The Northwest Arkansas mountain bike scene is marketed globally under the brand "Oz Trails," which is both a play on the word Ozark and a nod to the Land of Oz.

Coler Mountain Bike Preserve in Bentonville is appropriately ground zero for the experience that Oz Trails is offering. It's about as picturesque a slice of Ozark terrain as you'll find anywhere, and it's been master planned with enough thoughtful design to make it feel like a dream. If Dorothy were a mountain biker, and she clicked her ruby red cycling slippers together, she would absolutely wake up at The Homestead in the center of it all.
