This is a great trail and well worth the drive from Bentonville. It's rocky and technical, a lot like the Barton Creek Greenbelt with plenty of features to take advantage of on your ride. The trail is about a mile from Centennial so you can make a day of it and head down from Bentonville to cover two at once. Kessler is definitely the more challenging of the two and will give you a lot more climbing.
