Sulphur Creek Trail

My wife and I rode a few miles in November 2023 and enjoyed the lush fall foliage. The trail itself is paved with some elevation - nothing very intense. Lots of places to stop and rest or take in the beautiful scenery.

Hazen Trail (Railroad Prairie Natural Area)

Short & Sweet

August, 2023 by dstu32

Trail had some cracks and stones. It didn’t make in-line skating too difficult, just had to be cautious. Scenery was nice and trail was short. My dogs loved it. Would be a great trail for kids

Arkansas River Trail

Arkansas River Trail

Burns Park access closed due to storm damage

April, 2023 by normrtt

We parked at Julius Breckling Riverfront Park ($3/hr) and crossed the Arkansas River to the north side at Gateway Bridge, and proceeded north-west until Burns Park, where access was blocked due to the recent tornado damage. The security guard informed us that this will be a long term closure. We turned around and crossed back to the south side of the river at the Clinton Presidential Park Bridge. Note that the Clinton Library has parking.
There is much highway construction downtown making route finding challenging at times.
We had hoped to get to the Big Dam Bridge, but even with the truncated ride, it was very scenic and pleasant.

Beautiful Trail

Wonderful ride, we have ridden the entire trail and love this ride. Well marked, easy ride with amazing scenery.

Arkansas River Trail

very interesting trail along the river

August, 2022 by claire.louisa.knowles

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.

Arkansas River Trail

Beautiful trail well worth the visit

June, 2022 by classcchaos

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.

Levy Spur Trail

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.

Arkansas River Trail

Beautiful Trail used by 100’s of people daily!

May, 2022 by rdgzgnv5w8

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!

Arkansas River Trail

TWO THUMBS UP, LITTLE ROCK!

April, 2022 by thejake91739

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!
