a couple of climbs. Flowy and not technical beyond a couple roots on the up hills. This and Iron Mt. are great trails to work your skills up from green circles to blue squares so you can enjoy harder trails like the LOVIT or the Womble. Great sweeping views of the lake.
