This Thursday, August 27th, Central Arkansas Water (CAW) will host a public workshop to discuss a proposed recreation plan for Lake Maumelle, Lake Winona and adjacent CAW property.
CAW is seeking input and recommendations in order to “evaluate the water quality compatibility of current and potential recreation activities.”
This meeting represents a significant opportunity for mountain biking in central Arkansas as the section of the Ouachita Trail along the north shore of Lake Maumelle is currently closed to mountain bikes.
CATA has met with CAW and requested that mountain bikes be permitted on this section of the trail, but to date, these requests have been denied.
However, CAW representatives assured us that there would be an opportunity to make a case for opening the trail to mountain bikes - this meeting is that opportunity.
Strength in Numbers
This is a call to action to the central Arkansas mountain biking community - we need your help in urging CAW to reconsider its position and include mountain bike access in its recreation plan for Lake Maumelle. Join us this Thursday from 6 to 8 PM at the Winfield United Methodist Church.
The public workshop will occur on Thursday, August 27, from 6-8 pm at the Winfield United Methodist Church located at 20100 Cantrell Road, Little Rock 72223.
