The view from the parking lot at Old Post Mountain Bike Trail (OPMBT) alone is a worth the drive. But the real fun starts when you get on the trails.
Cyclists will be tested with rocks and exposed tree roots in the upland typography. The twisting, gnarly trails also offer Instagram-worthy scenery with bluff-top views of Dardanelle Rock across the river and the last stretch of Lake Dardanelle’s depths as it runs up against the dam.
Red fox, whitetail deer, and even wild turkey have been spotted among the pines and oaks. If you prefer a tamer walk or jog, the pavement dives from the OPMBT
parking lot onto a gentle flat path of about one mile alongside Lock and Dam Number 10 and past the pavilions and campsites.
And don’t forget your discs. One of the best disc golf courses in the state can be found at Old Post Park.
