mill creek ark. one of my favorite places to ride the place has turned into another (chadwick) not as good but it's gettin pretty ruff, a great place to ride. I belive it is a 26 mile Loop on the blue run. the trails are not marked real good but they have been doing some improvments [Image: new049-1.jpg] [Image: MillCreekTrailFront.jpg]
Here is a lengthy thred on MIll Creek Arkansas.

I am looking to put together a spring ride mill creek area, and hoping old man dave59 , club wfo and others would be willing to help with info.
Are you req'd to get an ARK. OHV sticker/permit ?
Is it best to be plated for connecting FR to trailheads ?
What other trails are out there besides the blue loop and shortcut routes inside the blue loop ?
What are best options for primitive camping ? I've seen the posts here mention south of Combs AR or other areas.
Has anyone stayed and rode out of Byrd's Adv. center near town of Oark?
The adv. guys have a big rally in May out of Byrd's called the S.L.A.P. (squeal like a pig) rally.http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=942935&highlight=slap
I heard there are trails to ride from byrds to M Creek, otherwise have to be plated.

Great questions.
Generally, an ATV permit from any state will work, but no mention of needing 1 anywhere and have not been asked. I usually have a Chadwick sticker on my bikes.
Things change, but so far as long as you are not doing Stupid stuff the Forrest rangers will not bother you. We have been ridding the dirt roads for many years untagged. Doing a wheelie or speeding will get you a nice fine if Ranger is behind you of course.
Camping is limited on the boundary now because they have fenced the creek off at the west side of Mill Creek to stop pollution in the creek.They are trying to confine us to the big campgrounds right before the entrance, but around 10 left going south on Mill Creek road. There is Redding camp grounds (Primative) close by 215. MAP

There is a camp close by Mulberry mountain lodge on 23 that is close.

[b]My favorite is White Rock Mountain cabins.

8 to 10 people per cabin possible making it around $13.00 apiece a night. We ride or trailer the 7 miles from there to Mill Creek.
Carol and I have stayed at http://www.byrdsadventurecenter.com/ with FJ and explored 4 wheeling, small place and Rock Crawler land. We found trail out of Byrds that was Cool and connected to another trial system well hidden from most, but we explored the area and found a bunch of Cool stuff with FJ.. I do not know of trails connecting Mill creek to Byrds and have explored that area a lot .
As far as the trails, there is hidden single track all over.

in and out of Mill Creek boundary. There is the Creek Run South of there, hard to find.

Then there is the Waterfall run, not in Mill Creek boundary. We don't tell you how to get there, escorted only to save the beauty,

I will tell you that it is real easy to get lost there and a Garmin trail GPS is advised and 3 maps, State Federal and county because the roads are named 1 or the other, Never know which. A guide like me is highly recommended.

Great stuff Dave, thanks. As I gather info it is appearent that I need to get OHVUM maps from the Boston Mtn. ranger district. And we are getting the Garmin Montanna and giong to learn how use it. Maybe if we are down there at the same time we could impose on your guide services
for the cool hidden stuff.

Carol and I love to go there often, so we will see what happens. I think our Spring ride might be May this year.
OHVUM's are on the way from ARK. the nice lady on the phone said she is sending a package with all the off hiway routes for the state.
Sounds good to me, we will see what I recieve in the mail, hey they were free.
Unfortunately I an hearing some poor feed back about the Blue run. Apparently after putting in a thousand speed Bumps last year, they now undercut the backside of these making them dangerous now too. I an going to plate our bikes this year in anticipation of possible issues in the future.
If you would like to come over for bike night Eric, we can go over the alternate trails and my maps I have made of this area and new riding are we found.
Going to mill creek to check it out and ride weekend of 4/12. Maybe see you there.
