Mt. Kessler is quickly becoming the go-to destination for Fayetteville locals to get that in-the-middle-of-nowhere feel while only being a few miles away from downtown. On the South side, you have the freshly developed Kessler Mountain Regional Park, a beautiful multifaceted park that has something for everyone, including a trailhead to the Kessler Mountain trails. On the North side, you have the Ozark Mountain Smokehouse, headquarters of Fayettechill Clothing Co, Kessler Greenways Initiative, and the Ozark Offroad Cyclist. If you've come for outdoor community and/or incredible trail, you've found it.
