Welcome to the City of West Fork, Arkansas  

West Fork, nestled in the Ozark Mountains, is ten miles south of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, Arkansas, and a half-hour drive to the home offices of Wal-Mart and Tyson.  West Fork is nearby to popular destinations such as the Crystal Bridges Museum, Beaver Lake, Devil's Den State Park with hiking and biking trails, and the War Eagle Mill Arts and Crafts Fair.   West Fork was founded in the 1880s on the banks of the West Fork of the White River.  Founded by the timber industry, milling, and railroad commerce, our historic homes, parks, library, Farmers Market and community events preserve a small town feel in an area of rapid growth with a diverse and an expanding economy.  Our beautiful Ozark Mountain scenery, mild four seasons, one of the best school districts in Arkansas, and opportunities for employment, recreation and higher education, make West Fork "Where the Best Begins".

Approximately 50 residents from West Fork, Greenland, and the surrounding area came together

Thursday evening at the West Fork Fire Station to share ideas about the Bike and Pedestrian

Trails in our towns, and the connection to the Razorback Greenway. We sat around tables and

discussed the economic impact that this trail system will have on our communities, the

beautification that comes with well-designed trails, the recreational advantages that will be

afforded our residents, the community improvements and future impact for our children, and the

overall sense of community that comes with working together for this great project.  As Mayor

Bill Groom stated, this is about people and how these trails can improve our lives and the future

of our children.  The Regional Planning Commission supplied maps that have all the trail

locations, such as Devil’s Den, Campbell Loop, Mineral Springs, and Woolsey, which have been

submitted by area residents to date. We used Post-it notes to record our ideas, and the suggestions

that were generated at Thursday’s forum have now been sent to regional planning for addition to

the maps.  These updated maps will be available in about a week. Mayor Groom and I believe

strongly that this joint effort will work to our advantage as the Regional Planning Commission

and Alta Greenway move forward to connect our towns and the beautiful surrounding areas to

the Razorback Greenway. Get involved.  Talk this up.  Attend future public meetings as we

continue to add ideas and refine those that will serve our community best. 

Charlie Rossetti, Mayor, West Fork
