South of Fort Smith and Hartford in the Ouachita National Forest, the Poteau Mountain Multi Use Trail is a 22 mile route open to dirt biking. This is a lesser known area and there are no maps available. There is currently no designated trailhead parking area. All parking is along the road side.
Generally, the trails are in poor condition and unmarked. Therefore, this is not a trail system for beginners. It is very challenging and should only be attempted by experienced riders.
Overall, Poteau Mountain ORV Trail is the 9th most popular dirt bike trail of all 14 dirt biking rides in Arkansas.
