NWA Democrat-Gazette/FLIP PUTTHOFF Workers pour concrete Friday March 4, 2016 along the pedestrian-bicycle trail being built around Lake Atalanta.

The Razorback Greenway is the spine of the trail system, but cities have built their own connections to it, and more are planned as the system changes and grows.

Existing trails

Cities reported 170 miles of completed trails to the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission by the end of 2015. In the December report there were:

107.7 miles of shared-use paved trail

143.3 miles of natural surface unpaved trails

14 miles of shared roadway

18 miles of bike lanes

1 mile of protected bike lane
