The Arkansas River Bicycle Trail System is roughly 100 miles of bike paths stretching from downtown Little Rock in the River Market all the way out to Pinnacle Mountain. The bike trail begins in the Little Rock River Market and extends on both sides of the Arkansas River, crossing three pedestrian only bike bridges, including the magnificent Clinton Presidential Bike Bridge in the easternmost River Market district, Two Rivers Park bridge on the westernmost portion of the trail, and the World-Famous Big Dam Bridge which is the world's largest ped-only bike bridge spanning over the entire Arkansas River Dam. Bring your bike and enjoy both sides of the Arkansas River as you ride from downtown Little Rock through scenic Burns Park over the Big Dam Bridge and Two Rivers Park bridges extending all the way out to Pinnacle Mountain (Arkansas' most popular state park). Bike Rentals are provided in the downtown Little Rock River Market.Whether you walk, skate, or prefer to bicycle the miles of Riverfront beauty, you won't be disappointed. The entire Arkansas River Bike Trail system is paved and no motorized vehicles are allowed (including cars, trucks, and segways).

After traveling across the country, we wanted to take some time out and relax. The river trail is breath taking and there are many sights to see along the embankment. You can bike or take a walk.

I really enjoyed my walk from the old State House to Heifer Village, stopped off at Market Hall for lunch and ate outside by the amphitheater. It's wheelchair friendly, with plenty of access ramps, park benches and gradual hills. Great views of the wetlands and...More

Still under construction but a good effort to bring people outdoors in an urban environment near the river. Hiking biking and 2 river crossings while separated from traffic..

Walk or run this trail while you are in Little Rock. You can see beautiful old buildings, wild life, the river, cross bridges and some historical stuff too.

Yes, the trail works as a safe place to ride. People are usually very courteous. It is well maintained. The path is worth your time to get some exercise.

I walked part of this trail and must say it is beautiful. My next trip I will bring my bicycle so that I can enjoy the entire length of the trail.

Enjoyed the whole circuit of the trail. The north side is much better than the southern side even with the numerous diversions for construction..... Highly recommend if you like cycling!

What a great trail! Lots to see, well marked except for a couple of spots downtown, and it's a great length for a leisurely ride. Big Dam Bridge was definitely memorable and we saw barges, lots of bird life, turtles, and had a good time...More

Depends on where you enter the trail. Most anywhere along the river on either side (other than downtown Little Rock) the trail is easily found. If downtown LIT you can enter it at the Clinton Presidential Library. Burns Park... More
