Mount Fitzgerald is one of those places that you always say "we need to ride that one day" but it seems to get forgotten because it is a good 30 minutes south of Bentonville, closer to Fayetteville. But you need to add this to your list, it was a lot of fun. The center of the system has one trail called "The Best Trail Ever" and though it was a pretty strong billing, that trail did not disappoint. There are a few really interesting features including a large wooden feature that we opted not to try on this ride.

 We left a few miles back on the table, but I could easily see us coming back again in the future to ride this again and explore some of the parts that we missed.
