Hot Springs Off-Road Park ranks among the best off-roading spots in the state. It is a massive 1,254-acres of trails for 4x4s, UTVs, ATVs, and dirt bikes. The park, which is located at 2100 Mill Creek Road, is close to landmark attractions like Hot Springs National Park and to the many lodging options, restaurants, shopping, and attractions found in Hot Springs, a report said.
The park is located at the base of an extensive network of off-road trails. It offers camping, RV sites, and tent camping. There’s also a charging station for electric vehicles. A general store sells snacks, apparel, as well as repair and maintenance items. You can find maps of the trails online or onsite, as well as GPS mapping of the park.
There are many off-road trails that range from easy to challenging. The trailhead signs indicate the difficulty rating. This rating is determined depending on whether the vehicle you’re using is a Jeep, dirtbike, or ATV. The easiest level 1 trail is considered the easiest, while the most challenging level 5 trail is the most difficult.
Hot Springs Off-Road Park has the only Arkansas location that offers Jeep Badge of Honor Trails. Three of them are available at the park: “Fun Run,” “Rubicon Ridge,” or “Snake.” The Jeep Badge of Honor Trails app rewards Jeep drivers with badges that they can wear on their vehicles for driving routes in their network of trails. These badges can be collected from anywhere in the U.S.
The park is offering a new Off-Roading 101 workshop for anyone who has an off-road vehicle or is new to the sport. The workshop is held on Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. and includes a brief explanation of terminology, vehicle operation, what to expect on trails, and other basic information. The class does not require a registration fee. You only need to pay normal park fees as the day-use trail passes. Pre-registration is recommended online as space is limited.
A 2-hour guided offroad trail ride is also available. For a guided tour through the park, visitors can bring their off-road vehicles. This is led by an expert trail guide.
Side by Side rentals are available for rent at the park if you don’t own an off-road vehicle, or don’t want to bring it with you. You can choose between a 2-door or 4-door option as part of the guided tour that lasts 2 hours. When planning your next adventure, you can check availability online and make a reservation.
