It is approximately 7 miles west of downtown, parking is right there and you walk up and over a really cool dam. We saw... More

Great workout. Fun outing. Walk, run, bike and you can take your dog too. Took my small nephew and he loved it. We love to bring our bikes and ride. Fun to watch the boats go through the dam.

Great views, clean, and a good work-out! Just watch out for bikes but people are friendly and several bring animals.

You can either walk, jog, or ride a bike on this tour. It is exactly what it is called.. A Big Dam Bridge. The view is wonderful at night. I walked it one night with my husband, and one night with my family.

Amazing bridge built for walkers and bikers. In beautiful weather it would be great to walk across to north side.

This bridge is great on so many levels. While some will not favor who paid for it, the costs are outweighed many fold by what it has added to those of us that live here and visitors

Great way to get exercise and see the river! Start on the North Little Rock side for quicker access. Not necessarily something worth going out of your way for but if you are in Little Rock and looking for a outdoor activity, this is fun.

I've been here many times. The bridge goes across the Arkansas River and has plenty neat thing to watch. There's a small hydro plant on one side, a lock for ships to go through on the other. Bring your bike and you can trek for miles along the river.

I guess if you had a bicycle or were going on a picnic in the park, this would be a fun place to spend some time. It's really as its name suggests: a big dam bridge.

While getting the advantage of a great physical workout either walking, jogging, biking, etc., this walk also provides picturesque views , a great outlet for family fun and bonding or a wonderful spot to walk your dog. This path also connects to other bridges and paths so you can make it a short trip over and back or add any... More
