Excellent! Hats off to those who developed this trail! Started in Fayetteville and rode north to Crystal Bridges. Scenery is beautiful in south part. Only trouble I had was in Bentonville...there is construction going on and parts of the trail had detours (I got lost). I flagged down another biker and she guided me through Bentonville to Crystal Bridges (bikers are friendly people). Trail was an easy ride and very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this.

Greg Smith River Trail

Awesome Trail

June, 2021 by robert.rogers

Ran my first half marathon (virtual) on this trail. Trail is fully paved and is mostly flat. Well maintained and we enjoy running it. You can do out and backs or park a car at either end of the trail and do the 6 mile one way. Plenty wide for trail traffic without any issues. Beautiful scenery along the way.

Old Frisco Trail

Hidden Jewel.

September, 2020 by teresacaves

I just discovered this somewhat local to me trail. I had no idea it existed. I will definitely be going back.

Absolutely love this trail! Great for training and just clearing your head!

Razorback Regional Greenway

A Gem of a Trail

May, 2020 by rzrbknil

We put in at the start of the trail in Bella Vista & rode to South Fayetteville, 35 miles. Very scenic with a variety of terrain & yes there are a few hills. I would advise riding it from the other direction from Fay to BV because of that but nonetheless a great trail from start to finish.

Frisco Trail

Nice trail through the center of Fayetteville

April, 2020 by timsnively

Great surface. Does have several road crossings.

St. Paul Trail

trail to nowhere

April, 2020 by timsnively

This trail is short and has no parking. It’s straight, flat and with a good surface. Some homeless live in tents near by.

Old Frisco Trail

Perfect for the family

March, 2020 by jhack18

We have been using the Frisco Trail for years now. I run there often because it’s easier on my joints than pavement (and no cars)!!! When I bring my kids, they ride their bikes while I jog. It’s flat, smooth and easy to ride or run. With the addition of lights, better bridges, and water...it will definitely be even more visited by us.
Also, we are very excited about the bike trails that weave through the trees! Great for me to ride or let the kids ride while I run the trail right beside them!!!!

Old Frisco Trail

Best Place to Train

March, 2020 by snyderk14

The Old Frisco Trail has been my go to training location for many marathons. I have completed 2 Boston Marathons and will also be going again this year. I love how the dirt rode has less impact on my feet, legs, and body than a true rode run. It is just like running down a flat dirt road for 6.5 miles turn around and come back. It is super easy to set out aid stations on but now we also have two water fountains for you to hydrate back up with again. I also love to take my kids out to this trail. I let them bike and I run. I feel so safe on this trail because you do not feel like you are about to get hit by a car. This is such a great place to run or bike. Go outside. Run on Dirt.

Razorback Regional Greenway

Very good trail! Nice Ride!

May, 2019 by bkn94

Rode the southern portion of the trail in May 2019. Started at the "Bike Route Bike Shop"and went south to Kessler Mountain Regional Park and back. Trail is well kept and thought out. One thing I noticed, as a first time visitor to the area, riding south is more intuitive than riding back north. That being said, the trail is well designed and well kept. 4.5 stars! Lastly, after your ride, make sure to stop at HUGO's for a meal! The "Blue Moon Burger" is tasty!
Thx
