Slaughter Pen

Route Description


TRAIL #9: Visitors to Slaughter Pen trails in Bentonville enjoy a truly unique mountain bike experience. The 20-plus miles of singletrack flow alongside the paved Razorback Regional Greenway and by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art where the path is dotted with public art.

The Slaughter Pen system includes trails ranging in difficulty from beginners (on the All-American and Seed Tick Shuffle trails) to expert (on Scott’s Alley and Medusa trails) with connector trails taking riders between the various hubs of the system. The trail is the home of the annual Slaughter Pen Jam, a mountain bike race and festival held each fall.

Visitors can park at Compton Gardens in downtown Bentonville or at the Bentonville Bark Park on North Walton Boulevard to access the trail. An online map is available at www.NWATrails.org.
