Alt Names

Mill Creek Equestrian Trail, Buck Knob, Ouachita National Forest, Poteau And Cold Springs Ranger District, Rock Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

Located in the Ouachita National Forest, this 26 mile multiple use trail system is open to ATVs, dirt bikes and non-motorized use. The trails system is open year-round but the best time to visit is during the spring, summer and fall months.

Beautiful forest scenery, scenic mountain views and several streams can be found here. The trails are rated as mostly easy to moderate but there is a rocky section on Trail #9. Overall this is a good place to take a beginner.
