25 Things to Do in Rogers #22: The Railyard Bike Park

Calling all riders! Located in downtown Rogers a few blocks from the Arkansas-Missouri Railroad. A natural surface dirt-jump bike park that accommodates all level riders beginner to expert, and different types of bicycles, striders to full suspension bikes to dirt jumpers to BMX. If you do not own a bike check out PLAYTri Rogers or Phat Tire Bike Shop for their rentals, located a few blocks away right in downtown Rogers.

The Railyard Bike Park is divided into Kids Zone, Session Zone, and Slopestyle Zone there is signage throughout the park with the skill-level for each path respectively easiest, easy, more difficult, very difficult, extremely difficult. Look for the Novice Line, Beginner Line, and the Intermediate Line to test your skills. Riders can endure obstacles including 8 jump boxes, drop offs, a mulch jump, wall rides, whale tales, and concrete lips. The signature piece is a full-scale recycled rail car set on real railroad tracks that cyclists ride through.

There is an amazing two-story pavilion with a view of the entire park and everything you need to host a private gathering. Amenities include a large parking lot, tables and seating, restrooms, observation decks, drinking fountains, lights, a bike wash station, and even a doggie station. 

Spend some time at the dog park where the dogs may run free without a leash, take the paved trail that welcomes dogs, or off-road onto the multi-use bike trail. Follow either of the trails and you will end up at Lake Atalanta or on the Pleasant Ridge trails. The park hours are 6 a.m. – 9 p.m., unless closed due to events or inclement weather.
