I started walking this trail in sections on April 16 in south Fayetteville and finished in Bella Vista on June 5. Other than various detours and closures which I wish were reflected on the map in this app, I thoroughly enjoyed the scenery along the trail. Now that I’ve finished walking the trail from south to north, I’m going to plan on biking it from north to south when my bike is fixed. It was nice to see how many families were biking together. ¿
Nice, fairly flat trail along the levee built to contain the Arkansas River when it gets too high. Lots of room to practice moving those feet in circles when riding your bike. The official length says 4.7 miles but if you go end to end it's a little over 6...about 6.2. One caution. As of 5/21/23 there are no functional bathrooms available on this trail. On one end they were all locked, on the other all were destroyed and non-working or locked. Overall, a nice trail but plan ahead.
Not a trail to ride if you're trying for high average speed. It crosses lots of roads, parking lots, and driveways. But, it is an excellent way to turn the Town Branch Trail into a loop instead of an out and back.
Nice trail but be warned it doesn’t loop around. I had my little dog with me and we had to walk back the way we started. Looks like it’s under construction.
This trail is currently incomplete as flooding has damaged bridges and crossings.
Not as clean and well kept as other trails. There’s a lot of trash left by those overnighting near trails. However, good safe crossings and interesting to weave through Fayetteville. I started at finished at Walker Park, which has a children’s splash park-an added cooling bonus on a hot day!
I started at Horsebarn trailhead 7/14/2022 headed toward Fayetteville. Beautiful ride! This is what I wanted to do the last 2 days from Bella Vista and Bentonville but could not due to construction. Signage was great! I had to detour in Springdale but the detour signs were spot on and I was back on the trail soon. The scenery was nice. I recommend riding from Horsebarn trailhead.
I drove 5.5 hours mid July 2022 with the goal of riding the trail. I reserved lodging at the trail which should have allowed me to ride as far as I wanted to go. Day 1 trail closure was thanks to the Bella Vista Bypass Project with projected completion fall 2021. Day 1 second attempt was stopped by another trail closure to expand the Crystal Bridges Museum. Day 2 attempt was toward Fayetteville from Bentonville only to ride about 2 miles & see a small sign saying “detour” with an arrow. I went the direction the arrow pointed to arrive at a busy intersection with no signage. Asking locals resulted in confused looks and no help. This was disappointing at best & extremely maddening. I’m not sure why trail organizers do not care enough to at least put adequate signage for detours.
It was a hot and humid day, but this shady trail along the water provided us with a nice setting for a relaxed ride. The town and university take good care of the area facilitates.
Section of trail closed due to construction for a bypass in April 2022
Started from Horsebarn Trailhead and headed south. Trail was pretty easy to follow and signs were at all junctions where one had multiple choices. It was a bit hilly in spots though. We rode as far as Springdale (Phat Tire Bikes) due to the headwinds that day (03/22). Surface is in very good condition. The trail crosses some roads, but also "goes under" many of them, especially the busy ones. Definitely a gem.
