Recently while having coffee with a friend, we decided to schedule mornings to explore the new Fayetteville walking trails.  Our first morning we met at Panera Bread on Front Street for a cup of coffee to go.  The Mud Creek Trail crosses under HWY 71B about 200 yards north of Panera.  Total trail distance is 2.1 miles with the HWY 71B access being about equal distance from each end.  The trail is paved and provides a great two way path for walkers, bikes or strollers.  A round trip in either direction is about 2 miles.  We did both directions round trip for a great 4 mile hike that made us ready for a second cup at Panera.
