A great view of the Arkansas River over the dam. Would be really cool to watch a barge going through the lock.

Its so much water. The bridge is amazing. There are so many green trees. There are lots of bicycles and people walking on the bridge. The houses are huge that are in the hills across from the bridge. Thank you from Rita Bennett and Steve Nordstrom from Westminster Colorado

We love walking the big damn bridge. The views are absolutely gorgeous and never the same, they have benches at the middle of the bridge so you can take in the view!

This is one of my favorite places to go walking. The river view is nice and the bridge is also. A great place for adults and children.

The Big Dam Bridge is part of the larger Arkansas River Trail system. It's great for running and has some decent views of the surrounding area. You can park on either side of the dam jus make sure to lock your car and hide your purse/wallet/valuables.

We were there right when the big spring rains were washing down the Arkansas River. Watching how wide the river was and how that water was moving along was amazing! The overhead walk ramp gives you a great view of the area. Great place to get some exercise. Wear your walking shoes.

This pedestrian bridge is built on top of and into the hydro dam. A bit of a hike (7 stories tall) up to the top but the view of the river and the hydro plant was worth the effort. Very clean area with designated bike and pedestrian lanes. Part of the city park system. od

The river trail has miles of paved walkways and biking lanes that are great for exercising or just enjoying the great weather and views of Pinnacle Mountain
