Coler Mountain Bike Preserve is a mountain biker’s paradise, offering a truly progressive mountain bike trail system created in honor of the area’s first settlers. Beginning just about .5 miles west of downtown Bentonville, Arkansas, this Design + Build project pushes the limits of mountain bike trail construction in Northwest Arkansas. Its trails feature multiple flowy jump lines, contour flow lines, technical downhill lines, and technical flow for the most diverse array of options in Northwest Arkansas. Stone, wood, and metal features elevate the landscape on many of Coler’s trails, including the crowning jewel of the preserve: The Peak One Hub. Created in collaboration with Modus Studio and L&L Metal, The Hub sends riders down one of three thrilling trails all from one location.
From Modus Studio:
“The Hub is a natural weathering object mysteriously rising in the middle of the forest. It is a functional nexus for comradery, rest, and anticipation of the downhill journeys ahead. A place hidden in nature, it is a hub for interaction and the launching point to the most epic single track in Coler Mountain Bike Preserve. Located at the top of the northernmost hill and at a juncture of multiple trails, The Hub provides riders with a starting point, juiced with speed as they drop into the intermediate jump trail, the expert technical trail and the expert jump trail.”
Coler is divided into two main areas: the West side, optimized for beginner and intermediate riders, and the East side, optimized for expert riders.
