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.

Razorback Regional Greenway

Interesting trail for a run

August, 2022 by claire.louisa.knowles

Not as clean and well kept as other trails. There’s a lot of trash left by those overnighting near trails. However, good safe crossings and interesting to weave through Fayetteville. I started at finished at Walker Park, which has a children’s splash park-an added cooling bonus on a hot day!

3rd Day Good!

July, 2022 by lallien2003_tl

I started at Horsebarn trailhead 7/14/2022 headed toward Fayetteville. Beautiful ride! This is what I wanted to do the last 2 days from Bella Vista and Bentonville but could not due to construction. Signage was great! I had to detour in Springdale but the detour signs were spot on and I was back on the trail soon. The scenery was nice. I recommend riding from Horsebarn trailhead.

Razorback Regional Greenway

Trail Closures. Poor signage.

July, 2022 by lallien2003_tl

I drove 5.5 hours mid July 2022 with the goal of riding the trail. I reserved lodging at the trail which should have allowed me to ride as far as I wanted to go. Day 1 trail closure was thanks to the Bella Vista Bypass Project with projected completion fall 2021. Day 1 second attempt was stopped by another trail closure to expand the Crystal Bridges Museum. Day 2 attempt was toward Fayetteville from Bentonville only to ride about 2 miles & see a small sign saying “detour” with an arrow. I went the direction the arrow pointed to arrive at a busy intersection with no signage. Asking locals resulted in confused looks and no help. This was disappointing at best & extremely maddening. I’m not sure why trail organizers do not care enough to at least put adequate signage for detours.

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.

Big Spring Nature Trail

Shaded and Short

June, 2022 by 9488cyjtp7

Took our bikes on this trail early In the morning. We are staying at the campground right next to the trail. Nice ride in the shade before the 100 degree temps. The city part, boat launch and riverfront were very nice. Closer to 2 miles each way. It was perfect for us today.

Dogwood Springs Walking Trail

It was a hot and humid day, but this shady trail along the water provided us with a nice setting for a relaxed ride. The town and university take good care of the area facilitates.

Arkansas River Trail

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!

Hot Springs Creek Greenway Trail

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.
