The Inaugural Oz Trails Off-Road allows participants to choose from the Ozark 25, Ozark 35 and Ozark 50 graduated route options. While "Ozark" pays homage to the Oz Trails network, each number represent the distances of each route in miles (+/-).
All three routes will challenge riders with varied rolling terrain connecting world-class purpose-built singletrack for mountain biking in the beautiful and rugged Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas.
Boasting more than 200 miles of trails connecting communities, Northwest Arkansas has become one of the hottest new mountain bike destinations in America thanks to more than $30 million invested into trails development over the last five years alone. The Oz Trails Off-Road will celebrate this community investment by taking participants on numerous feature trails, including the Slaughter Pen trail system, the Back 40 trail system in Bella Vista, AR and more.
The Ozark 25 is the beginner-level “fun ride”, featuring a total of 3,100 feet of elevation gain. After rolling out of downtown Bentonville for the first seven miles on mixed terrain (pave` & dirt), the course hits singletrack, meandering around Lake Bella Vista and into Blowing Springs Park, connecting to the Back 40 Loop via South Upper Trail. Riders will then experience Rago trail before returning to Lake Bella Vista and hitting Smuggler's Run.
The Ozark 25 then enters the Slaughter Pen trail network on Armadillo's Last Stand, transitioning to a roller coaster ride on Ozone towards Crystal Bridges Museum, finishing with All American trail.
And unlike any other Off-Road Series event, the Oz Trails Off-Road finish line is only a quarter mile past the final dirt singletrack in downtown Bentonville.
