Womble Trail, located in the Ouachita National Forest in western Arkansas, is a singletrack path running more than 37 miles from Northfork Lake to the Ouachita National Recreation Trail. [1] The U.S. Forest Service trail is open for use by mountain bikers and hikers. Horses and motorized vehicles are not allowed. The nearest towns are Mount Ida and Oden.

Some trail segments meander along bluffs of the Ouachita River. The Forest Service urges extra caution in these sections. [2] [1]

Trail users can hook up with Roundtop Trail and Ouachita National Recreation Trail (west of Arkansas Highway 27) to form an 8-mile loop.

Parking is available at four trailheads: Round Top Trail on Forest Road D75A; Highway 27 south of the bridge crossing Lake Ouachita; North Fork Lake; and Highway 298 trail intersection. Access is also available from Ouachita River float camps. Vault toilets are available at float camps. Drinking water is not available. There is no charge to use the trail.

The Forest Service rates usage as "heavy" and also recommends the spring and fall as the best months to use the trail.[1] [2]
