What to know
The Ozark Grinder Trail is a bikepacking dream destination! Approximately 129 miles, predominately of gravel, and 9,000 feet+ of elevation gained from Tyler Bend at the Buffalo National River to Fairfield Bay! More miles of gravel connect to the main route: the Lick Fork Connector, the Marshall Spur, the Leslie Loop, the Oxley Loop, and the Meadowcreek Loop! The route offers fabulous views of the Buffalo National River, Richland Creek, Falling Water Creek, and the Middle Fork of the Little Red River. Ride along the Ozark Highlands Trail, the Buffalo River Trail, and along stretches of the long-departed Missouri & North Arkansas Railroad. This trail sports serious mountain climbs and steep descents! High water at low bridge crossings may make the trail impassable at times. Do not attempt dangerous water crossings. Turn around, don’t drown. This remote route is often without cellphone service. Ride with a partner and plan ahead for this incredible adventure.
