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).

This is a lovely trail with lots of native plantings. Spring is beautiful with all the blooms. Easy access and fine for those who may be challenged in walking.

First time on the trail, took off from Clinton Pedestrian Bridge through downtown but with detours. We probably should have looked at a map before we started because we weren't sure how far the trail went or if it did a loop. Kept going until...More

When I still lived in the area, I absolutely LOVED biking the river trail system! And they've made some improvements since then :) It is especially nice to time your bike ride (or hike) so you can catch the sunrise on the Big Dam Bridge....More
