Review: Absolutely amazing. You can really tell they take pride in the park and take very good care of it. This is one of those places you can ride all day and wish you had the energy to keep going if there is any daylight left.. I highly recommend this park and will return very soon.

Review: Great trail system. Unfortunately they are tearing out their downhill run to do work to the interstate. So no more cool wall rides at least for now I'm told.

Review: I seriously want to move to Fayetteville after riding these trails. So much fun, clean, and well maintained. Progressive Trail Design does wonderful work. I wish they would get down here to Little Rock!

Review: Me and some of my buddies live in the area and ride Slaughter Pen just about every weekend and more in the summer. We are amateurs at mtb but we have done just about every trail and hadnt had a problem. The downhill can get rough bu the best is the free ride park.

Review: I've been hearing a lot about these trails and finally got a chance to experience them with my wife. We had a blast! They are all laid out well (we only got to ride Phase I and II trails) with occasional unique features (natural and man made) just challenging enough to test our skills without getting us in over our heads. And if we came up to a feature that we didn't feel comfortable doing there was an easy way around it. The free ride section and downhill run with bermed turns and table tops add an experience not found in many trail systems. We were also impressed with the trails' proximity to the greenway and town. I highly recommend this system for any level rider.

Review: Wonderful trail system. Everything from easy trails beside the creek, to a one way freeride down hill. Also a jump/ skills park. Lots of man made optional features to keep advanced riders grinning. Only rode Phase 1 2. Map shows a Phase 3 plus other trails nearby.

Review: This trail is pretty sweet.. if only it were longer.. It has a little bit of everything. There are a bunch of loops with some decent little climbs, a pump track, and a corkscrew that's pretty neat. The downhill portions are really flowy- a ton of fun. There is even a small free-ride park at the bottom of one loop. For being right in town, this trail gets 5 stars. They are linking this trail with Blowing Springs soon from what I hear. That would def put a smile on my face!

Review: Great Place to ride, most trails are marked. My buddy and I ride here every Tuesday morning. Three trail networks close together all connected by a concrete path for easy travel to and from. The signs say 20 Miles but i believe there is more as new trails have been added since the opening years ago. everything from big jump/freeride to difficult MTB. Difficulty varies and offers something for everyone. If you live within driving distance it is definitely worth a try!!

Review: Lots of fun. Many built in features and trails are always being changed/added. The trails can be as easy or difficult as you make them and it's a great place to work on technical skills.

Review: This is the first trail system I road in Jan of 2012.It had some neat climbs, and my fingers were never cold again after the start.The trails were clean and no stray branches. there are a lot of features like little bridges for fun and some challenging approaches. I chickened out in the middle of one and kinda went off high side and down a slope. Lots of fun. Got me hooked. There are also other trails near buy as well as paved trails connecting.

Review: My wife and I have begun riding these trails. I am so very impressed with these trails and believe they are ideal for beginning riders. I used to race Mtb bikes, so I have done a great many trails through out the state. I am loving these trails. They are all very short with the longest only being around 3 miles. However, there are varying levels of difficulty to make it fun for even advanced riders. What I especially like is that it is NOT a rock pit. Most of the trails flow very nicely with the occasional roots and rocks, but a person can keep momentum nicely. Several of the trails have bridges built on the trail that make for some very fun riding. One trail has some banked bridges that allow you to zip around the turn with speed. Other trails have obstacles that I would not attempt. Today, I saw a section with logs stacked to make sort of a ramp, that then led to a narrow bridge that was up and down and angled. However, all the obstacles are optional and are built in such a a way that riders can bypass them without breaking momentum. Some of the climbs require my wife to walk, but she has found "goal" climbs that she is either getting up, or getting close to conquering. Even if you do have to walk, it will not be for very far and then you can remount. If there are beginning or intermediate riders from around the state or out of state, that enjoy making Mtn bike riding a part of their vacation, you should definitely make Bentonville, Ar a destination. There are plenty of things to do in NW Ar for entertainment and you have quick, easy access to the trails. I'm not sure if advanced riders would find these trails as challenging as say the Womble or Eureka Springs, but I think they are a MUST RIDE for those getting into the sport.

Review: A nice collection of trails. Several loops and options to choose from to make your own trail and distance. Great work by the locals to add in obstacles and jumps! Great trails, just wish there were more miles.

Review: This is the best trail I have ever been on. There are tons of options from Log rides around every turn, jumps, freeriding, and miles of great singletrack. I would go back here any day. There is so much more to this course then the Slaughter Pen web site shows.
