Bentonville Wet Weather Riding Guide

March 22, 2022

You’ve planned to ride the mountain bike trails in Bentonville and Bella Vista, Arkansas.

✅ Your bags are packed.
✅ Your bikes are rented.
☔ You’ve checked the weather and see precipitation in the forecast. (ugh!)

Not to worry, we’ve pulled together all the local favorites for having fun… even with rain.

In Northwest Arkansas we have 3 main trail types. In this guide you’ll find natural surface (mostly rock) and paved as those do best in wet weather.
