“This doubletrack dirt road passes below towering cliffs and through an active oil field.”
— Chris Chaney
Arena Road goes a lot farther than you would expect compared to other spur roads in the area. It contours below the amazing cliffs that the Red River Gorge area is known for quite a while.
This is a good route to explore in addition to the growing singletrack network in Bald Rock. Begin on Drive-By Crag Road
and take the left fork after the first short climb and just before Shackle Rod Trail
splits off on the right. At the west end, the road descends back to Bald Rock Fork Road
making a good loop option.
