Tucker Creek Trail Description

Sometimes known as the Kinley Bike Trail, the Tucker Creek Trail offers a pleasant, well-lit and paved route through residential neighborhoods in western Conway. It follows its namesake creek through a largely tree-lined area. Its western terminus ends at a large shopping complex, so the trail serves as a transportation corridor in addition to a purely recreational escape.

The trail was extended to cross busy College Avenue, continuing north around the outskirts of the University of Central Arkansas campus, coming to an end at Tyler Street and the charming neighborhood site of Gatlin Park. All told, the trail offers over three miles of paved pathway for residents to get some exercise or navigate the community by foot or bike.

Parking and Trail Access

Public parking is available off Salem Road a few blocks south of College Avenue; from the lot, take the pedestrian bridge over the creek to reach the trail.

Additional parking is available at the northern end of the trail, at Gatlin Park at the end of Broadview Avenue, or just off of Tyler Street east of Brierwood Circle.

Bikeshare stations are also located at several points along the trail, including at the Salem Road and Tyler Street trailheads.

Tucker Creek Trail Reviews

Changes to Tucker Creek Trail

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.

Nice Trail

Ran here on a cool October morning.Trail relatively flat,in good shape, and uncrowded.Negative factors are you have to cross at least two very,very,busy roads.

Great for a very short trail

I rode this trail today, 5/29/2016. The map shows it to be 2.3 miles long, but it actually goes on about another mile if you cross some busy streets. I didn't want to continually cross the streets, so I just rode a 1.4 mile section starting from Hogan street, near the western edge. I rode about 40 miles, so I got to know the trail well! Lots of runners, families, etc. but all were good about moving if you let them know you were on their left. I was happy to have this trail near the Toad Suck Park.
