Fayetteville’s Frisco Trail was recognized by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy as its Trail of the Month for December 2013. The group featured the the trail in an article on its website.
The 1.3-mile trail currently extends from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard north to Scull Creek Trail at Prospect Street. The city began work on a half-mile extension of the trail in August 2013. The new section will include a tunnel under Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, three bridges, and a signalized crossing on South School. The extension is scheduled to be open to the public by April.
The trail is a segment of the 36-mile Razorback Regional Greenway that extends from south Fayetteville to Bella Vista. The full Greenway will be opened later this year.
The Frisco Trail utilizes an abandoned and active railroad corridor for the multiuse trail. The Rails To Trails Conservancy is a nonprofit organization that works to create a nationwide trail network from former rail lines.
