Big Dam Bridge - Arkansas River Trail


  Last week when we were in Little Rock we walked/rolled along a couple of nice sections of the Arkansas River Trail that traveled along the edge of the downtown. This section is about seven miles north of the city with total different scenery of forest and parkland. The bridge which spans the river at the dam is the longest bridge in North America that was built specifically for foot and bike traffic. The deck of the bridge is a good place to view the boats and barges going through the locks.

  The trail is wide and smooth. Most wheelchair users will need assistance to gain access to the bridge because the ramp is very long. The trail is on both sides of the river so accessing the bridge isn’t necessary.


  Small RVs will fit in the lot if backed up over the grass. Larger RVs can be parked along the north side of the road. Trail  34.78881, -92.35412
