  • Good place for a jog. Strangely enough the world's longest bridge built just for pedestrians which seems crazy, but cool I guess. The views are pretty good too and you can track down some animals with the free telescopes.
  • Really nice place for a walk. Have yet to see any crazies here. Everyone one respectful except for the occasional speeder in parking area. ¡¡¡SLOW DOWN!!!😦☠
  • Excellent for a nice walking workout. Beautiful scenery with nice trails on either side of the bridge.
  • Spectacular! A little less elevation climb than i am accustomed to but this place is nice! At night there are varying lights that illuminate at night. They have had issues with car vandalism in the past but hey it's Little Rock right?
  • Worth the time to see. Really nice bridge (largest walking and biking bridge)
