As the title says, this thread is a place to share tracks for the rally. If you have tracks to share, here's the process:

UPLOAD:
Find them in your computers' File Explorer (MS) or Finder (Apple).

Right click and make a duplicate just to make sure you don't mess up your original.

Leave the .gpx file extension alone and add .txt after it. An example file would then be something like: Track123.gpx.txt

Make a post in this thread and click on Attach Files. Select your new txt file. That's it.

DOWNLOAD:
Simply click on the file to download it. (May need to right click and select download)

Go to your downloads folder.

Delete the .txt extension.

You should be good to move the files to your phone or GPS at that point.

Please post up if there is an issue D/L it.

The First 2 are mostly SLAB from what I can tell. Another member stepped up and shot them over to me. THANKS!!!!! I have not ridden these specifically but I am familiar with the location.​

MF East and West is two loops out of Marbel Falls, maybe "MF" was a poor choice.​

For those you coming from the EAST or WEST I posted the AR TAT. Yes I have ridden all of it​

Waypoints is so you guys and gals can find the good places to eat and get some fuel. I am a beer drinker and there are many places that are dry in AR. There is a few spots to buy beer just north of the resort on HWY 7, I might not have made a WP for that. But I can tell you how to get there.​
TAT is the TAT from Coast to coast, NO I have not ridden all of it. Been from NC to Colo so I may not be the best source for anything other than what I have done.​

EDIT 01 24 2020:

So I am planning on posting up 5 to 10 tracks, Uncle Bob and I talked about this so I can give him a hand with the rally. It is nice to see other guys/gals post up too. (and thanks for helping out). Just so I can stay organized with what I do (or am going to do) I will post them all here. They will have different names and I try to always add the miles after the name to help folks out. If you have questions for me or there is something you are having a problem with please post here in this thread. Quote me/tag me whatever the cool wording is so I will know you are directing the post to me. You can always post a screen shot of a particular track or waypoint to help out as well. I have done a number of rally's and I have know Bob for quite a while we always try to make it easy and fun for the riders.

I am looking for to this ride and meeting some new folks. Some folks say my tracks are challenging, if you are a newbie, between me and the other AR riders we will help you out.

Heading southwest out of Dogpatch to Oark via mostly dirt and gravel country roads and forest service roads with some pavement to start.
When you get to CR 5881, also known as Big Piney Creek Rd, which has Car Wash Falls on it, the track wants to take you on east to HW 123.
There is a water crossing just east of Car Wash Falls you may not be able to ford if its too high. If that is the case, turn around and come back to where you took the hard left onto CR 5881 and go left. This will take you across the low water concrete bridge to CR 30 then to CR 5680 and back on track, just bypassing the bottom part of that loop.

If you can make it out to HW 123 where you turn right, be sure to go into Haw Creek Falls park and look at the falls.

This track takes you east out of Dogpatch on mostly dirt and gravel county roads and forest service roads and makes a 160 mile clockwise loop back to the start. It has a little bit of everything as far as terrain and scenery. When you get to HW 14 and turn right onto it, there is Wild Bill Outfitter gas station and rest stop about five miles on south of where you turn right off of HW 14 to head back west.
Th Buffalo River State park is a couple of miles down the road going east out of the gas station and has some very pretty bluffs that are worth the ride down to see.

I downloaded the second track and it looks like it works fine.

Thank you good Sir!!!!! And thanks for adding a few of you own. Please fell free to correct me as I have been on an AR hiatus for about 2 years, I started going back to E TN.

Ok guys going to do a few more here.......

Natural Dam Loop, for those that remember one year Mark and I got back close to dark. Some folks asked up where we went to. I said OK, they all laughed and asked again, I restated OK......

Natural Dam is a stones throw away and my route took some of the TAT.

Back Woods BBQ is closed, I am way bummed as I bet Paulie could not eat the hillbilly sandwich and a piece of PIE. He did not disappoint. still a good loop.

Mulberry Loop starts down south and stops in CASS for fuel on hwy 23, the ride to the west is great.

I added a few "connectors" so you other folks can get back to MF ok.


The AR 500 is a track I rode doing, well. You guessed it. The AR 500, an AMAZING ride if you ever get the chance to do so. Scotty and his wife run a BIG CAT refuge south of Eureka Springs. This track takes you there, and if you keep going North the town of Eureka Springs is a fun place to visit. Much bigger and more to do then the small one I have mentioned. They serve beer............

Buffalo Loops.

These are tracks and Routes close to MF, they all have mileage in the name. It is some back and forth since I took them out to the overlooks and and dead ends. Jasper is the next closest town and just South of MF. This is the only one that has TRACKS and ROUTES, I am NOT a ROUTE guy.

Uhhhh hold on Sparky.
Natural Dam is 135 miles from Marble Falls and that's going the straightest route just to get there.

Just a tad more than "a stone's throw away".
