Hot Springs is embarking, with Walton Family Foundation help, on the construction of 44.6 miles of mountain bike trails, to be known as the Northwoods Trail System.

It will be built on city-owned property in the Cedar Glades area of northern Hot Springs, which includes hills and three lakes. The first segment will be 16 miles and work on the rest will begin after the first phase.

Visit Hot Springs, the convention and visitors agency, will match a $648,421 Walton grant to start the work.

Steve Arrison, CEO of Hot Springs, said the project should be an "enormous economic engine" as a prime place for mountain bikers to visit. More details:
