Eureka Springs Downhill (North Hub)

Now that we have talked about the South Hub  let’s cover the North Hub.

As I first entered the site, from the shuttle drop off area, across from Anglers grill (A great stop for a post ride tapped local brew….with a frosty glass!) I noticed I still had a little ways to go to get to my first trail head. I entered the left trail and headed another mile to the North Hub where I would find 4 of the 7 downhill trails. There were tons of signs to guide us all in the right direction.

As you enter into the area of the South Hub you will be greeted with a huge sign full of information on each trail. Behind the sign you will see the stone circle structure where each of the 4 trails heads begin. You can choose to take the ramp or the stairs!
