A perfect 2 Paw family intro to Slaughter Pen and beginner mountain biking. Park at the Hidden Springs parking area at the bottom of NW A St and jump directly onto the Slaughter Pen greenway heading South. Dabble on the flat gentle single track that parallels the greenway or bail back to the paved surface when needed. Playgrounds, bathrooms, water, and great advanced mountain bike spectating are all along the route. This is an out and back route. However, the greenway will continue all the way to Crystal Bridges museum and downtown Bentonville which makes for a wonderful point to point ride if you drop a car on one end or send one parent back for the car. Leave plenty of time to throw rocks in the creek along the way and search for Great Blue Herons and other local animals!
