F.A.S.T is dedicated to the future of our trails and riding community.
Slaughter Pen Trails
The Slaughter Pen trail system is part of an ongoing downtown revitalization. Our single-track philosophy is centered on supporting active lifestyles in Bentonville. This trail system is designed with a simple goal: create a trail that challenges riders and provides opportunities for skills improvement every day. Over the years, the best single-track we’ve come to know are not smooth and effortless, but rather the type that challenge riders to step out of their comfort zones. It’s when you surpass the challenge that the real rewards are felt in the endorphins, smiles, and laughs. This trail system incorporates progressive features, but also takes into account all riders by providing alternate lines for all skill levels. Technical features, like rock squeezes and stairs are quintessential components. Slaughter Pen provides quality single-track located near the heart of Bentonville so our hardworking residents could have one of the best trails seconds away from their office or house. The All-American trail is a gateway trail to the Slaughter Pen trail system for beginners and families. The All-American trail is a soft surface trail that parallels the paved Crystal Bridges trail which is easily accessed from the Downtown Square.
Blowing Springs Trails
Blowing Springs Walking and Biking Trails offers 6.3 miles of natural-surface trails at Blowing Springs Park in Bella Vista. The rolling contour trails range from two to three feet wide. The trails are designed to be used by pedestrians and mountain bikers of all age and skill levels. The trails have been designed to take advantage of the park’s natural beauty, including its many bluff lines, springs, caverns and established natural habitat. One of the trails’ highlights is a 30-foot bridge that leaves a rock shelf to connect to the trail below that winds around to a “natural air-conditioned cavern,” which releases 60 degree air. The trail system includes a total of eight bridges and 15 benches. Given the terrain, some of the trails are inherently more challenging; however, the trail was built with safety and sustainability in mind.
Lake Leatherwood Trails
The Lake Leatherwood trails are a mix of singletrack and fireroads that offers some of the best mountain biking around. The ride is not overly technical so intermediate riders should have no issues, beginners may be on and off there bike a few times but should be able to tackle a large percentage of the trail. Some of the more technical aspects to the trail are some semi-steep downs, switchbacks, rocks, and creek crossings. The outer loops are more technical so more experienced riders should head over to that section. The trails are well maintained and well marked.
