Byrd's offers many miles of single track and multi use trails for mountain bikes. You'll find casual riding on the wide, mostly level path around the perimeter of our airstrip and throughout main camping areas. This beginner friendly trail wanders along 3 miles of the Mulberry River and makes its way around ponds, forested areas, and scenic spots.

Our advanced trails offer a combination of multi-use and single track against the steep terrain of the Adventure Center. The expert cross-country loop can be ridden any direction, climbing and descending over bluff overlooks and boulder filled drainages. In addition, downhill riders can blaze numerous existing challenges, with many new route possibilities available.

Byrd's is a great basecamp for riding in the surrounding Ozark National Forest, with limitless miles of forest roads available in the 17,000-acre Indian Creek Dispersed Recreation Area bordering us to the north. To the south riders can explore the spectacular Clear Creek and Devil's Hollow rides. We recommend riding anytime except July and August, due to humidity, bugs, and undergrowth. Fall, winter, and spring offer great riding at Byrd's and the surrounding Ozark National Forest.

Thanks for making Byrd's Adventure Center the leading ATV park in Arkansas and one of the top canoe, kayak, and raft rental services on the wild and scenic Mulberry River. Since 1982, Byrd's Adventure Center has been the original off road and ATV park in Arkansas. In addition to hundreds of miles of ORV and ATV trails in the surrounding Ozark National Forest, Byrd's Adventure Center offers 800-acres of the ultimate trails, mud pits, and obstacles for your ATV, UTV (side by side), motorcycle, and stock or modified 4x4. With concerts beginning in the 1980s, Byrd's was the original music venue in the Mulberry River Valley. In 1995 Byrd's staff obtained the first permit to teach rock climbing in the Ozark National Forest. Byrd's Adventure Center was the first RV Campground and one of the first to offer lodging and cabin rentals along the wild and scenic Mulberry River. Arkansas' first adventure race, the Ozark Challenge, originated at Byrd's in 1998. The first hang gliding aerotow clinic in Arkansas took place at Byrd's in 2004. In 2010 Byrd's Adventure Center was base camp for the first Outward Bound courses in Arkansas.

Thanks to everyone who helped us grow at Byrd's Adventure Center! We look forward to serving you.  –the Byrd's staff
