Biking the Razorback Greenway in Fayetteville

I

If you’re looking to explore the Razorback Greenway and you don’t live near the trail system, there are several places to park and ride in Fayetteville.

One of the easiest options is the 4-mile stretch between Gordon Long Park and Walker Park. You can begin at either location and take a break once you arrive at the opposite park before making the journey back to where you started. There are plenty of parking spaces and areas to relax or rest at each park.

The Razorback Greenway is comprised of many trails across the region. In this route, you’ll travel along Scull Creek Trail which turns into Frisco Trail near Wilson Park.

See the map below the photos for a more detailed look at the route.

Park Information

Gordon Long Park is on the east side of North Gregg Avenue at the intersection of Drake Street. The park includes restrooms, benches and a playground. Ride the trail south (see video) to Walker Park or north to Lake Fayetteville.

Walker Park is on the north side of 15th Street in south Fayetteville. The trail enters the north side of the park by the splash pad and skate park, and includes a direct path to the north parking lot on South Block Avenue.

The trail passes under Gregg Avenue, but be careful to stay in your lane since it’s a blind curve.


After the tunnel, you’ll come to a spur that leads back to Gregg Avenue near Sunbridge Drive.


This long stretch runs along the University of Arkansas cross country course.


This is the intersection at Meadow Valley Trail, which heads west through Agri Park and past the fairgrounds to Porter Road.


This is the intersection at Poplar Street. Fossil Cove Brewing is to the left at Birch Avenue.


After Poplar Street, you’ll reach a spur leading to Ash Street and several trailside businesses like Nomads Trailside.


The next intersection is Sycamore Street. There’s a sensor that detects trail users and activates a flashing light for motorists.


The next intersection is North Street. Stop and push the button to wait for a green light specifically for trail users.


Just past North Street is the Marion Orton Recycling Center and this 20-foot-tall iron and steel tree sculpture from Eureka Springs blacksmith artist John Stalling, with “bark” made from aluminum cans and branches that frame a recycling symbol.
