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

For a lovely spot to stop and pause, take in the scenery...walk or bike across the Big Dam Bridge. An easy feat both ways, for all ages and pet friendly!

The Big Dam Bridge is one of the best destinations in the metro area. The trail on the north side is scenic and shady. It's also less than a mile to Two Rivers Park if you take the trail on the south side upriver.

Number 1 it's free. That takes value off the table. Watch for fast bikes. The bridge was built for bikes. The incline is around 5 per cent. Incredible view. Don't plan on coming in Oct. Without checking the calendar for when the bike ride will take place. As many as 10,000. If u own a bike plan on doing the... More

There is parking both on the Little Rock and Morth Little Rock sides, and bathrooms on both ends. The NLR side also has a hut to fix your bike and get a drink of water. It is absolutely beautiful, and a great place to walk, run or bike. You can do all three over the bridge. The NLR side has... More

I'm a bridge fanatic. I think it is a fantastic addition to our city. The view from the bridge is always awesome, and there are always tons of people walking and riding bikes. The county does a very good job of keeping it clean. One caveat - on a really pretty day, be careful riding your bike too fast. Dogs... More

I use this bridge often as it is one of several bridges on the Arkansas River Trail system where I ride my bicycle. The trail system and their bridges (total of six planned, I believe) connects the towns of Little Rock and North Little Rock. The vast majority of the trail is paved (this whole section is concrete) so easily... More

I have loved walking across the Big Damn Bridge alone, with my dog, with friends and with out of town guests. Great views, diverse groups, a moderate hike--all in all a favorite destination. Give it a try.
