Earthquake Ridge

Route Description


TRAIL #13: One of the older trails in the state, Earthquake Ridge offers riders easy rolling hills, steep climbs and rocky terrain. Trailheads are located at the Forest Service Information Center on Scenic Highway 88/Talimena National Scenic Byway, just up the hill from downtown Mena. Public restrooms are located at the Information Center, which also provides maps and other resources. Generally, the trails to the east of the parking lot are easier, while those that follow the highway up the mountain are more technical and strenuous. The newly completed Rich Mountain Trail connects Earthquake Ridge to the IMBA Epic Ouachita National Recreation Trail.
