The Arkansas River Trail System is a tribute to outdoor recreation, conservation, wellness, and the diverse geographies of Central Arkansas that creates an expansive 88-mile loop through the Natural State, including Little Rock, North Little Rock, Maumelle, and Conway. A loop from the Clinton Presidential Bridge via NLR to the Big Dam Bridge and back to the Clinton Bridge via LR is 15.6 miles.
This award-winning community effort winds its way across the entire metropolitan area, through Little Rock and North Little Rock, connecting 38 parks, six museums, and 5,000+ acres of federal, state, and local parkland. Thousands of hikers, cyclists, skaters, joggers and other outdoor recreation enthusiasts flock to the trail to explore its diversity of habitats, landscapes, and activities. Expansive and of primarily flat-terrain, the trail offers recreational opportunities for people of all ages, fitness levels, interests, and health conditions.
