We spent the weekend here with another couple. There are trails for all level of rider, they are well marked. If you talk to the locals you can find out lots of side trails that are open for riding too.

This place was terrifying in spots but then again, I'm no ATV rider. Beautiful sights but in my opinion, whatever the trail is rated, bump it up a notch to the next rating......

Beautiful area, hope they keep the trails open to ATVs. Great experience. Wish the park would mark the trails clearer and the maps could mark the scenery that you could see. I was very afraid we would get lost or that we had to keep back tracking in order not to get lost. But the trails were great. See my... More

We detoured to the Wolfpen Gap Campground to spend one night and ride the trails on our way to Hot Springs. I had read the reviews and was concerned about the bridge. When we got there we realized that the bridge is made of railroad material and RVs safely drive across it daily. The bridge is perfectly stable. We stayed... More

This actually two reviews in one. I took a chance (after previous reviews) and booked a couple of nights at Wolfpen Campground. The bridge was a little concerning at first. But, then I realized it was an old railcar (flat car). Knowing these are good for 200,000 lbs on the railroad, I figured it was good enough to cross. If... More

We took our 3 boys to Mena (stayed at Black Bear Cabins) to ride ATVs. Once you get to the trails, they are very beautiful and scenic. There are some pretty challenging trails, but our 8-year-old was able to navigate them as long as we went slow. Pack a lunch as you will want to stay on the trails all... More

In fairness to the "terrible" review on this place, it is not the trails that are terrible. Wolf Pen Gap Trails is a network of trails that go all over the national forest around Mena, AR and there are several campgrounds that serve this area. The complaint about the rickety bridge is actually a complaint about only one of the... More

Website gives good directions on how to get there. The trails are marked but many signs are missing. Follow the blazes on the trees. Download your map before you leave or take a photo of the one on the board at the trail head as there were no printed copies available. The trails were well maintained though not very challenging...

The trails are well kept and clean. Numerous streams and creeks add interest and lovely stopping points. Trails are well marked. Saturday can be crowded so opt for a weekday to avoid the crowd. Must see the Two footed Oak and the forgotten mine!
