This certainly was one big dam bridge. It was an extremely windy day when we went, but it was a nice walk - and the weather was pleasant. You can walk directly over the big damn and look down, which was pretty cool.

This is a very nice facility we were able to visit in March of 2017. We enjoyed walking above the dam.

Lately I have gotten into walking for fitness and I usually go around the streets of my neighborhood. Well this last Thursday I was in the mood for somewhere different so I drove over to the Big Dam Bridge about 15 miles away that spans the Arkansas River and connects Little Rock with North Little Rock, AR. The bridge was... More

Another pleasant hike. Seems to connect several trails and crosses from Little Rock to North Little Rock. Nice parks on both sides of the bridge. The adults and kids enjoyed the hike. Again, mosquito spray a must if you are hiking during the warmer months.

My favorite way to "do" the Big Dam Bridge is on my bicycle, but you can also walk/hike. There is a fairly extensive trail system associated with the Big Dam Bridge, so you can now bike (or walk) as far as you like. And it makes a loop, so you can end up back where you parked your car without... More

My husband and I went for a run here recently. We drove to the nearby parking lot and ran across the bridge and back. Very windy, but nice scenery. We went during the day on a Friday and found parking, but I would guess parking may be harder to come by on a weekend.

Been coming to this bridge since it opened. What I think is the longest elevated bike path over a dam/river in the US this is a great place to walk halfway over and sit and watch the river roil under you they the locks below. On high water it's fascinating to see the water rip they the locks. You may... More

This is an absolute gem of Little Rock and its commitment to outdoor activities. Great for walks, runs, and bike rides alike. It's a great place to check out.

I remember when this lock, dam, and walking bridge was built. We lived in North Little Rock at the time. If you are into big, impressive, marvelous man made stuff, this is for you. You can bike, walk, watch, or just be there on the river and take it all in. You really get a feeling of being small in... More
