Arkansas River Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The northern portion of the Arkansas River Trail runs along the river bank from Cook's Landing to Junction pedestrian bridge just west of I-30/US 65/167. Cross this bridge to reach the trail on the southern bank, where it extends east to the Clinton Presidential Library and west to Two Rivers Park. Portions of the southern bank segment are under construction, with temporary detours and a few on-road sections.

A bridge over the river at the northwestern end, just west of I-430 off River Mountain Road, links the trail with Two Rivers Park. From Two Rivers, there are plans to construct another 12+ miles of trail to Pinnacle Mountain State Park, connecting to the 225-mile Ouachita Wilderness Trail.

You can access the Arkansas River Trail in several places, including Cooks Landing, Burns Park's soccer complex and boat ramp, Riverview Park, North Little Rock Riverfront Park and Little Rock Riverfront Park (fee for vehicles), the Junior Deputy Baseball Complex, Rebsamen Park, Murray Park and River Mountain Park.

These words provide some of the varied venues as I cruise the river trail. The big dam bridge(alleged to be the longest pedestrian bridge in the US) gives a dramatic view of the Little Rock skyline, tugs traversing the Murray Lock and Pinnacle Mountain more
