This trail is currently incomplete as flooding has damaged bridges and crossings.
Not as clean and well kept as other trails. There’s a lot of trash left by those overnighting near trails. However, good safe crossings and interesting to weave through Fayetteville. I started at finished at Walker Park, which has a children’s splash park-an added cooling bonus on a hot day!
I started at Horsebarn trailhead 7/14/2022 headed toward Fayetteville. Beautiful ride! This is what I wanted to do the last 2 days from Bella Vista and Bentonville but could not due to construction. Signage was great! I had to detour in Springdale but the detour signs were spot on and I was back on the trail soon. The scenery was nice. I recommend riding from Horsebarn trailhead.
I drove 5.5 hours mid July 2022 with the goal of riding the trail. I reserved lodging at the trail which should have allowed me to ride as far as I wanted to go. Day 1 trail closure was thanks to the Bella Vista Bypass Project with projected completion fall 2021. Day 1 second attempt was stopped by another trail closure to expand the Crystal Bridges Museum. Day 2 attempt was toward Fayetteville from Bentonville only to ride about 2 miles & see a small sign saying “detour” with an arrow. I went the direction the arrow pointed to arrive at a busy intersection with no signage. Asking locals resulted in confused looks and no help. This was disappointing at best & extremely maddening. I’m not sure why trail organizers do not care enough to at least put adequate signage for detours.
It was a hot and humid day, but this shady trail along the water provided us with a nice setting for a relaxed ride. The town and university take good care of the area facilitates.
Section of trail closed due to construction for a bypass in April 2022
Started from Horsebarn Trailhead and headed south. Trail was pretty easy to follow and signs were at all junctions where one had multiple choices. It was a bit hilly in spots though. We rode as far as Springdale (Phat Tire Bikes) due to the headwinds that day (03/22). Surface is in very good condition. The trail crosses some roads, but also "goes under" many of them, especially the busy ones. Definitely a gem.
This trail has a beautiful stretch that winds along Sager Creek lots of benches to sit and enjoy views of the creek. Great place for dogs and the dog park area is really nice.
There is so much new road and building construction along RRG that the trail has become hazardous to travel. Multiple areas where the trail is torn out, sometimes with dead end, sometimes with routing bike traffic into the street along with vehicle, truck traffic.
This includes all areas north of Fayetteville (Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville and Bella Vista).
Safe riding has been reduced to only 10 miles at south end of the RRG trail.
Did this trail today from Bella Vista Lake to Rogers (Bass Pro). Beautiful day! Great trails - loves it. It’s under construction right now so I would park farther south to avoid that, but otherwise it was great!! They’ve done a great job with these trails - highly recommend.
Phase one is now finished, 6.2 miles one way, asphalt & concrete. Plenty of parking at both ends. Follows Arkansas River & on top of the levee with several deer crossings. Downtown section has a lot of foot traffic, benches & goes close the the new US Marshall’s Museum.
