Bicycled the Arkansas River Trail, including Big Dam Bridge for the first time. Local governments did this one right—well designed, constructed, and maintained, clean, and used by many. It was indeed a pleasure to enjoy.

Did the BDB race. Would love to come back and just bike and take time enjoy the views. Great bridge for walkers and bikers.

When I first moved to Little Rock and found out about the Big Dam Bridge, I shook my head and laughed at the name like everyone else. Once I visited it, I fell in love with it like everyone else as well. The view is great from any spot on the bridge. The park at the bottom of either side... More

The walk/bicycle bridge that was built around this dam is amazing, it afforded a great view of not only the dam but the river and hills surrounding it. This would be a great place for all ages although the walk is on an incline.

Unfortunately it started raining on our drive over to this dam so we could not get out to walk across the bridge.

Good for romance. Good for rides, walks, and runs. Long walk across if you're not in shape. Beautiful place. One of those places you should be.

One of my favorite places in Little Rock, The Big Dam Bridge is the longest pedestrian only bridge in the United States. It is lit up at night and a treat to see if you are nearby at dark. We ride our bicycles over the bridge multiple times weekly, headed to one of our local breweries for a beverage or... More

Science, nature and engineering masterpiece. We spend hours there. Connections to nature hiking trails are a wonderland of deer and crinoid rings.
