Wonderful ride, we have ridden the entire trail and love this ride. Well marked, easy ride with amazing scenery.
This trail is currently incomplete as flooding has damaged bridges and crossings.
Very nice paved trail!! There is a parking lot at the Walnut Ridge trailhead. Easy to start there and ride to Hoxie. Easy ride.. the only issue is crossing Hwy 67, 4 lanes of heavy traffic.. but other than that, very nice! There is a Casey’s on the way if you need water and a restroom.
Lots of visual interest downtown with monuments and statues. A little hard to keep on trail as there was a lot of construction and detours. Only managed a couple of miles before hitting a dead end. I’d definitely return at a later date for a longer run hopefully on a less interrupted trail.
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.
I am so happy I drove up here from Louisiana to ride this trail. Really beautiful. I parked at the Clinton Library parking lot then rode downtown (be aware this is challenging due to all the construction so parts of the trail on the Little Rock side are closed). Also rode through Heifer Village and the Clinton library grounds. My recommendation is to go across the Clinton bridge then ride all the way down to the Big Dam bridge on the North Little Rock side & cross there. From the bridge you can go left to Murray Park or right to Twin Rivers Park Bridge. I just turned around and came back the way I had already rode. A local had advised me that traffic on the Little Rock side especially near the Dillards corporate headquarters was brutal. On the North Little Rock you’re rarely sharing the road and even then traffic was very light.
Very nice, flat, shaded trail. Not very long but an easy ride.
Took our bikes on this trail early In the morning. We are staying at the campground right next to the trail. Nice ride in the shade before the 100 degree temps. The city part, boat launch and riverfront were very nice. Closer to 2 miles each way. It was perfect for us today.
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.
