The National Park Service, together with the City of Hot Springs and Visit Hot Springs, announce the opening of the new Pullman Trail. This 0.65-mile trail connects hikers and mountain bikers from downtown Hot Springs to the Northwoods Trails through a section of Hot Springs National Park. Parking is available at the trailhead, located at the end of Pullman Avenue.
Work begins Monday (February 10) on a new trail that will connect the Park Avenue Community in the northern part of Hot Springs to the phenomenally popular Northwoods Trail System. The project is a $104,000 grant from the Walton Family Foundation at the recommendation of Steuart Walton and Tom Walton.
The National Park Service has published a regulation allowing the park superintendent to permit bicycles on a 0.65-mile trail connection within the park. This new trail will connect hikers and bicyclists with an extensive network of recreational trails in the City of Hot Springs’ neighboring park.
An impressive new bike park that includes a skills section and a jump section will open at the Cedar Glades Trailhead of the Northwoods Trail System on Saturday, November 16, as part of the Güdrun three-day mountain bike festival in Hot Springs.
