Running, walking or cycling along the Arkansas riverfront provides a vast assortment of picturesque backdrops and unique scenes. For those strolling the downtown Little Rock riverfront, tall cottonwoods line both sides of the river. Choosing a path behind the Old Statehouse provides a glimpse into Arkansas history.
Traversing the length of the Arkansas riverfront, visitors can spot river barges, fishing boats, and often, the Mark Twain Riverboat chugging along and the Arkansas Rowing Club hard at work. Heading west, the terrain begins to change, and the famous Big Rock and surrounding bluffs come into view. Boat launches also line the banks of the Arkansas riverfront, for those looking to set sail on an adventure of their own.
