Slaughter Pen Trail

Slaughter Pen-
What sets this trail apart from others is location, diversity, and multiple trail experiences. You can start your ride from Downtown Bentonville, and after frolicking through fast flow sections, challenging climbs, rocky technical sections, directional downhills, shallow creek crossings, a free ride park, numerous boardwalks/skills areas, and views of the incredible Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, you end up back in Downtown. About 20 miles worth of Ozark coolness. (photo courtesy of Visit Bentonville)

Bella Vista-
Bella Vista is a bedroom community of Bentonville and has the perfect terrain for trails just a pedal stroke away from downtown Bentonville.  The village is nestled in a vast area of rolling hills and has 7 small lakes, numerous creeks and bluffs that have been hidden away from view until the trail is completed.  The trail system will wind through residential areas but the rider will have the experience of a 40 mile back country trek, all the while just minutes from a rest stop beer, pizza, or burger.
