“A short but scenic ride in the Ouachita's.”— Kenny Davis
Pipe Springs is just that, a pipe coming out of the hillside that is always flowing. Cross the dirt road here and you are back on the Charlton Trail as it overlaps with the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail - IMBA Epic trail. This section was the Charlton Trail long before the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail - IMBA Epic trail was even thought of, but since the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail - IMBA Epic has come through, this section of trail is very well maintained.
You'll have a creek crossing and then start a short, mostly mild, climb up the hill. Once at the top it is a fast descent to Crystal Springs Recreation Area.
This can be ridden as an out-and-back, shuttle or use Hwy 270 to make a loop.
