Craighead Forest

Route Description


TRAIL #22: Situated on Crowley’s Ridge, Craighead Forest Park offers unique outdoor recreation for a park in the middle of the Mississippi Delta – rolling hills with steep, technical drops, plus miles of cross country riding around a beautiful lake just minutes from Jonesboro. Lots of fast bermed turns, small bridges and short climbs can be found throughout the trail system. The park has plenty of camping and day-use opportunities for the whole family. Take a break from your ride with some disc golf, fishing or hiking. The park has also been home to cyclocross and XTERRA events.
