Arkansas Pig Trail, Arkansas

The town of Ozark lies between Little Rock and Fort Smith, and that's where you'll want to pick up this trail, so aptly named in the state that made Razorbacks famous.

The rugged and forested Boston Mountains region of the Ozark Mountains is the setting for this route, which often runs through a tunnel of foliage during spring, summer and fall.

Spring wildflowers and brilliant autumn colors make the route especially popular during those seasons. The route crosses the Mulberry River and the 165-mile Ozark Highlands Trail.

And you'll encounter various hairpin turns, straightaways, and drop-offs where the cliffs seem to be right next to you.

Stop by the general store halfway through the run to get a pin proclaiming that you have ridden "The Arkansas Dragon."
