Terrific trail network recently built in part with a grant from the Walton Foundation. Many trail-building groups have contributed their designs, resulting in a varied experience. Something for everyone.

Food & Drink

After the Ride: Local Favorites

Gusano's Pizzeria Ashley is the best waitress EVER! Ask for her and tip her well. She deserves it!!
SUBWAY The Spicy Italian Sub...mmmm :)
Las Fajitas By far the best queso I have ever had!
SONIC Drive In The best Sonic out there.
El Pueblito I had their tamales, they were great. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service was attentive.
Duffer's Cafe Breakfast ;)
Eleven @Crystal Bridges The beans and cornbread are an Eleven favorite--often worth the long lines at lunch.
Fred's Hickory Inn Must have a Steak!
Acropolis The gyros are good. Don't sleep on this place ......
Braum's Ice Cream & Dairy Stores Best burgers of any fast food chain, and at a very good price. All-beef patties from their own private herds, unlike the TVP mystery meat served elsewhere.
Crepes Paulette This place can be tricky to get too if you aren't familiar with the area, but the owners are super nice and the crepes are fantastic! I am a fan of any of their sweet crepes! Definitely worth it!
213 NE A St., Bentonville AR — (479) 250-1110
Onyx Coffee Lab Their coffee is really good. This is the least bitter blend I've had in my life! I love it!!!❤️❤️❤️ Got the Speedball.
Table Mesa Bistro Best food I've ever had...for $14. At least there's a silver lining to my many future trips to Bentonville
Flying Fish I tried the 3 fish tacos - they were great and more than I could eat.
Tusk & Trotter The glazed Pom frites (fries) are the best! The bartender recently won an award on a state competition, if your looking for something new to drink, he's the man to make it!
110 SE A St, Bentonville AR — (479) 268-4494
Yeyo's Mexican Grill Get the burrito. Its amazing
Pedaler's Pub Be sure to ask for everything well done. Both pizza and wings were rare to medium rare. Service was friendly but cleanliness has room for improvement.
410 SW A St, Bentonville AR — (479) 268-3285
Las Palmas There Supreme nacho's are the best in the state!
Wingstop The Garlic Parmesan boneless wings ROCK
Thai Kitchen The noodles run hotter than the curries. Adjust your points accordingly.
707 SW A St, Bentonville AR — (479) 464-7288
