Mt Nebo State Park is a 1,750ft butte in the heart of the Arkansas River Valley. This 25 mile Monument Trail system has something for everyone, including spectacular views, waterfalls, pine forests, winding rock gardens, and gravity – down and up. The drive up Highway 155 to the top of the mountain will begin your memorable trip to the mountain top, trailers longer than 24ft not recommended. Pack your lunch or head into Dardanelle or Russellville for a delicious meal. Wash and tune your bike at the Visitors’ Center. Be sure to stop in and tell the Park staff hello.
Loop together tons of different trail routes, beginner to expert. Start at the top or the bottom and pick your own adventure. The Miller’s Goat green trail runs a bit easier, counter-clockwise, and connects the blue routes. The Chickalah and Hayes Creek Run Downhill are the only bike-only trails. The Ox-Pull Climb trail is a biker-up hill-only trail (Hikers can go both directions).
Bring plenty of water, you’ll find serious elevation here.
