“A paved multi-use trail that makes a scenic loop of the Arkansas River.”
— Cliff Li
The Arkansas River Trail is a paved, scenic, multi-use trail used by cyclists, runners, and walkers that makes a 16-mile loop of the Arkansas River through Little Rock and North Little Rock. It utilizes the Big Dam Bridge and the Clinton Bridge. Spur trails lead off to Two Rivers Park, Burns Park, and many of the local mountain bike trails can be accessed from the Arkansas River Trail.
The pedestrian bridges can be congested so be courteous, use care, and ride at low speeds through these areas.
The River Trail has many access points, notably Cook's Landing, Burns Park Soccer Complex, Dog Park, Golf Course, and Boat Ramp, and Riverfront Park in North Little Rock, and the Clinton Presidential Library, River Market, Murray Park, and the Murray Park Lock & Dam on the Little Rock side.
There are bike fix-it stations at the Two Rivers Bridge, Pfiefer Pavilion at the base of the Big Dam Bridge on the North Little Rock side, and next to the restrooms at Burns Park at the parking lot of White Oak Bayou.
