Description Suggest an Edit

The Mud Creek Trail follows its namesake Mud Creek, known as Freyschlag Creek in the 19th century, from N. Old Missouri Road at the eastern terminus to the connection with the Scull Creek Trail near Steele Boulevard in the west. The 10-foot-wide asphalt trail includes a short stretch on N. Front Street, which has bike lanes. The trail runs past numerous residences, retail stores, restaurants and a movie theater, all while providing a secluded place to experience nature.

The Mud Creek Trail's connection with the Scull Creek Trail, which itself connects to the Frisco Trail in downtown Fayetteville, provides a continuous network of 7.6 miles of trail to the residents of the city. A spur to the north of the Mud Creek Trail also connects with bike lanes on Vantage Drive to give bicyclists a route to the Lake Fayetteville Trail on the north side of Fayetteville. Benches are available along the Mud Creek Trail.

The trail is part of a trail network known as the Razorback Greenway, a 36-mile, primarily off-road, shared-use trail that extends from the Bella Vista Trail in north Bentonville to south Fayetteville.

Public parking is provided at the eastern terminus on N. Old Missouri Road between the trail's intersection with Joyce Boulevard to the north and Sweetbriar Drive to the south. The trail can also be accessed where it crosses N. Front Street, between Joyce Boulevard and East Sain Street; Mall Avenue between Joyce Boulevard and Van Asche Drive; and Steele Boulevard between Joyce Boulevard and Van Asche Drive.

I LOVE this trail. It is beautiful for a nice walk or adventuring down to the creek. We always see some type of wildlife whether it is deer, birds, rabbits, turtles, etc. absolutely lovely. It's located behind the butterfield community, so I always feel more
