Planned for more than 20 years, the Razorback Regional Greenway is now a reality. This 36-mile, primarily off-road, shared-use trail connects six different downtowns, arts and entertainment districts, shopping, and the University of Arkansas campus.
From Mena on the Talimena National Scenic Byway, it's a nine-mile sufferfest up Rich Mountain, the state's second highest peak, and the site of splendid Queen Wilhelmina State Park, Arkansas's Castle in the Clouds.
From the intersection at Hwy. 64 and Hwy. 155, it's about three miles of rolling hills and one wall of work between you and the top of Mount Nebo. Rising 1,350 feet, it's a very challenging ascent with several sharp switchbacks.
