01 // FITZGERALD MOUNTAIN
Imagine ribbons of dirt punctuated by stretches of boulders that have been expertly knit together into undulating waves of trail. That’s what you’ll get at Fitzgerald Mountain, just east of downtown Springdale, Arkansas. Fitzgerald’s many features run the gamut, from a ‘strider’ course for kids just starting to learn to bike to some of the largest expert-level features in the country. The whole network of trails adds up to 11 miles, at least for now, but the technical terrain, rocky descents and punchy climbs will make it feel like 20. Once you’re done, grab lunch or dinner at one of the taquerias on Emma Avenue and sip on a cider at Black Apple Crossing, the only cider brewery in the state.
