Rising 1,350 feet, Mount Nebo offers sweeping views of the Arkansas River Valley. In 1933, a portion of the mountain was chosen as a park site. Native stone and logs from Mount Nebo were used by the Civilian Conservation Corps to construct many of the park's bridges, trails, rustic-style cabins, and pavilions. The park offers 34 campsites (24 Class B; 10 Hike-in Tent sites) [no dump station] and 14 fully-equipped cabins with kitchens. Fourteen miles of trails encircle Mount Nebo. For mountain biking enthusiasts, the 4 1/2-mile Bench Trail is a fairly level route encircling the side of 1,850-foot Mount Nebo. As you ride through the mixed hardwood and pine forest, you'll pass historic springs and Fern Lake, and see rock work done by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930s. This is an excellent ride for your family's first mountain biking adventure. You can choose from primitive campsites located at intervals along the Bench Trail, or stay in the park campground.

I've been on the trail nearly all my life and I have to say it's one of my most favorite trails! I prefer more difficult trails that include climbing rocks and such but you still can't go wrong with this trail! Highly recommended!!

It was just short, dry, and strenuous. If you are looking for a workout without all the great views of the other trails, then this one is good.

Great trail with endless views!

Awesome views! Most of this trail is easy, but there are some more strenuous areas. I saw a lot of deer, lizards, rabbits, etc. The trail is right on the edge of the mountain in some locations so keep that in mind if you bring your kids. I don't have any, but I would probably have died of a heart attack if I did.
