Walton Family Foundation Supports $1.16 Million Trail System In Springdale

Springdale is growing Northwest Arkansas’ mountain biking scene with a new $1.16 million trail system on Fitzgerald Mountain that will be the largest in the city.

The project is funded by grants from the Walton Family Foundation (WFF) to NWA Trailblazers, a nonprofit organization that builds trails in Northwest Arkansas. It will include 10 miles, and the first 7 miles of natural-surface trails will open June 29. The remaining 3 miles will be finished this fall.

“The natural rock formations at Fitzgerald Mountain create unique ride experiences accessible to cyclists of all skill levels,” Steuart Walton said in a statement. “Adding Springdale to the Oz Trails network will strengthen Northwest Arkansas’ reputation as a powerhouse mountain biking destination.”   MORE
