A few years ago I saw an indie film highlighting the MTB scene in Bentonville, Arkansas. At the time, I had no idea this area had such a great trail network.
I recently learned that – led by two Walton grandchildren in conjunction with the Walton Foundation – the county has invested $73MM into all sorts of trails, features, and signage.
A recent economic impact study confirmed that visitors like me bring in $143MM annually. Expect to see cars from all over at trailheads.
This place is bonkers; the variety of riding is awesome – loads of riding immediately accessed from the campground.
I’ve been on the bike every day this week, my personal favorite being the #theback40 … one of multiple 20+ mile XC loops.
