Wal-Mart bike trail extension proposed

Okay, so that’s not the official name of the trail – but development of the Slaughter Pen Hollow Mountain Bike Trail in north Bentonville, Arkansas is being driven by some heavy hitters, including Tom Walton, grandson of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton. Although I’ve never ridden the trail I *think* it may be listed here on singletracks as Armadillo’s Last Stand.

The article I read mentions that the 5 mile trail just opened in April and already there is a proposal to extend the trail another 7 miles toward the Bentonville Square. The Walton Foundation may even pick up the tab for construction which is pretty awesome. Perhaps I’ll buy my next bike from Wal-Mart to say thanks 😉
