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!

what a beautiful trail

April, 2022 by garyandlorrie412

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.

Arkansas river trail closures

June, 2021 by matthewhicks001

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.

Arkansas River Trail

nice ride

March, 2021 by alexmimholz

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.

Arkansas River Trail

In-line skating the trail

September, 2020 by rmaron

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.

Arkansas River Trail

Unbelievable trail experience!

July, 2020 by echoellis

My wife and I drove 5 hours to ride this trail for 3 days. All I can say is incredible! Beautifully maintained paved trail system. Huge variety of landscape from downtown Little Rock to mountains and swamps. Tons of people enjoying trail. A real blessing! Thank you to the people of Arkansas and RTR!

Arkansas River Trail

Amazing trail

March, 2020 by securitytech78

Being from El Dorado, AR, where there is nowhere to safely bike and run, I am extremely grateful for the 2 rivers trail. Sadly I have to drive 2 hours to enjoy it but well worth it every time. This area alone is one reason I plan on leaving south arkansas the first chance I get. I appreciate the effort and hard work it has taken to build an area so beautiful. If I had any suggestions at all I would advice hiring a part time security bicyclist to be in the area from time to time. I think this may cut down on some of the breaking or enterings. I mean we see it as crime but criminals see it at opportunity. Guess if I was a criminal and never saw law enforcement present on the trails, I would for sure take advantage. But hey, there is crime everywhere and I would rather my vehicle be broken into while out enjoying the sunshine and beautiful scenery, vs sitting in the house and your vehicle get broken into any way. I give an A for the trail overall and would recommend it to anyone.

Arkansas River Trail

Good trail with some scenery

March, 2020 by oneluckybirdie

This is my home trail. Park at the Big Dam Bridge during daylight hours and you shouldn't have any problem with crime due to lots of people being around. It is also safe to park in the River Market downtown and rent a bike. Technically; it is about a 15 mile loop if you make a circle from the Big Dam Bridge to downtown on both sides of the river. I would only suggest this route EARLY on a Saturday or Sunday morning for newbies due to some safety/route/traffic issues on the Little Rock side along Cantrell Road and Dillard's headquarters. The two best routes 7 days/week: A: out and back from the Big Dam Bridge to Downtown on the North Little Rock side(14 miles roundtrip). B: out and back from the Big Dam Bridge to Two Rivers Park on the Little Rock side(10 miles roundtrip). Both routes are good. Two Rivers Park can be very crowded on a nice weekend morning. Be sure to take the long loop at Two Rivers park which goes along the Little Maumelle River. Overall the trail would be considered relatively flat. Nice scenery of the Arkansas river at several spots. The A & B routes are uninterrupted by cars except for a 0.3 mile shared street in North Little Rock which has very low traffic. Bathrooms are at the Big Dam Bridge on the Little Rock side, Two Rivers Park and Downtown North Little Rock. If time allows for a bonus; drive up the hill to Emerald Park in North Little Rock and ride the paved 2-3 mile trail along the ridge for a nice aerial view of downtown and the river. The Arkansas River Trail is as good as anything I've personally ridden in Florida, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska.

Hot Springs Homeless Trail

October, 2019 by tnsc.1995

First let me say the City of Hot Springs has done a beautiful job with this trail. It is paved, well maintained the sculptures are beautiful, the crossings well marked. The only down side for me was the number if homeless that seem to have made this thier own. From using the bushes as a bathroom to bathing in the brook and off course the one guy ranting to himself about something only he fully understood. That's packing a lot of human drama into a short ride. Maybe we experienced an unusual day or maybe being from a less urban area we are more sensitive. On a brighter note they were all harmless.
