The Slaughter Pen Hollow Trail System

Average Rating:    (4.38 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 16

The Slaughter Pen Hollow Mountain Bike Trail System is scheduled to open April 21, 2007. The trail has become a reality thanks to Tom Walton and the Arkansas Trail Blazers. They hired The Grey Barn, LLC. to build the trail starting in January 2007. The trail was designed and constructed by two OORC members. Don West and Aaron Hanley. The completed trail includes around 5 miles of fast and flowing singletrack that blankets the mountainside between the north side of Bentonville and I-540. The trail has something for all level of riders, including beginners to experts. Expect to see a combination of singletrack, log rides, drops, jumps, log overs, and teeter totters. The trail construction was completed March 1. Trail signs and Kiosks should be up by the first week in April.
A freeride skills park has been added due to the efforts of OORC members Nathan Woodruff and Chris Crone. Freeriders can enjoy the table top jumps, bermed turns, ladder bridge drops, and wall ride.

Summary:
Slaughter Pen is one of the best trails in the country. The Progressive Trail Design crew built these beautiful trails. It's super fast and well groomed. Log rides through out the whole park, mini doubles scattered all over and a pro level dirt jump park that has a four cross course, several dirt jump lines, two giant wall rides and a pump track. Top notch trail all around. I give this trail 5 flaming hot ones!

Recommended Route:
All of them

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Devils Den, Hobbs, Lake Leatherwood

Summary:
Pretty good trail system with some challenging sections. Seed Tick Shuffle is the least intimidating trail for beginners since it's pretty easy and not on the side of a hill. Other than a couple more trails for beginners, I can't think of anything Slaughter Pen needs except parking now that the clinic put up a sign threatening to tow vehicles.

Recommended Route:
Phase 2 and 3 aren't very crowded, so I prefer to ride those sections.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hobbs, Lake Leatherwood, Devil's Den
