Who knew Little Rock had so many bridges you could walk across. How could you pass up walking across a bridge that was called the “Big Dam Bridge.” Plenty of parking. I did not see any boats in the locks, but that would be cool...More

I love riding my bike at this location because of the flat scenic view. Gorgeous trip! People walk, ride bikes, skate and jog this trail. If you are into fitness and nature, it's a must visit!

I absolutely love running across the Big Dam Bridge! The trail is typically full of other walkers and runners on weekends. I always feel very safe. The climb is intense but worth it. There are benches and lookouts at the top.
