PostSubject: Enjoy ATV Mountainous Trails in Ozarks from Mulberry Mountain Lodging   Fri May 20, 2011 11:19 am

By: Robert Janis

Mulberry Mountain Lodging Camp Grounds
The Ozark National Forest in Arkansas is well known for its scenic beauty, and ATV enthusiasts are probably aware that it hosts some of the best ATV trails in the country. There are more than 100 miles of trails of various skill levels so all members of a group or large family whether a novice or expert on the four-wheelers are sure to enjoy the adventure.

Major trails include Brock Creek, Huckleberry Mountain Trail, Mill Creek OHV Trail System, and Moccasin Gap Trails. Most trails are multiple use.

The Brock Creek Trails feature two major loops and a number of interconnecting loops on more than 42 miles of trail. OHV’ers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders use the trail.

Huckleberry Mountain Trail includes two main loops on 40 miles of trail and is open to horseback riding, hiking, and mountain bikers.

Mill Creek OHV Trail System is available to OHV riders, mountain bikers, horse riders, and hikers. This is a true trail system that includes 27 miles of main trail and 15 miles of interior loops and shortcut trails. The ride takes you through remote areas of the Ozark National Forest and consists of all types of terrain including mountainous, scenic view, hardwood forests, rock outcrops and mountain streams.

Moccasin Gap Trails is known as one of the best horse trails in Arkansas, but this trail is also open to off-highway vehicles, mountain bikes, hikers and high-clearance vehicles. Terrain consists of forest of hardwoods and pines as well as streams and small waterfalls.

Easy access to these trails can be achieved from the Mulberry Mountain Lodging & Events facilities in Ozark, Arkansas. Located on Arkansas Highway 23--the Pig Trail National Scenic Byway--it is right in the middle of the Ozark National Forest. The trail was actually created by wild pigs and was later used by the settlers of the area. The area is rich in mixed foliage and terrific scenery and panoramic views from the Boston Mountains. Also, there is plenty of wildlife to encounter.

Opened in 2005, Mulberry Mountain Lodging & Events was originally a bed and breakfast site that was expanded to include cabins and full campgrounds of RV sites with full electric hookups and an amphitheater where concert events are hosted. Some events already scheduled for 2011 include the Wakarusa Music & Camping Festival June 2-5; Bikes Blues & BBQ Lodging and Camping September 28- October 1; and the Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Music Festival October 13-16. Check the Lodge website for other scheduled events.

“The Lodge does not rent ATVs nor does it provide guides, but it provides easy access to the several miles of ATV trails,” said Dewey Patton, manager of the Lodge. “You can ride your ATV out of the facility to the trails,” he said.

The Lodge offers a number of cabins and houses in which guests can stay. These include the Mulberry Mountain Lodge, Dower House, Sears House, Star Cabins I & II, Pop & Granny’s Cabin, Barn Loft, and Annie’s Cabin.

The 5,000 square foot lodge includes a 40-foot by 24-foot great room that features two gas fireplaces, one 20-feet high; a 50-foot glassed-in porch with a breath taking panoramic view of the Ozarks; full kitchen; dining area; eight bedrooms with 2-1/2 baths; laundry facilities; satellite TV; VCR and outdoor grills. Nightly rates are $375 for one to six with an additional fee of $40 for another guest up to 19.

Dower House is an authentic log cabin that features a full kitchen, dining area, full bath with shower/tub, laundry facilities, wood-burning stove, television with DVD player and outdoor grill. It also includes one bedroom with a full bed and king-size bed, loft with a single bed, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

Rates for the Dower and Sears House are $140 double occupancy and a fee of $15 for each additional guest up to seven.

Star I features the cabin on the second level with one bedroom with queen bed and a sleeper sofa in the living room. It also includes a full kitchen, dining area, full bath with shower/tub, television, VCR and outdoor gas grill. It can host up to four.

Star I rates are $135 double occupancy with a maximum of four; Star II rates are $145 double occupancy for a maximum of 10. Each additional guest pays $15.00.

The Pop & Granny’s Cabin is a private one bedroom with two full beds and a full sleeper sofa in the living room.

Packages are offered for all accommodations--stay four nights and get the fifth night free or stay Monday and Tuesday and get Wednesday for half price. Children 12 years and younger can stay free in the Lodge, Dower and Sears House and the Star Cabins.

Finally, the site includes RV and Tent Campgrounds with easy access to ATV, hiking and horse trails. Campsites include electric and water hookup and cost $24 a night for two people and $8 per night for each additional guest. Primitive campsites are available for $8 a night.

Other activities available at the Lodge include canoeing and kayaking, and fishing from four of the lodge’s stocked lakes as well as smallmouth, largemouth and spotted bass or green and long-ear sunfish fishing from the Mulberry River. Moreover, there are wineries in the town of Altus about 25 miles from Mulberry Mountain Lodge.

Kayaks and Canoes can be rented from one of several outfitters and guests to the lodge are encouraged to bring their horses. Accommodations include a stable with four horse stalls, paddocks and outdoor training area. In addition, there are panels for temporary stalls. Overnight rate for the horses are $15 per horse in the permanent stalls and $10 per horse in the temporary stalls.
