 So cool to see my home town make it on PB in such grand fashion ... Almost surreal knowing that I was part of building so much of what was in that video

 NWA looking awesome! I'll be there first weekend in June to ride and kayak. Can anyone point me to a resource for learning more about the trails in that video? I'm not a dirt jumper but will have my '16 Stumpy FSR and want to check out all those spots.

 EDIT: found oztrailsnwa.com , great site! Were there any places in the video not listed on oztrails?

 @hcole623: oztrailsnwa.com - Bentonville is a main hub with trails like Slaughter Pen, Blowing Springs, Lake Atalanta, Rail Yard all within 10-15 min. Further out are some awesome trails as well - Kayaking the Mulberry (from Turner Bend) and Buffalo (from Boxley Bridge) is also some top spots.

 Wal-Mart can build some really nice trails!

 In order to get the full experience in Bentonville, it's recommended you ride the trail on a Wal-Mart bike. Then be sure to return it to the store after your trip is over.

 Great vid!! Had no idea Arkansas had such nice trails!!!

 Brilliant video concept and execution. I will put OZ on my "list".
  • + 3
 Agreed - THAT is how you do a video to attract new tourism! That looks destination trip worthy (to me).

 I lived in northern AR for 2 years - Bull Shoals area. The potential for that state is unlimited. It's population is very low, especially in the north. The people that I met all throughout that area are unique and incredibly friendly. I haven't been back in 15 years but now that there is more than just Syllamo in that area, I suppose I have a reason to now.

 Someone teach me how to live this life.

 Took me a moment to realize that was Tyler McCaul!

 Another 100+ miles are being built by 4 professional trail building companies. It's unbelievable here, the trails can pretty much all be accessed by a central paved trail that goes down to fayetteville.
  • + 1
 It always helps to have a rider like Tyler McCaul shredding the trails, and what you saw was a focus on the flowing parts of the trails with high berms etc...speed sections. But there are PLENTY of rocky sections here that will test even the most skilled technical rider. Watch for some upcoming films that will highlight "mere mortal" riders hitting some of the rocky technical sections!

 That S berm section he was doubling though!! I have some friends that moved there about 5 years ago, and I remember thinking they were crazy for wanting to move to AR. Now I'm thinking I'm the crazy one for not going to visit them...

 This is only part of it. We have at least four trails/trail systems on the IMBA "epics" list. And I'm surprised T-mac didn't go to Lake Leatherwood.
  • + 2
 Exactly what I thought. Leatherwood may not be as well kempt as the rest of the area. We haven't been out there in a while.

 Yeah, it has been way too long.

 I ride slaughter pen a few times most weeks, 40 mins from the house, but only 15 from work, so I just pack everything in the car and hit it after work. For my money, best place to ride around this area. No annoying hikers usually, and definitely no horses!! Different trails for skill levels, free ride and downhill sections, plus it connects to paved greenway. Wish I lived in bentonville lol

 We've got rocks, and here's proof. This is more of an indication of the typical trails in Arkansas, and the beauty of the Ozarks. No shredders highlighted here, but it gives you an idea of what to expect! www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilX9H2Vj-9c

 It's all fake, move along, go home folks, nothing to ride here. lol Yeah the secret is out.

 Looks like some killer trails down in AK!

 You mean AR?

 @Pcarlson: yes, that's what he means

 @upchuckyeager: oops

 Welcome to Arkansas your next vacation spot! and we have way more than that video can even think about showing!
  • + 1
 As a Southern California transplant I must say living here in bentonville ar is a real treat. I'm telling ya, the trails are kept immaculent and there are tons of events and workshops to teach the little ones to ride!

 Hey everyone! Here are the tracks featured in the video:

Making Breakfast by Twin Peaks

 That was just the tip of the ice-burg. Don't forget Lincoln lake, Mt. Kessler, and Thunder Chicken

 Wish they would have included a couple of the more natural cut trails such as My Sequoia and Kessler but nice to see some publicity for all the work put into the trail systems in NWA!!

 hahahah EXACTLY what I thought when I saw those dirt sidewalks. Swoopy can be fun, but.... leave a bump or two in there!

 @bikekrieg: TRUST ME...we have rocky technical stuff too. It just wasn't highlighted in this film.

 @Razorbiker: ^^^^^^^what he said.

 So awesome to see the trails I ride on being ripped by a pro! So epic! He makes jumping thoughs berms looks so easy but it's a lot more bigger in life compared to the video!

 Love seeing NWA being repped and that's only a small snippet of what we've got and have coming in the future!
  • + 1
 Love the trails in Arkansas! Lucky the wife likes camping down there, because Saint Louis doesn't have anything close to this good.
  • + 3
 So glad to call NWA my home.
  • + 2
 Ahhh yes, life in the Ozarks! But my question is, when was T-mac in my neck of the woods, and why wasn't I informed!?!?
  • + 3
 Finally some love for my Ozarks!

 Balancing Work & Play.. Best way to put it altogether in a vid~ ;p
  • + 2
 This was exactly like my last business trip there. Worked all day and rode until I could not see at night.
  • + 2
 @weezor: Next time you're in town, bring a light man!! We ride at night all the time, and there's no restrictions!

 Spent last summer in bentonville hitting these trails and they are every bit as cool as they appear in the video.

 just moved here from ny. pretty dope trails. a bit smooth compared to the east coast roots and rocks im used to but thumbs up!
  • + 1
 Now if someone would start building trail around the central Ar/Ok border where there's some quality elevation, i.e. Cavanal Hill in Poteau, Ok
  • + 2
 Sounds like you need to invest in a shovel and Mcleod!

 This doesn't happen in Arkansas.....????

 This does happen in Arkansas!!!!

 @Hotrod4989: where's Arkansas?

 @Rider656: Its in the United States

 Yup, Those look fun.

 Dang, that is an amazing trail system. I wish San Diego could get on point like this. More trails, less houses.
  • + 1
 Why every town isn't investing like this, I'm not sure.. Trails are communities, it's proven. Also, Tyler Mccaul?
  • + 1
 Nice layout of the trails, starting at 1:57

 Amazing how many trail systems there is around here now.
