1857 Trail at Fitzgerald Mountain Trail System

The 1857 trail is a spur off the Fitzgerald Mountain Trail System in Springdale.

The trail is a technical rock garden that features lots of boulders, drops and climbs.

A trailhead to the system is near Bayyari Park, 2400 Deer Valley St, Springdale, AR 72764. A new parking area for the system will be completed soon.

The entire Fitzgerald Mountain Trail System is build on 130 acres. Seven miles of trails are currently done according to a press release from the Walton Family foundation. The trail currently includes four miles of rocky, technical black trails and three miles of cross-country trails for hiking and walking on the north side of the mountain. An additional 3 miles of entry-level trails are currently under construction on the mountain’s south side, according to the release.

A Walton Family Foundation grant to the NWA Trailblazers provided the money to build the trail.
