Probably my first introduction to trail running was in high school training on Markham Trails, and some out at Lake Fayetteville. Went through most of college and grad school just running roads and moved back to Fayetteville and my wife and I signed up for the Inaugural Kessler trail run.

Catherine’s Crossing is a one-mile singletrack loop located behind Mercy Hospital in Rogers, Arkansas. It was designed for beginner mountain bikers, kids on balance bikes, and folks looking for a walk in nature. At the trailhead, there is a short pump track made of crushed gravel that riders can use to build confidence and basic bike handling skills. As well, there is plenty of greenspace, restrooms, hammock stands, and a pavilion, and it is accessible via the Razorback Greenway. It’s a great spot for families to spend an afternoon!
