Took me a couple of moths after the bridge opened to get down to it. A gentle ramp leads you up on the Little Rock side from Murray Park. You can stop and watch boats go through the lock below, if there is river traffic. The sound of the boat horns and the lock controllers break though tthe river water rushing from the gates and the birds flying low over the water.
The flags that fly over the center portion of the bridge repesent all the entities that were involved in the establishment of the bridge. View to the west at sunset make for a great picture with Pinnacle Mountain's silhouette.
Once to the North Little Rock side the ramp is a little steeper and shorter. A pavillion and a River trails map is located at the foot of the bridge on this side. Heading west under the bridge on the north side there is a slackwater area this is good for ricer fishing if the water is not too high. Bass and catfish can be caught here. Be careful not to fall in if climbing on the rocks...watch for snakes too.
Two drawbacks...rude bike riders and puppy poops. Some bikers feels the bridge is their personal space, zooming down the inclines and coming too close to walkers. Pet owners had gotten a bit laxs on policing the messes the pooches made, but I think the threat of "NO DOGS ALLOWED" has made the majority clean up thier acts. No pun intended.
Enjoy the bridge as we enter the spring time. Hold onto you ballcaps if it is a windy day! Highly recommend!
