Fantastic for biking, running or walking. Miles of paved trail ranging from easy to challenging. Accessible to downtown Little Rock for a coffee or beer or both break.

There is a nice place to watch the valley just around the Samm bridge, but there is nothing really interesting with the bridge and the Samm as it is. I do not recommend to go to the bridge, but to go to the places down the Samm with some great views.

I walked the bridge. It was nice and wide enough for everyone. It had Benches to sit on in various spots.

We have been going to BDB since it first opened and it continues to draw us back. From the top of the bridge you can see East or West along the Arkansas river for several miles, and these views are spectacular from sunrise to sunset. At night you can see the colored lights on the bridge fade in and out.... More

A very pretty easy walk with a 3 and 6 year old grandchildren. Great views and was glad to see the benches along the way to sit for old backs.

Once the kids heard the name, they had to go! Beautiful park, with nice walking/riding paths. I felt the bike rental place was too far for the kids to ride from, so we just walked around the park and on the bridge, but I think the bike ride would have been much more fun!

The mountains view from the bridge was awesome. The weather conditions this past weekend was just right. There are various pathways to walk through the park that I found was perfect for our romantic date. There transition from the Sunset to the Moonrise the bridge was awesome platform. I will be back to visit..

Nice stroll across this pedestrian/bicycle bridge. Long incline to a great view. Worth the walk. Don't leave valuables exposed in you car. Enjoy!! Good must do attraction in Little Rock/North Little Rock(NLR). NLR side has a paved path 8 miles to downtown Little Rock/NLR.

The bridge is a hub of activity for all ages and all types of outdoor enthusiasts. My family and I ride recumbent trikes there weekly and enjoy nature and each other's company. Easily accessible and fun for all!
