Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas in Rogers unveiled Oct. 2 nearly three miles of new public multi-use trails east of the hospital. The new Mercy Heritage Trails are the first mountain bike trails that can be accessed directly from the Razorback Greenway. The trails are also accessible from Bergant Terrace east of Mercy Hospital and from Mercy Trailhead south of the hospital on South Rife Medical Lane near Pinnacle Promenade. The trails were designed for beginning and intermediate mountain bikers, especially children. The 2.75 miles of trails were named by Mercy employees to reflect themes from Mercy history. The three trails include the half-mile Sisters’ Trail, three-quarter-mile Lantern Loop and 1.4-mile Catherine’s Crossing.
