Hob (Hidden Diversity Trail) - Trail, Rogers, Arkansas

Has a lot of potential. Needs to be ridden more. A little loose. Good climbs with fast downhills. Very diverse trail.

The whole trail system is fast and solid. Not techincal or steep but a great work out and alot of fun. It's like a "blue" ski run, you can make it challanging but at the end of the day its just a fun cruiser. This trail dries very quickly.

Customer Service

I prefer to park at the Piney Road trail head, ride the "bunny ears" first (Bashore -clockwise and Dutton Hollow-counter clockwise) then clockwise picking up War Eagle loop (the most difficult loop).

Today was my first time to ride this trail but please take my word for it this trail is awesome very very clean!!! Nice single track will all the uphill climbs anyone could need for a 15 mile plus ride, rode the the bunny ears don't be misinformed by the Nature Center the two bunny ears loops are tough on the the up hill but such a great fun trail just spend a day ridding out there and you will love it!

Hidden Diversity trail system is a great way to spend a couple of hours. It is non-techical other than a few switchbacks and a little heavy gravel in places from trail maintainence. All four loops are similar with War Eagle having a little more climbing. I got caught in the rain and the trails still rode well - the rocky terrain drains extremely well. For a strong cross-country rider, the system can be riden easily in two and half hours and is a great aerobic training ground. I've riden it once from the Piney Rd. lot - would recommend that starting point for more options and it's access from a paved road (Piney). Trails are very well maintained. Props to State Parks for creating solid, sanctioned MTB trails.

We ride this trail about every weekend. There is something for everyone. Our rookie 8 year old daugther can do Bashore which ends up being about 4 miles from parking lot and back. Our 14 year old son, who rides fast and with little fear, enjoys Little Clifty with the War Eagle Loop - lots of good climbs. I usually do Little Clifty. We prefer to use the Piney Road entrace (Townsend Ridge is another entrance but it is a gravel road). We take Little Clifty counter-clockwise. There are two killer hills after the bridges that offer a great workout. It may be a bit easier clockwise. Love the wooded, beautiful singletrack. Other than some loose gravel in parts, it's not too technical. The trails are well maintained and litter free.

Customer Service

Take Hwy 12 East of Rogers. Turn right on Piney Rd., biker/hiker parking is on the right.

SCHMIEDEKE   Cross Country Rider [Sep 30, 2009]

This is an awesome trail. With the opening of the War Eagle Loop it is now about 23 miles total with about 3k ft of climbing per my GPS. Nothing very technical. We usually ride from the Piney Rd. trailhead so riders of different conditoning can do a shorter version of the trail. A little gravely but not bad. The new war eagle loop is a killer with 6 miles and lots of climbing. Up and down then repeat. Also killer climb coming out of Van Winkle hollow. Trail is very well maintained. Maps are availalbe at the ranger station but are a bit hard to interpret but trail is very well marked. We always ride the trail clockwise.

The Piney Rd. parking lot is new with nice restrooms. There is also an overflow lot across the street. We usually do the trail on the west side of the road first where there are two loops totaling about 8 miles. You can then do the 9 mile Van Winkle loop on the east side of the road after returning to the parking lot. The Van Winkle loop will end up back where you started. As added torture the new War Eagle loop exits the Van Winkle trail about mid way then returns to the Van Winkle trail after about 6 miles. Be careful to go left at the return intersection since the signs are a little ambiguous. That will take you back to the Piney road trail head.

Customer Service

Take highway 12 east out of Rogers towards War Eagle. Turn right on Piney Rd which is about 4.3 miles from the east side of the Beaver Lake bridge. Turn right into parking lot about 1/2 mile down on the right. The west side of the trail exits the parking lot on the west side by the Kiosk. The east side of the trail begins across the street on the east side of Piney Rd.

As of April 10, 2009, this trail was closed due to the deadfalls caused by a January '09 ice storm... Hope it opens soon.

Like many have mentioned before, this trail is great if you love smooth, winding, fast single track riding. Make sure you don't forget to ride the whole trail and not just the inner circle. The downhill sections are fast and loads of fun and the uphill sections really arent that bad, but will get your heart pumping.

The trail crew has done an amazing job on this trail. Infact, on two seperate occasions I have ridden up on big groups of people cleaning the trail and maintaining it. It's good to know that there are people who care about keeping this trail in excellent shape. Possibly the funnest trail in NWA for me.

Customer Service

Start and trail head and ride both dog legs.

Kentarre   Cross Country Rider [Aug 15, 2007]

Without a doubt, one the the best trails in NW Arkansas. We had a little bit of a hard time finding it for our first trip but we just keep heading back.

Pros: Smooth, great climbs/descents, runs by the lake (jump in but look out for underwater trees!)

Cons: Not technical at all, climbs may be too difficult for some, alot of crap on the trail (literally, trail is shared with equestrians)

Customer Service

Left at the first fork, keep in mind you'll be in for a tough climb either way

Flat Ark   Cross Country Rider [Apr 08, 2007]

Not a very technical trail, but if you like going fast on long twisty downhills this place is a blast. I guess that I should mention that you have to climb some long twisty uphills to get to the downhill parts. Hey it can't all be fun and easy. That being said, this is a great place for hill training. Although it is not very technical one must be in good shape to ride these trails as the climbs can be very demanding, so if you are a true beginner you may want to take that into consideration. Anyways this is my favorite trail in Northwest Arkansas.
