Mountain Bike Trail
Construction of the five-mile JBU mountain biking trail is completed though signage for parking and trail head is still being installed. The trail is soft-surface and runs along Sager Creek, opening into two different trail systems on the north and west sides of campus. The trail covers terrain with various elevations around JBU’s main campus and has been designed as a “gateway” trail to be enjoyed by riders of various skill levels. The trail is one of several initiatives to develop a broader cycling community in Northwest Arkansas. This project was made possible through the generosity of the Walton Family Foundation and Simmons Foods.
