Cornerstone Ridge residents that have pets and like to walk daily will find that Bentonville weather is usually cooperative for pedestrian travel. Winters are relatively mild with temperatures usually not dipping far below freezing at night. A jacket to keep out cool winter breezes when strolling with your dog is generally adequate for winter walking. Small amounts of snow occasionally occur in the winter and can impede your walk. However, amounts are not usually significant and snow cover does not generally linger. Summers, however, can be very hot in Bentonville. Most residents prefer to walk their dogs early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the daytime heat which can be uncomfortable to hike in.
The terrain in Cornerstone Ridge is relatively flat with some gently sloping inclines that pedestrians and their pets do not have trouble climbing. The neighborhood has sidewalks and grass berms throughout it which provide safe walking paths for you and your dog. Grassy berms are cooler and softer for your pup's paws than pavement and your dog will appreciate this footing, but be sure to clean up after your pooch to keep in good with your neighbors!
Some rural natural areas bordering Cornerstone Ridge have natural trails on them where you can walk your dog. The terrain is unmaintained, however, and footing varies with weather conditions so exercise caution in these areas.
