Scull Creek Trail Description

The Scull Creek Trail, which opened in October of 2008, extends from the Frisco Trail at W. Prospect Street north past the Meadow Valley Trail, Mud Creek Trail and Clear Creek Trail to Block Avenue. The trails combine to provide an extensive continuous route throughout Fayetteville. The Scull Creek Trail is considered the backbone of the city's growing trail system, in equal parts because of its central location and its connectivity to much of what Fayetteville has to offer, including private residences, businesses, the University of Arkansas and many parks.

The 12-foot wide paved surface of the trail can accommodate a high number of users ranging from alternative transportation commuters to those participating in a variety of recreational activities. No matter their intended use, travelers of the trail will appreciate the scenery of the mature trees that line the corridor. The trail is constructed of concrete in low areas and asphalt in higher areas. Lighting is included throughout for use in the evenings.

While the trail follows Scull Creek for most of its route, it also crosses the waterway at six locations with beautiful metal pedestrian bridges. Under the Fulbright Expressway, the Scull Creek Trail features the longest pedestrian tunnel in the state of Arkansas at 650 well-lit feet long.

The Scull Creek Trail is also part of a larger trail network known as 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 and Trail Access

Trail access is available at several cross streets: W. Prospect Street at the connection with the Frisco Trail, W. North Street, W. Sycamore Street, W. Poplar Street, W. Appleby Road and W. Van Asche Street. Parking is available at Gordon Long Park, which is on N. Gregg Avenue across from its intersection with W. Drake Street. Wilson Park is also very close to the southern end of the trail and provides additional parking off W. Prospect Street.
