Well paved path with lights for night walking, running or biking.
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.
Great trail in Conway, AR. Since previous reviews, the trail has had significant improvements. Total trail distance is about 13-14 miles, running from the Tyler street to Hogan street. You do have to cross College and Salem street, but new cross-walks with motion-activated lighting has been installed, and most motorists are bicycle and pedestrian friendly. If you are willing to add in some streets which are marked for cycling (i.e., painted bicycle lanes and/or shared roads) you can easily ride 20-30 miles all within city limits. Conway is recognized as a bicycle friendly community. TCT is great for cycling, running, walking, skate boarding, inline skating.
Very pretty- clearly marked trails!
The trail surface is very smooth right now - we rode from Barton to Lakeview (20 miles round trip) on gravel/cross bikes with our children. The gravel is small and well groomed, and most road bike riders would not have problems with it; it is definitely suitable for hybrids. The visitors center is easy to find, has ample parking, and has clean bathrooms. Almost all road crossings are over low traffic minor dirt roads or driveways, so we did not have to stop for traffic while riding. The trail is shaded, in parts by very large, old trees. The state parks have secured a large matching grant from the Walton Foundation and will have all 84 miles complete within five years. Nearby Mississippi River State Park has a lovely RV campground and more roads to explore by bike.
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.
It’s very rare to find a Rails-to-Trails project this nice in a small town like Walnut Ridge/Hoxie. It’s completely paved, with a couple of small bridges and a great spectrum of scenery — rural fields, forest and neighborhoods. WELL WORTH the ride!
Awesome trail, I especially like the new parking lot. It’s very flat, only about 20% shade.
We ride the pavement which was in perfect shape and not overly crowded. But the paths on both sides of the trail were calling to us. Would be a great place to learn to mountain bike and also has access to a wide variety of trails.
I like this trail a lot. It was fun and easy to do with my kids.
We "put in" at the Helena Junction trailhead and had to turn around at Barton - only 2 miles into our ride. When we read that the trail was crushed rock and that it was in excellent condition we thought that we'd see a Katy Trail type of surface ("The Katy" is one of our faves).
Such is not the case. The crushed limestone that we encountered was #57 or #5. We expected #8.
It was a bummer that we had to abort our ride, especially after having driven for two hours to get there. It was a beautiful day, and the trail scenery is spectacular.
Just do not attempt this unless you are prepared for a trail bike experience.
My wife and I rode this trail a week ago - started in Watson and finished in the very sleep town of Arkansas City. First 9 miles were shaded with trees on both sides. Trail of crushed limestone in excellent shape. Final 14 miles were paved road along the top of the Mississippi river levee. Amazing views from top of the levee. You can see for miles across forests, lakes, and fields of soybeans and corn. Town of Arkansas City is a shadow of its former heyday before the 1927 floods. Lots of history there. Will do this ride again.
