Razorback Greenway

The Razorback Greenway is a 40 mile (64 km), primarily off-road, paved trail that travels on a north-south axis through Northwest Arkansas. Dedicated on May 2, 2015, the Greenway connects Kessler Mountain Regional Park in Fayetteville to Lake Bella Vista north of Bentonville, while also accessing many schools, businesses and cultural amenities along the route.

The NWA Razorback Greenway Alliance

Established in 2020, the purpose of the Alliance is to provide a multi-jurisdictional approach to trail governance to ensure the Razorback Greenway remains best in class nationally and continues to improve and innovate. The seven communities represented are Bella Vista, Bentonville, Rogers, Lowell, Springdale, Johnson and Fayetteville.

In addition to commissioning a fully updated brand identity package and expanding the mileage of the Greenway the Alliance has developed a plan for improvements to the maintenance, facilities, and operational infrastructure of the Razorback Greenway.
