A quick loop with great views of White Oak Lake.

Features -none-


Starting from the trailhead in the campground, riders experience a rock-free trail with roots as the main obstacle. Riding through the pine forests of the Timberland region, watch for slick pine needles in some of the turns.

The north and east sides of the trail follow the shoreline while the south side of the trail winds through the woods. A few wide, wooden bridges dot the trail. Climbs are short and fairly easy.

There is great camping in the park, a few other hiking-only trails, a marina, fishing and a nice gift shop. Come prepared as the park is in a remote area of the state. Camden, Arkansas is the best bet for supplies if you plan on staying a while.

Trail was a little hard to follow with it being so covered by leafs. If not for the little white discs we would have been lost.
