What to know
Beautiful lake views, gentle rollers and a heart-pounding hill climb await you on the 37-mile Lake Maumelle Loop, one of the best tours of Central Arkansas and one of the best ways to experience Wye Mountain. A scenic ride year-round, it’s particularly pretty in the springtime when the daffodils are in bloom. Starting at Pinnacle Mountain State Park on Hwy. 300, take Barrett Road across from the picnic area entrance, then turn right onto Hwy. 10. Expect heavy traffic along Hwy. 10. Early morning rides are recommended. Turn right onto Hwy. 113 (end of Lake Maumelle) and prepare for a strenuous scramble up Wye Mountain. It’s a challenge but a fun one with a super fast descent. Bear right on Hwy. 300 to head back to Pinnacle Mountain State Park.
