Adventure Trails & Retreat   is located near Mena, Arkansas in Shady, in the middle of the Caney Creek Wildlife Management Area (85,000 acres). It borders Caney Creek Wilderness Area (14,460 acres of non motorized access) and Ouachita National Forest (1.8 million acres). The Cossatot river is located ¼ mile away.

The retreat offers many recreational activities including ATV riding, horseback riding, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking, as well as hunting and fishing.

You can ride your ATV directly to the Wolf Pen Gap ATV trailhead just 2.5 miles away to take in the 41 miles of dedicated scenic trails.

We are horse/mule friendly, and offer a pasture to keep your horses in during your stay. We are just 3 miles away from the Caney Creek Wilderness Trail, and nearby Buckeye Trail and an endless choice of other trails in the surrounding Ouachita National Forest. While you CAN ride to the trail, we recommend trailering your horse so you can enjoy more trail riding.

Hunting opportunities for deer, turkey, bear, squirrel and more are available in the surrounding Ouachita National Forest. Fishing is available on nearby lakes and creeks. The Cossatot River is perfect for your canoe or kayak adventure! There are great mountain biking trails and rock climbing spots nearby.
