Some of the best mountain biking the United States has to offer is available right here in Arkansas thanks to new trails like this one. Lots of folks have heard about Fitzgerald, but not everyone has had a chance to go and check it out. The $1.16 million system was funded by the Walton Family Foundation and is built on 130-acres of land near Bayyari Park, which are owned and maintained by the City of Springdale and Springdale Water Utilities. It features 10-miles of soft-surface trails and includes something for everyone-from beginner-level biking and hiking trails to intermediate cross-country loops to some massive, double black diamond jump lines. Beginner features: The beginner-level features are accessed from Bayyari Park and include a small, gravel pump track next to the park pavilion. A 2-mile beginner loop (name TBA) is also located by the park and serves as a great warmup run if you're headed north across Dodd Avenue to the rest of the system. The loop also provides access to the jump lines. The pump track is next to the pavilion at Bayyari Park. The beginner loop includes a tunnel underneath an optional jump line bridge roll-in above. The beginner loop also passes below a giant gap on the jump line above. Jump lines: The jump lines are absolutely stunning, but be warned. They are very much expert-level trails with huge gaps and giant kickers. They are still under construction, but should be complete by the end of November. A bridge roll-in serves as the start to one of the jump lines. Butterfield Trail: Butterfield Trail is an intermediate cross-country trail that provides access to four other trails on the mountain. It can be ridden as a 2.4-mile loop, or you can take it to the hub at the top of the mountain. It includes several dirt berms and a few optional gap jumps. You can ride in either direction, but it's faster and feels more flowy when ridden counter-clockwise. Coyote Cave is a black diamond trail that's accessed from either Butterfield near the bottom of the mountain or the hub at the top. The trail passes by several bluffs and a cave. Nearly half of the trail surface is placed rock.Show more

These trails are used by hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders alike. The main parking lot has restroom facilities and water. The trails can be used in a number of different combinations resulting in hikes that can vary from a few miles to over 16. Little Clifty Creek is the central feature of the trail system, with foot bridges over to both the north and the south. The War Eagle loop, approximately six miles, has great views of War Eagle Creek, with several benches for sitting on a nice day. There is even a side trail that takes you to the Hobbs Visitor Center. The trails are very well maintained, with significant elevation changes from the parking lot to Clifty Creek. There are sign-ins at the trailheads, and maps available at the sign-in stations. The parking lots are gated, and closed during night hours. There is also a parking area for horse trailers.Show more
