Blowing Springs/Back 40

Blowing Springs lies in the southern part of Bella Vista. Caves, waterfalls, springs and cliff riding are a few of the features of Blowing Springs. The Back 40 is not only a testament to world class riding in the Ozarks but also the direction mountain biking is heading in Arkansas.

Coler Preserve

Recently opened Coler is built on land designated as a mountain bike preserve. Although you might think you are in the backcountry of the Ozarks while riding Coler, the trails are actually located about two miles west of downtown Bentonville.
