Sugar Creek and Brock Creek Trails in Arkansas

Looking up riding areas in Arkansas and located these two. We have been to Wolf Pen many times over the last 20 years, been to Fourche Mt. a few times and Mill Creek twice. We like fast trails with some challenges too. In comparison, how is the RZR riding at Sugar Creek and Brock Creek? Are these trails worth the drive from Southwest Louisiana?

Re: Sugar Creek and Brock Creek Trails in Arkansas

The trails are great. There are a few challenges, but overall its fairly easy riding. I don't mean 10 year olds on ATVs, but fairly easy in any SXS. Trails are marked, maps are available. For more of a challenge, Macks Pines, 25 miles north of Russellville on HWY 7 North. Only problem back in there, it is not mapped. I don't recommend going there without someone that knows there way around. Brock Creek eventually connects back in the wooly woods with Mack's Pines.

Re: Sugar Creek and Brock Creek Trails in Arkansas

Depends how long you want to stay?

You could make a week out of riding between Brock Creek, Macks pines/moccasin gap, then over to Mulberry Mountain/Mill creek and further west to Buckhorn. That would easily be a 5-7day riding time frame if you wanted it to be.

We will be at Macks in March. Shoot me a PM and I can provide details.

Re: Sugar Creek and Brock Creek Trails in Arkansas

Planned a family trip for spring break to huckleberry mountain trail, staying at mt. Magazine lodge, and maybe hitting the sugar creek trails too. Never been to either trail so we shall find out how good they are.

The lodge is one of the nicest Arkansas state parks. If not the nicest.

Keep in mind you can NOT ride within the state park bounds, nor can you ride in/around the lodge.

I think you will be quite impressed with the accommodations, and the restaurant. The downside is that it was never built with UTV guys in mind. lol

Re: Sugar Creek and Brock Creek Trails in Arkansas

I've been to the lodge a few times on motorcycles and ate lunch there. Never have stayed in the lodge. Took the family there on the way back from Mill Creek last year and they just loved the lodge so this time we will stay there. Looking at maps, there is a trailhead very near the lodge that crosses the highway then onto the trails. This makes a short trip to trailhead!

What days are you going to be there? We just booked the last week in March, but we're staying in the campground.

Re: Sugar Creek and Brock Creek Trails in Arkansas

Question about huckleberry and sugar creek trails:
Are they ok for a 60” S model? I see on map some 50” sections at huckleberry but looks like I can go around them if I can’t fit.

And I ask because in October we went to Chadwick, Missouri and those trails were ridiculously tight for even 50” rzr.

Yes, no gates at sugar creek, all the gates on huckleberry are at least 68 inches wide.

It might be lonely at the top, but it's a bitch at the bottom.

Re: Sugar Creek and Brock Creek Trails in Arkansas

Just north of the lodge on 309 you'll find cove creek supply. They have gas and great cafe style food. You can ride your sxs there from the trails. We usually park our trailers in the lot next door.

It might be lonely at the top, but it's a bitch at the bottom.

All the legal trails are mapped. Can be loaded to Avenza from by going to Ozark Forest OHV maps
