Review: Spent a couple of days sampling some of Slaughter Pen (Phase 1) last week. Rode Armadillo's Last Stand, Down Hill Flow, Downhill Connector, Creek Trail, The Return, Medusa and Tetamagouche. The reviews already here pretty much cover things accurately. Nice trails, as well as a nice MTB community. So if you're visiting or passing through, there's more than just the trails. Not just in Bentonville, but in the whole NWA (North West Arkansas) area as well. Bike friendly locals, helpful bike shops, etc. Some stand-outs for me... very good signage. Really helps the out of towners. Really well maintained trails. Although hilly, the trails are cut such that climbs are really gradual. No heavy grinding needed. Would i go again? Sure! Half day's drive is worth it considering the number and quality of trails in NWA. There's everything from 2 miles to 50 miles , from short travel XC hard pack to longer travel trail rock gardens, along with great scenery.

Review: Something for all skill levels. Lots of cool features, drops and jumps. However, I found a lot of sections that were pretty average and ended up going back to my favorites over and over. Overall for bentonville I felt it was overhyped but I say that because I keep hearing this compared to crested butte. This is a great place for mountain biking, especially in the northern off season but no crested butte.

Review: Nice trails, has some more serious drops and jumps next to easier routes so you can ride with someone more or less experienced. It's very beautiful and they are constantly improving! There are paved trails running nearby so it suites everyone!

Review: This is a great trail! We just done the down hill course and planning on hit some of the other trails! Tell they put a lot of time in money into them. Really fun and can't wait to see more of it!

Review: Rode phase 1 and half of phase 2. Great trail system, and well marked. The intermediate trails were not super difficult on technical skills, but the lose rock posed sliding out issues around certain areas. Just go faster to keep momentum. Hope to come back to complete the rest of the phases/trails.
