A 12-foot-wide, meandering asphalt trail is to be built soon by the Hill Place contractors through Pinnacle Prairie as one of the conditions of approval of the Hill Place project. It will connect walkers, joggers, bicyclists and nature lovers with W. 12th Street to the southeast and with sidewalks in the apartment complex leading east to W. 11th Street and S. Duncan Avenue to provide a circular paved route around the nature area and the new area of city park connected to World Peace Wetland Prairie's Northeast corner. From the prairie trail, pedestrians and cyclists also can walk about four blocks north inside the apartment complex, crossing a new traffic bridge over the Town Branch of the West Fork of the White River and reaching the Indian Trail that roughly follows the old right of way of the east-west railroad. A former railroad tunnel will allow trail-users to go northwest to Fayetteville High School and the University of Arkansas.
