The crowning feature of Centennial Park is a massive stone structure that has been described as Fayetteville's very own Stonehenge. Located at the top of Millsap Mountain, this hub includes stairs and tunnels incorporated into both cross-country and cyclo-cross courses. The UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships will be held at this park in January 2022, so while the park is open to visitors you can expect some ongoing construction.

Ride the 12-mile network to find a trail called Learners Permit, which is perfect for beginner mountain bike riders and those looking for an entry level experience. This trail has about three miles of flowy singletrack with some climbing but it doesn't have any real technical difficulties. The southern slope on Millsap Mountain provides almost four more miles of trails that are just as great without being too easy or difficult! The top of the Learners Permit is accessible via Junk Drawer. After navigating your way through some rocky sections and arriving at a long-abandoned pickup truck that has now been turned into a jump, you start to understand how this trail got its name. Meanwhile, Basket Case is short but rowdy for those who enjoy rocks with expert features like an on-and-off lily pad along the way! If you are looking for a good intermediate trail with some short but rowdy sections, try the Basket Case. It's packed full of rocks and has two expert features like an on-and-off lily pad!
