Since 1997, this organization has been hand-building a better community.

The Ozark Off Road Cyclists (or OORC) is a regional nonprofit that has been nurturing a volunteer community to build and maintain soft surface trails for over two-decades. From Fayetteville to Eureka Springs, the River Valley and in between, the OORC has played a large role in establishing numerous trail systems across the Arkansas Ozarks. Hikers, mountain bikers, trail runners, and dog walkers have all benefited from the efforts of the Ozark Off Road Cyclists.

In 2017 alone, the Ozark Off Road Cyclists fostered over 4300 hours of trail stewardship in multiple communities including Eureka Springs, Fayetteville, Siloam Springs, Ft. Smith, and Russellville. That represented over $85,000 in volunteer impact throughout the region.

Over the years hundreds of volunteers have left a legacy by building and maintaining trail with the OORC.
