  • Made a stop here to walk the bridge and the walking path. Very nice walk and a great path for running or biking too.  more »
  • The bridge is impressive with a wide view of the river and surrounding areas. The incline is gradual so it should be accessible to most visitors  more »

  • Absolutely stunning views. Nice trek across the bridge. We went around sunset and could see both the sun set and the moon rise on the opposite side of the bridge. Very cool experience. Must see!!
  • Recently, took my wife on a trip for her birthday and we chose Little Rock. One of the cool spots in town is the big dam bridge. It is a large open to the public jogging path that connects two parks and goes across the dam. They also light it up at night and it is really cool to take pictures of. The parking is free and it is a little bit out of the way, but it is not that difficult to get to. However it is worth checking out and visiting.
