Pocket-sized guides are now available to help cyclists, walkers and joggers navigate Fayetteville’s growing trail system.

The Fayetteville Visitors Bureau last week unveiled the new guide which features a fold-out map of over 40 miles of established trails and bikeways built throughout the city. Each guide includes a sturdy, water-resistant cover as well as basic safety and trail tips.

Aside from multi-use trail locations, the maps include recommended routes for each of the city’s on-street bikeways based on ease of use and a rider’s comfort level. The levels range from comfortable to difficult based on expected vehicle volume and speed, as well as road width. Areas with steep grades are also noted on each map.

Fayetteville trails coordinator Matt Mihalevich said he’s excited about the guides, which he said were published as a partnership between the city and the Visitors Bureau.

“The level of detail and designation of comfort levels are really unique,” said Mihalevich. “This is the first map that we have produced on this level and we are proud of the usability. The way the map folds out, it’s perfect for exploring Fayetteville on the go.”

Mihalevich said the free guides are available at the Fayetteville Visitors Center, the City of Fayetteville Development Services Office, Fayetteville Parks & Recreation Department and all Fayetteville bicycle shops.
