Arkansas River Trail

BEWARE

February, 2017 by soupbird

This trail is not in a good section of town. Be sure you leave no valuables or look like you have anything of value in your car. We were there parked between a BMW and Mercedes Benz in our Buick and our back window was smashed out and they ransacked the vehicle. When the police arrived they told us this happens all the time. There are folks there that are watching to see who drives what and when they ride off. I would not recommend this area to anyone. All bikers are great people and its a shame that the city doesn't have the man power to watch it better.

Hot Springs Creek Greenway Trail

Short for Bicycling But a Fantastic Multi-Purpose Trail

November, 2016 by hickok23

At its present stage of development, the Hot Springs Greenway Trail, at just 2.25 miles [there are plans to extend it to 4.2], is relatively short for a bike ride. But then, it is a multi-purpose trail within the city limits, and as such provides a fantastic opportunity for exercise. It closely follows and frequently crosses the Hot Springs Creek. Being within the city limits, it quite a few times crosses (busy) streets, but as the crossings are well marked, that is never a problem.
What we liked ever so much besides the sculptures at the beginning of the trail and the tree-carvings at Hollywood Park, was the fact that the surface of the trail was very smooth asphalt throughout, and that it was perfectly maintained. Add to this the fact that, even on such a short trail, there were more than one restrooms and water faucets, and you get – as said before – the perfect multi-purpose urban trail. Kudos to the City of Hot Springs for providing such a trail.

Arkansas River Trail

Trail For All Seasons

October, 2016 by jacmar1

We recently visited Little Rock, Arkansas to experience the Arkansas River Trail. We like to ride the Rails to Trails conversions in particular, but had heard good things about the river trail. Our first ride began downtown at the Junction Bridge location in the Market area. Bikers can use the elevator to take them up a couple stories to the bridge connecting Little Rock with North Little Rock. Currently there are two construction sites on the north side which require a short detour until one can get on the actual trail. Completion date on the bridge and buildings should be in 6 months.

Once on the trail which runs along the Arkansas river for approximately six miles, you ride through various parks and ever changing landscapes. The surface is smooth and well maintained with frequent signage. The northside trail ends at the Big Dam Bridge which has a long manageable gradient offering spectacular views of the Arkansas River in both directions.

On our second day of riding we chose to park at Murray Park on the south side to avoid biking on the surface road which is necessary from downtown. Once at Murray Park the trail can be ridden east to Rebsamen Park and then a quick turnaround back to the west will take you past the Big Dam Bridge to the Two River Bridge. The trail from the Bridge to Maumette is spectacular.

the Arkansas River Trail, while not a Rails to Trails offers a variety of enjoyable experiences for all bikers and should be enjoyable throughout all seasons.

Little Rock has an excellent variety of restaurants and breweries. Lodging can be at several levels, but if you want a real treat, try the Empress of Little Rock. It is a trip back in time.

Arkansas River Trail

Beautiful Fall Ride

October, 2016 by JulieTye

My husband and I traveled from Nebraska to ride this trail on Sept. 30. Our hotel was in the River Market area, just blocks from the river, the trail, great food, shopping and live music. We started our ride by crossing the Clinton Bridge. The north side of the trail was fantastic! Beautiful river views, several White Herons and sunning turtles. Due to some construction there is a slight detour but this is well marked. The Big Dam Bridge is certainly a highlight with several nice amenities including the bike repair and air station. Amazing views from the top! On the south side of the trail there was too much street riding for our liking. the bike lanes were fine, but not as much of a fan of the dedicated bike routes. That being said, Little Rock motorists were very respectful of cyclists. If I were to ride this again, I would go back over the Big Dam Bridge and retrace our route on the north side. A great asset for the citizens of Little Rock!

Arkansas River Trail

Great ride early on a Sunday morning

September, 2016 by khrysinwythe

My wife and i started at Two Rivers Park and rode the entire loop. We started early to avoid the heat on Sept. 25th. I would not ride the entire loop other than Sunday because the street traffic could be a problem, especially downtown. There could have been a few more directional signs down town.
The area around the Big Dam Bridge was very busy. We both were astonished in the BDB and the expense someone went to for bikers and pedestrains to cross the river there at the dam. We love the trail. My wife usually only rides about 12 miles but she enjoyed it so much, she couldn't stop and turn around - plus she wanted to cross the Clinton bridge downtown.

Weekly Inline Speed Skating 20+ Miles

July, 2016 by jester5203

This trail offers many obstacles from climbing the Big Dam Bridge to following the open roads in a few locations. There is little to no timely cleaning of the trail that leads to lots of spotty areas to dodge carefully. The changes in scenery are pretty grand though the pavement needs some TLC nearing the Clinton Library. Hopefully the trail will keep from flooding as the summer progresses. Not many places in the state that offer the distance of this measure.

Arkansas River Trail

My Home Trail

May, 2016 by weaverdennisl

This is a great trail! It is not under water or blocked in any way, is is well maintained. I ride on both sides of the river and have found many ways to change this trail up so as not get boring as I try to ride on it everyday on the way home after work and on the weekends. It is really the only safe way to ride in central Arkansas, meaning no cars. If you are in the area on a trip, try this trail, you will like it.

Tucker Creek Trail

Great for a very short trail

May, 2016 by acannefax

I rode this trail today, 5/29/2016. The map shows it to be 2.3 miles long, but it actually goes on about another mile if you cross some busy streets. I didn't want to continually cross the streets, so I just rode a 1.4 mile section starting from Hogan street, near the western edge. I rode about 40 miles, so I got to know the trail well! Lots of runners, families, etc. but all were good about moving if you let them know you were on their left. I was happy to have this trail near the Toad Suck Park.

Hot Springs Creek Greenway Trail

Short but nice.

February, 2016 by memphisfred

Nice trail, weather was uncommonly warm so there were a lot of people out. First off there are more water stops than was listed, we saw 3 but they were turned off understandably to keep them from freezing as it was January. True there is only one restroom facility but how many do you need in such a short trail.

I would make it closer to 2.5 miles as it doesn't stop at Adams but turns left and goes back and runs along the creek behind the waste treatment before coming back up to where Seneca becomes Adams.

There is a crossing button Southbound when crossing Grand St. but I failed to see one coming back from the other direction. Just be careful here as it's a 4 lane crossing.

River Trail update

July, 2015 by walleye junior

As of July 8th the trail loop is NOW open, although one section is still under water. There is a detour that still gives a beautiful ride and adds about a half a mile to the loop. There are detours as you get to downtown NLR and LR due to the demolition and construction of a new bridge. None the less bikers can enjoy all the sites and aromas along the trail. I recently passed several deer feeding about 20 ft off the paved trail. They gave me a bored look as I passed. But it is always wise to be on the lookout for a deer bolting across the path as there are long stretches where the undergrowth is right up to the pavement. I have seen deer sprint across the trail 30 to 40 feet in front of me. One other caution. There are several flocks of geese that bed down along the trail. Beware of goose grease! And when biking at a pretty fast clip the geese do NOT move even though you bike within 2 feet of them. They think they own the road.

Arkansas River Trail

Trail Conditions Make Loop Ride Impossible. Check before you Come.

June, 2015 by libsch

At present (6/8/2015) there is no access to the Big Dam Bridge. Access on the N side of this bridge is under water. Riding a loop is literally impossible.

Riding east to west along the N side of the river, no notice of the closure of the Big Dam Bridge is given, nor is an alternative route offered.

On the S side of the river, riding from east to west a construction-related detour takes the rider through heavy downtown traffic with the added hazard of
trolly tracks. Not at all the experience sought by rail trail users.
