Constructed by the Bull Shoals-Lakeview Rotary Club, this multi-use trail offers both hikers and mountain bikers access to remote areas of the park. The trail traverses the oak-hickory upland forest for a unique walking or riding experience. Along the trail are creek crossings, dirt roads, open meadows, long downhills and taxing uphills. Depending on the direction of travel, the loop trail allows users to choose from two levels of difficulty:
Clockwise (marked with blue blazes) - moderately difficult with strenuous uphill slopes.
Counter-clockwise (marked with green blazes) - moderately easy.
Note: Rental bikes are available at the Camper Registration Center in the park. Bicycle helmets are strongly recommended.
