The White River Bluff Loop (WRBL) is one of five trails in the Syllamo Mountain Bike Trail System.
Together these interconnecting loops make up 50 miles of mountain bike trail that IMBA recognized as being an outstanding, destination-worthy mountain bike trail to assign it Epic status.
Most of the Syllamo trails are singletrack; however, there are sections where the trails follow old abandoned ATV trails.
Over 70% of the trails are over rocky, rugged, and demanding terrain. The trails can be accessed from four different trailheads, plus using a connector trail out of Blanchard Springs Recreation Area and Campground.
Three trailheads are on Green Mountain Road and the fourth is on AR Highway 5 North. The WRBL trailhead is located on Green Mountain Road.
It is a short lollipop loop with GREEN trail markers on brown carsonite posts.
After riding a short trail you will reach the beginning of the loop.
The recommended direction to ride is counter-clockwise.
There are a few technical, rocky climbs to reach the picturesque bluff views of the White River and Sylamore Creek Valley, but your efforts will be well-rewarded.
Other than the climbs in the bluff sections, the remainder of the WRBL is flowy and fast through rolling pine tree-lined forest.
