Near Waldron in the Ouachita National Forest, the 26 mile Fourche Mountain Trail (formerly Mill Creek Equestrian Trail ) is open to ATV riding. It offers breathtaking views of Fourche Mountain and Buck Knob. The yellow-blazed trail passes abandoned silver mines, beautiful streams and several views of the Ouachita Mountains. The trail has a combination of unsurfaced and road surfaces.

Fourche Mountain Trail is 26 miles in length with loops providing for short or day-long trips. Narrow tread and rocky conditions make riding difficult through the mixed forest with steep areas and high vantage points. Features include an abandoned silver mine, views of the Ouachita Mountains, rock glades and stream crossings at Rock and Turner creeks. Fourche Mountain Trail has one main access point with parking and no camping. There is no fee for use.

Or, the trailhead is located six miles east of Y City on US270. From US270 turn south onto on Forest Service Road 172.

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.

Overall, Fourche Mountain Trail is the 7th most popular ATV riding trail of all 12 ATV trails in Arkansas. Several of the better atv trails are nearby Fourche Mountain Trail including Wolf Pen Gap, Sugar Creek Trail and Poteau Mountain Trail.
