Razorback Regional Greenway is Great Family Ride

The Razorback Regional Greenway is a great ride for families. All ages and experience levels can enjoy this 36-mile, primarily off-street, shared-use trail. Ride a section or ride the entire Greenway, which connects the downtown areas of FayettevilleJohnsonSpringdaleLowellRogers and Bentonville, their arts and entertainment districts, shopping opportunities, the University of Arkansas campus, playgrounds and neighborhoods.

You’ll pass through urban areas, over lots of bridges, through open greenspaces and along creeks. City parks are easy to access from the trail. It’s easy to make a day of it with a majority of your time biking, or with your time divided between biking, eating and hanging out along the way.

Solid and dashed lines identify safe passing areas. Road crossings are well marked or routed over, under or around roads where possible. And there are many facilities nearby, from bike shops to gas stations and convenience stores for those unforeseen circumstances.

New spurs and new sections of the Greenway continue to be built for even more fun in more places.

Plus look for entertaining events like the Square to Square Ride offered each spring and fall between the cities of Fayetteville and Bentonville.
