Video: Building 50 Miles of Singletrack in 2 Years in Arkansas

More than two years in the making, this video tells the story of how and why the 50-mile Little Sugar trail system was made. From ground breaking to the opening of the last mile, the trail builders, project managers, and the mayor worked closely together to create something unique. This level of collaboration and community "buy-in" seems to be the key to the rapid trail growth in NW Arkansas. These trails have brought access to special spots that were previously unknown, increased outdoor opportunities for all residents, and a richer quality of life for those who live here.

 Man, love these trails. The feeling I had when stumbling on that cave—so cool. Need to go back with a flashlight and properly explore it. And that massive bridge at the end, and the gravity zone, and the massive berms…

Like @Moonie2123 said, nothing to see here!

 Thanks! There were a few delays in completing the tunnels and trails and also, COVID. But man, the extra surprises we got along the way including that Huntley jump zone by Gravity Logic makes the loop network so much fun to ride.

 @garrettstories: no doubt. Huntley still blows me away. Went there on Sunday after several days of rain, and it was still in prime shape.
