“Worth the walk or ride up”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

The bridge is a great place to view the river and Pinnacle Mountain. It's a long walk up or you can ride your bike. But the incline is very manageable. There's plenty of room to go around people and but can get crowded.

“Very neat big dam bridge!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

If you use GPS don't use the shortest route - my word! We came from the Hot Springs area and leaving the highway to get to the dam we were directed through neigborhood streets with a bunch of winding roads. Pretty houses though. My husband was disappointed when we got there that we couldn't drive on it, although I knew it was for walking or riding bikes. At the top of it you get a beautiful view of the Arkansas river and the dam is impressive. Leaving the area we discovered the direct route to the dam, much better indeed! Our dog liked the walk as well, just wish we had on clothes more condusive to a lengthy walk.

“Worth a look”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

We made an effort to drive up there before leaving but were a bit disappointed, not quite as amazing as made out but still nice to see.

“Awesome views”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

This is the world's longest pedestrian bridge over Arkansas river in Little Rock. I was there in the last summer. The experience of walking over the bridge in the afternoon was simply great. If you are a biker this is a great place for you too. The view of sunset from the bridge and the breeze is simply awesome.
