“Hand-Cut Hollow” will add 8 miles of classic handbuilt singletrack to existing networks

Grand Junction, CO: Singletrack Trails Inc, a leading designer, and creator of sustainable shared-use trails, celebrated the groundbreaking of 8 miles of hand-built singletrack in downtown Bentonville, Arkansas. Construction is expected to be completed in the spring of 2021.

The “Hand-Cut Hollow” was born out of a need to bring a more intimate riding experience to the greater network of trails in the Bentonville ecosystem. The new trails will consist of 8 miles of classic hand-built singletrack, connecting existing trail networks along the North Bentonville Trail with previously unexplored terrain east of Interstate 49. Trails in the system will travel through a variety of different zones, providing riders a unique backcountry style riding experience.

The hand-built nature of the project was a key factor in considering who would build the new trail network, as Hogan Koesis, Soft Surface Project Manager at Northwest Arkansas Trailblazers noted, “NWA Trailblazers chose to partner with Singletrack Trails for the Hand-Cut Hollow, based upon their expertise in building world-class, sustainable, classic hand-built singletrack.”

Regarding Singletrack Trails as the contractor chosen for the project, Greg Mazu, Chief Encouragement Officer at Singletrack Trails said, “The opportunity to partner with Northwest Arkansas Trailblazers on this project, and implement classic hand-built singletrack is a dream come true. We’re honored to work on a project that will benefit Bentonville’s outdoor recreation community while adding more world-class trails to an already incredible network.”
