BELLA VISTA — Join in cel­e­brat­ing all things trails dur­ing the an­nual Back 40 Fall for All trail fes­ti­val.

The City of Bella Vista will host this event at Blow­ing Springs Park, start­ing at 8 a.m. Satur­day, Nov. 10. The park is lo­cated at 700 Blow­ing Spring Road and can be ac­cessed off Mercy Way from U.S. 71.

Lo­cal re­tail­ers, com­mu­nity groups, cy­cling ad­vo­cacy groups, churches and more have come to­gether with the city to plan this com­mu­nity event, and res­i­dents of all ages are in­vited.

If you use Bella Vista’s trails reg­u­larly or have never stepped foot on any of them, this is your chance to gather with your com­mu­nity to share your love of the trails or get to know more about what you have in your own back­yard.

The event will kick off with a no-drop group trail run hosted by Rush Running Co. and will con­tinue through the day with guided bike rides for all abil­i­ties, kids’ bike rides, mul­ti­ple in­for­ma­tional guided hikes, food trucks, ven­dors and more.

Guided rides will be led by the Bella Vista Bike Club, Mojo Cy­cling, Ozark Of­fRoad Cy­clists and Lewis and Clark. The kids’ ride will be led by Friends of Arkansas Sin­gle­track (FAST).

Three guided hikes will also be of­fered, at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., and will be led by the Arkansas mas­ter nat­u­ral­ists. Come, learn about things liv­ing and grow­ing near the trails, such as trees, bugs, birds and more.

The FAST Mountain Bike Pa­trol and Bella Vista Po­lice Depart­ment Bike Pa­trol will be out keep­ing an eye on ev­ery­one us­ing the trails, and the Bella Vista Fire Depart­ment plans to show up with a truck or two.
