Old Frisco Trail

An overall pleasant trail

October, 2022 by ufonut

I walked / jogged the entire distance of this trail and back one recent Sunday morning / afternoon. A nice, mostly tree lined trail with mile markers along the way. Be careful if you are running this trail though because there are about ten signs at residential and commercial streets stating that “traffic does not stop.” My only complaint is that after a few miles the scenery gets rather boring and routine - plus there is the constant road noise nearby as well. Towards the end of the trail things got a bit rough and slightly overgrown but I actually rather enjoyed this wild and wooly portion before doubling back to the car. Highlights were the overall excellent condition of the trail, a bench or two to take a load off, a couple of water fountains, and a large pond off trail that was a welcome change of scenery. High

Interesting trail for a run

August, 2022 by claire.louisa.knowles

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!

3rd Day Good!

July, 2022 by lallien2003_tl

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.

Trail Closures. Poor signage.

July, 2022 by lallien2003_tl

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.

Nice Greenway Trail, Decent surface, Well Marked

March, 2022 by stvatandem

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.

Trail is being destroyed

December, 2021 by mistermysto

There is so much new road and building construction along RRG that the trail has become hazardous to travel. Multiple areas where the trail is torn out, sometimes with dead end, sometimes with routing bike traffic into the street along with vehicle, truck traffic.
This includes all areas north of Fayetteville (Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville and Bella Vista).
Safe riding has been reduced to only 10 miles at south end of the RRG trail.

Great Ride

October, 2021 by dlbaumert

Did this trail today from Bella Vista Lake to Rogers (Bass Pro). Beautiful day! Great trails - loves it. It’s under construction right now so I would park farther south to avoid that, but otherwise it was great!! They’ve done a great job with these trails - highly recommend.

Phase one is now finished, 6.2 miles one way, asphalt & concrete. Plenty of parking at both ends. Follows Arkansas River & on top of the levee with several deer crossings. Downtown section has a lot of foot traffic, benches & goes close the the new US Marshall’s Museum.

Beautiful Day

September, 2021 by sunflowerlizard

My daughter and I stayed in Rogers. Day 1 we hiked 8 miles on the Pigeon Roost Trail. Day 2 we drove to the Ozark Botanical Gardens with our bikes. After a tour of the gardens we rode our bikes around Lake Fayetteville and then headed south. We picnicked at Wilson Park and then headed back. Approximately 20 miles of biking was enough after a long day of hiking; however I can’t wait to go back and do more. I’ve ridden several trails and this one ranks up there. Beautiful and well maintained!

A must do!

August, 2021 by bthenry

I live in Rogers, AR so I am biased with this review. If you’re a visitor or a resident, the paved trail system (especially the Razorback Greenway Trail) in Benton and Washington Counties (Rogers, Bentonville, Lowell, Springdale, and Fayetteville) are the best I have ever rode. I have used paved trails in several other states, but the ones in NWA are the BEST. Hands down! The maintenance is meticulous. I find the signage helpful and easy to follow. There are many places with water fountains to refill your water bottles as public restrooms. I can’t say enough good things about the trails in Northwest Arkansas

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.
