The 3rd Annual OZ Trails Off-Road allows participants to choose from the Ozark 15, Ozark 30 and Ozark 50 graduated route options. While "Ozark" pays homage to the OZ Trails network, each number represents the distance 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 $75 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 featured trails, including the Back 40 and Slaughter Pen trail systems in Bella Vista and Bentonville, and more.

The Ozark 50 challenges riders with just under 4,000 feet of climbing through a succession of short, punchy climbs that gradually tax the legs and lungs. The mass start rollout leads you out of Bentonville and into the Back 40 for you first taste of single track.
