The Bentonville boom continues unabated. The latest news from Northwest Arkansas’ cycling haven is the advent of curated mountain bike-centric vacations. Case in point, this option from Las Vegas-based Escape Adventures.
The company’s six-day, family-friendly mountain biking tour gives riders of all ages the chance to explore 140 miles of Bentonville’s world-famous single track.
“Thanks to its existing natural beauty, and a thoughtful rebrand, Bentonville is blossoming into a delightful haven for mountain biking adventurers,” said Jared Fisher, Director of Escape Adventures, in a press release. “From paved trails to mountain bike trails, bike parks, and pump tracks, Bentonville and the surrounding area has a little bit of everything for every style and level of rider.”

Escape Adventure trip leaders will tailor riding itineraries to match skill and age level, so go ahead and bring the whole family on this one. Bentonville’s trail systems feature flow, berms, rock gardens, long descents, and everything else you could want. Every day on the tour brings a different mountain biking location: leafy trails in Coler Park, urban singletrack on the Slaughter Pen trail system, and pine-studded woods in Hobbs State Park, to name a few.
But it can’t be all shredding, all the time, right? For that reason, the accommodations include an oasis pool, water slide, and hot tub for those after-ride soaks. Riding days also include stops like the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and a tour of the Walmart headquarters. In the evenings, trip leaders and personal chefs provide a range of home-cooked meals to fuel the family for the next day’s adventuring.
Escape Adventures offers tours in March, April, May, June, Sept., and Oct. The package starts at $1,999 a person, with additional charges for lodging. Learn more at Escape Adventures.
