One of the newest additions to Fayetteville's growing trail system, the Clear Creek Trail links two of the city's most popular trails: the Scull Creek Trail in the west and the Lake Fayetteville Trail in the east. As its name suggests, the trail runs along Clear Creek for its nearly 2-mile journey.
The scenic trail is tree-lined with grade-separated crossings of busy Wilkerson Road and busier State Route 71 Business, offering a peaceful slice of nature for residents of northern Fayetteville and Johnson. Near the trail's midpoint, a spur leads to Northwest Arkansas Mall, the self-proclaimed retail hub for Fayetteville, Springdale and Rogers. Those without cars will appreciate the opportunity to walk, run, bike or skate to shop or work at the mall.
At the trail's eastern end, the Lake Fayetteville Trail encircles Lake Fayetteville Park, which features a 194-acre lake popular with boaters, fishermen and other outdoor enthusiasts. In the west, the Scull Creek Trail heads south into downtown Fayetteville, meeting the Frisco Trail near the city's entertainment district.
All three trails are also components of the Razorback Regional Greenway, a 36-mile, primarily off-road, shared-use trail that extends from Bella Vista Lake in north Bentonville to the southern edge of Fayetteville.
Parking for the Clear Creek Trail is available at Northwest Arkansas Mall (4201 N. Shiloh Drive, Fayetteville). Park at the northwest corner of their large parking lot and take the short spur trail to reach the main trail.
Additional parking can be found at Lake Fayetteville Park on N. Vantage Drive. From the parking lot, take the Lake Fayetteville Trail a short distance west. When you reach the spillway, continue bearing west, away from the lake.
