Outdoors

Come for the scenery, stay for the adventure. Experience all the beauty The Natural State offers with over 40 miles of trails, 4,000 acres of parkland and beautiful lakes and rivers. The breathtaking scenery and numerous walking, jogging and biking trails make the city an ideal spot for discovering your next big adventure.

Our miles and miles of beautiful trails make biking year-round in Fayetteville a breeze, but warm spring weather is when all the bikes come out to play! Fayetteville celebrates Bike Month every year in May. The month features the popular Square-to-Square bike ride, a 36-mile trail from the Fayetteville Square to the Bentonville Square with great food stops along the way on the Razorback Greenway.

You can also experience biking in Fayetteville with the annual Bike to Baum event, which combines two of Fayetteville favorite pastimes— biking and Razorback baseball. For Bike to Baum, cyclists meet on Dickson Street in Fayetteville’s celebrated entertainment district and ride the trail to Baum Stadium, where they cheer on the Razorback baseball team and call the Hogs in one of the best ballparks in the SEC.

The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center (PBIC) has designated Fayetteville, Arkansas as a Bronze Level Walk Friendly Community for its walkability initiatives and programs.

With five lakes and four rivers and streams in and around Fayetteville, there are many places to find the perfect fishing spot. Whether you are wanting to fish for small- and large-mouth bass, trout, bream, catfish or trout, you can find a fishing hole nearby.

Fayetteville is continually making strides in establishing trails throughout its city limits. An extensive trails system is currently in use and expanding at the rate of two to three miles per year.

The Razorback Regional Greenway, the longest system of interconnected trails in the state, stretches across several cities in Northwest Arkansas. The 36-mile trail gives residents and visitors a space to run, bike, jog or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll in the beautiful outdoors.
