Wonderful ride, we have ridden the entire trail and love this ride. Well marked, easy ride with amazing scenery.
Lots of visual interest downtown with monuments and statues. A little hard to keep on trail as there was a lot of construction and detours. Only managed a couple of miles before hitting a dead end. I’d definitely return at a later date for a longer run hopefully on a less interrupted trail.
I am so happy I drove up here from Louisiana to ride this trail. Really beautiful. I parked at the Clinton Library parking lot then rode downtown (be aware this is challenging due to all the construction so parts of the trail on the Little Rock side are closed). Also rode through Heifer Village and the Clinton library grounds. My recommendation is to go across the Clinton bridge then ride all the way down to the Big Dam bridge on the North Little Rock side & cross there. From the bridge you can go left to Murray Park or right to Twin Rivers Park Bridge. I just turned around and came back the way I had already rode. A local had advised me that traffic on the Little Rock side especially near the Dillards corporate headquarters was brutal. On the North Little Rock you’re rarely sharing the road and even then traffic was very light.
Very nice, flat, shaded trail. Not very long but an easy ride.
Rode the trail on the North Little Rock side of the trail this morning. Started near the golf course clubhouse and rode to the Clinton Library. First mile was great. Then construction and detours the rest of the way.
Such an awe inspiring ride alongside the Arkansas River and through the river market area of downtown Little Rock. Basically flat with the steepest inclines found accessing the river bridge crossings. Bike repair stations, restrooms and even outdoor gyms spaced along trail at appropriate intervals. It IS alongside one of our countries major rivers so occasional flooding does occur on the North side of the trail at some points that are within feet of the river. The trail is well maintained and the only negative is where Dillards corporation refuses to allow the trail to cross their property. They are the only corp holdouts and unfortunately this means that a short portion of the 17 mile loop occurs on streets adding some unnecessary danger to the otherwise fantastic trail!
Visiting from Southern California, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this trail, but I have to say it exceeded whatever preconceived modest expectations I had!
We started at the Big Dam Bridge parking lot and proceeded to ride over the bridge and back. It was awesome! Even if we didn't ride anywhere else that afternoon, that experience and the spectacular views made the trip to Arkansas River Trail worth it!
But we didn't stop there. We then rode upriver to another pedestrian bridge, Two Rivers Park Bridge, and crossed it to explore the heavily wooded and picturesque trails. What a pleasure that ride was!
Since we wanted to stay out of urban areas, we only experienced a small portion of the trail. It seemed extremely popular and was being heavily used on a beautiful weekday afternoon, and I must add that these two out of state senior citizens felt comfortable and safe at all times on this magnificent trail system.
Two thumbs up, Little Rock! With the heavy use of this trail it's obvious the residents of your city know what a gem of a trail they have. For those of you wondering whether it's worth the drive to Little Rock, Heck Yeah!
It’s short and that is the only negative about this trail. I rode my wife’s beach cruiser and we loved it. As fun a ride as we have had from Virginia to Florida to Louisiana to Texas. Next up Little Rock.
Enjoyed every minute of it
Started downtown on trail and it was closed on both ends. Tried to cross junction bridge which is a drawbridge in upright position. Took elevator up and went across. Elevator at other end broken so I couldn’t get across. We should have parked on side with Clinton library.
parked downtown at Riverfront park and ended up at Two Rivers park. 24 miles round trip. all paved but some short areas are on 2 lane (not very busy) roads. several bike friendly bridges to traverse but otherwise flat, wide trails. lots of pedestrians, joggers and bikers but it was a sunday. very "brown" when we rode, probably much more scenic in late spring, early summer.
I am on a X-C road trip on I 40, and stopped today to get some exercise skating the trail. I parked at Big Dam Bridge (on the South side of the river). I skated across the river there, and put in 90 minutes on the trails on that side. Returning to the South side I explored around another 30 minutes. I was on miles of very good paved surface. I only saw one short (40 feet) segment with root cracks; these were clearly visible as one approached them. My understanding is there are many more miles of trail I didn't get a chance to skate.
The only long steep portions I found were the approaches to the Big Dam Bridge.
All-in-all a great skating site with wide, smooth, pavement.
