Sugar Creek Trail

Thursday, July 28, 2016

Alt Names

Sugar Creek, Ouachita National Forest, Cold Springs Ranger District, Jack Creek Recreation Area, Huckleberry Creek, Middle Creek, Bald Knob, Spanish Oak Ridge, Buck Ridge, Right Hand Sugar Creek, Knoppers Ford

Last Known StatusOpen

Open year-round, this area offers 37 miles hardpacked and rocky ATV trails with several creek crossings. The trails are marked with yellow blazes and form long and scenic loops. The trail system is open year-round but note that trail 13 (heading west from the staging area) has a seasonal crossing that is only accessible during dry weather.

There is no fee charged for parking or riding but overnight parking is not permitted at the main staging. Knoppers Ford is less about a half mile away which has six tent sites and a vault toilet and additional camping can be found a few miles north at Jack Creek Campground. Both sites do not charge for camping or day use but there are no electric or water hookups, so come prepared.
