A family-friendly paved trail with beautiful views of Lake Fayetteville, plus access to playgrounds, picnic areas, and restrooms.
Fayetteville, Arkansas is home to an extensive 50-mile network of family-friendly paved trails that thoughtfully wind throughout town – creating a place for cyclists of all abilities to access outdoor recreation while never being too far from bicycle-friendly restaurants, shops, pubs, and patios. After the ride, Fayetteville offers a variety of bicycle-friendly hotels that provide a well-deserved nights rest ahead of another day of riding – and most within ½ mile of the trails!
Additionally, the Razorback Greenway spans south to north through Fayetteville and serves as the backbone for urban cycling adventures across Northwest Arkansas. Recognized as a National Recreational Trail and one of the country’s “highest caliber trails”, the 40-mile Razorback Greenway and the official “Mile Zero” of the trail system begins at Fayetteville’s Kessler Mountain Regional Park.
