My wife and I rode the Ruby-Jack. It was a good trail for our cruiser e-bikes. There was quite a bit of shade and the chat was packed good in most places. We enjoyed it. The trail still hasn’t been extended to the state line. Actual cleaned out and rideable miles are about thirteen which includes a railroad carryover at Carl Junction. We would recommend this trail and kudos to the the area cyclists club for this trail!!
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 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.
We parked at the trail head on St. Louis street which is a gravel lot with portapotty and rode south which was packed gravel with some up hill and down hill area near the creek. This area makes you feel like you are way out in the country with woods on both sides. We did see a rider on horseback and pedestrians. The trail head at the south end had a larger paved parking lot but from a quick look I am not sure how safe that neighborhood’s is. Riding north towards web city the terrain was flat and the gravel was smoother but there was a lot of housing development on both sides so not much of a country feel at most intersections cars stopped to let us cross which was nice.
This trail is currently incomplete as flooding has damaged bridges and crossings.
All in all I think the trail is good. I enjoyed my day and had a good ride. I use a road bike with hybrid tires. Initially I tried to start in Carl Junction at the far west end of the trail which was actually Smithfield on the map. The only way you can ride on that section of it is if you have a mountain bike and there’s nowhere to park however if you go into Carl Junction right by the high school that is a good place to start. County Road 200 has a trail head and a place that you can park and you can go either direction on the trail. From Carl Junction East the trail is P gravel that is packed good with the exception of just a few spots. I saw a total of probably 10 people while I was on the trail mostly just north of Oronogo and Webb City when I was riding otherwise the trail is quite secluded. There is a lot of shade and the trail is fairly wide most of the way it narrows occasionally but you can easily pass people¿ everyone
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.
