This is an easy bike ride from the Arkansas River to the west side of town (on Hwy 50). The trail is paved the whole way and has a gentle uphill trend. There is a fun dog park halfway up this trail if you happen to be walking your dog. This trail ultimately gives a more direct route to Wal-Mart from downtown without having to go on the highway.
