Wolf Pen Gap ATV Trails

Southeast of Mena and west of Hot Springs in the Ouachita National Forest, the Wolf Pen Gap ATV area has 41 miles of loop trails. Featuring high mountain vistas, the trail leads the rider through an array of areas, including scenic Gap Creek and Board Camp Creek. The trail continues through a forest of large pines and hardwoods before passing the unique 2-foot tall oak tree and an abandoned mine shaft. The trail loops are connected to accommodate riders who want to vary the length of their trips.

To reach the ATV riding trailhead for Wolf Pen Gap from Mena, head east on SR 8 for 1 mile to SR375, then south 8 miles to the trailhead near County Road 277. Additional trailheads are farther south on SR375 and south on Forest Road 38.

Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding is permitted on all Forest Service roads unless the road is marked closed or it is barricaded. Watch for new ATV riding regulations in September 2008.
