Razorback Regional Greenway

Well done NWA

April, 2017 by schinnerer

I am fairly new to biking, but this is one of the most amazing trail systems I have ever seen. I have only ridden the northern half so far, and have enjoyed it every time I've gone out. Don't stop branching out. I live in Cave Springs and would love to see a trailhead closer to me where I can jump on. There are some signage issues that need to be dealt with. Especially around the New Hope area. Thanks again for providing an excellent trail.

Big River Crossing

Great Views of the Big River

March, 2017 by rmheeth

The Big River Crossing is a unique trail. Relatively short (about a mile long), it is a walk/bike trail build on an old bridge over the Mississippi River. I started at the west end in Arkansas where there is a dirt parking lot at the end of the paved road (Dacus Lake Rd.). From the parking lot the trail loops around going up and under the railroad bridge before making a turn to go across the river. The western side is a moderate but steady climb to the top at the middle of the river where it levels out before becoming a very slight drop to the other side in Memphis. At the top, you are just beside the railroad bridge, although separated by a heavy steel grating. The trail surface is perforated steel plating which I would think might be slippery when wet. Also, being high up over the river, you are exposed to the wind.

The day I went, there were barges lined up going up the river as far as the eye could see.

The Big River Crossing is a unique trail with incredible views of Memphis, the river and the Arkansas countryside. I will definitely visit this trail again on my next trip to Memphis.

Arkansas River Trail

BEWARE

February, 2017 by soupbird

This trail is not in a good section of town. Be sure you leave no valuables or look like you have anything of value in your car. We were there parked between a BMW and Mercedes Benz in our Buick and our back window was smashed out and they ransacked the vehicle. When the police arrived they told us this happens all the time. There are folks there that are watching to see who drives what and when they ride off. I would not recommend this area to anyone. All bikers are great people and its a shame that the city doesn't have the man power to watch it better.

Razorback Regional Greenway

Extensive, picturesque trail; however...

January, 2017 by trikesterhal

I live in Springdale and ride four miles from home through city streets to downtown where I catch the Greenway.

At the moment the trail is blocked in two places going north. Signs say the trail is closed at Pleasant Grove Road, but I continued on all the way until where it crosses under I-49. It's blocked there and will be for several months because they are widening I-49 and building the trestles under the highway.

There is a detour shown from Pleasant Grove up over and around I-49 but I'm told it's on city streets and bit hazardous. And up near Bella Vista in the north its closed by more highway construction for the new bypass.

It's called progress and when it opens again it will be possible to traverse then entire path from north to south. It is a fun and picturesque ride. In some fifteen months I've ridden some 3,000+ miles on this system on a recumbent trike. It's a lot of fun.

More and more trails are connecting to the system in the coming years. You just need to be patient. It's only going to get better and better.

Hot Springs Creek Greenway Trail

Short for Bicycling But a Fantastic Multi-Purpose Trail

November, 2016 by hickok23

At its present stage of development, the Hot Springs Greenway Trail, at just 2.25 miles [there are plans to extend it to 4.2], is relatively short for a bike ride. But then, it is a multi-purpose trail within the city limits, and as such provides a fantastic opportunity for exercise. It closely follows and frequently crosses the Hot Springs Creek. Being within the city limits, it quite a few times crosses (busy) streets, but as the crossings are well marked, that is never a problem.
What we liked ever so much besides the sculptures at the beginning of the trail and the tree-carvings at Hollywood Park, was the fact that the surface of the trail was very smooth asphalt throughout, and that it was perfectly maintained. Add to this the fact that, even on such a short trail, there were more than one restrooms and water faucets, and you get – as said before – the perfect multi-purpose urban trail. Kudos to the City of Hot Springs for providing such a trail.

Arkansas River Trail

Trail For All Seasons

October, 2016 by jacmar1

We recently visited Little Rock, Arkansas to experience the Arkansas River Trail. We like to ride the Rails to Trails conversions in particular, but had heard good things about the river trail. Our first ride began downtown at the Junction Bridge location in the Market area. Bikers can use the elevator to take them up a couple stories to the bridge connecting Little Rock with North Little Rock. Currently there are two construction sites on the north side which require a short detour until one can get on the actual trail. Completion date on the bridge and buildings should be in 6 months.

Once on the trail which runs along the Arkansas river for approximately six miles, you ride through various parks and ever changing landscapes. The surface is smooth and well maintained with frequent signage. The northside trail ends at the Big Dam Bridge which has a long manageable gradient offering spectacular views of the Arkansas River in both directions.

On our second day of riding we chose to park at Murray Park on the south side to avoid biking on the surface road which is necessary from downtown. Once at Murray Park the trail can be ridden east to Rebsamen Park and then a quick turnaround back to the west will take you past the Big Dam Bridge to the Two River Bridge. The trail from the Bridge to Maumette is spectacular.

the Arkansas River Trail, while not a Rails to Trails offers a variety of enjoyable experiences for all bikers and should be enjoyable throughout all seasons.

Little Rock has an excellent variety of restaurants and breweries. Lodging can be at several levels, but if you want a real treat, try the Empress of Little Rock. It is a trip back in time.

Arkansas River Trail

Beautiful Fall Ride

October, 2016 by JulieTye

My husband and I traveled from Nebraska to ride this trail on Sept. 30. Our hotel was in the River Market area, just blocks from the river, the trail, great food, shopping and live music. We started our ride by crossing the Clinton Bridge. The north side of the trail was fantastic! Beautiful river views, several White Herons and sunning turtles. Due to some construction there is a slight detour but this is well marked. The Big Dam Bridge is certainly a highlight with several nice amenities including the bike repair and air station. Amazing views from the top! On the south side of the trail there was too much street riding for our liking. the bike lanes were fine, but not as much of a fan of the dedicated bike routes. That being said, Little Rock motorists were very respectful of cyclists. If I were to ride this again, I would go back over the Big Dam Bridge and retrace our route on the north side. A great asset for the citizens of Little Rock!
