“Section 2 of the Ouachita Challenge. Rock gardens galore, and one of the best downhills in the State of Arkansas.”— Sam Dudley
When ready, continue on the trail through some moderate terrain until you begin climbing a steep and rocky quarter mile section. It'll level out at the top, but the rocks will only get bigger and more technical. Continue on until you come to two steep switchbacks descending into a beautiful rock garden. Expect difficult, narrow, and sometimes dangerous trail for the next 2 miles.
Eventually you'll reach the downhill portion which is one of the best in the state. The first half is super fast and wide open. It'll level out and there'll be a couple of punchy climbs until you reach the second half of the descent, which is a bit tighter and not as fast, but just as fun. Look for the shelter to the left as you approach the end or continue down the last portion of the descent which is wide, but also very steep. Take a left on the road to continue on the Ouachita National Recreation Trail - IMBA Epic or take a right to bail out.
