Take a walk, jog, or bike ride across Big Dam Bridge, which spans the Arkansas River and connects a long network of scenic riverside trails. North America's longest pedestrian/bicycle bridge, the structure rises almost 30 m (90 ft) over the river and boasts a total length of 1,288 m (4,226 ft). You'll find eight observation areas along the bridge that offer panoramic views of the river and the nearby trails and parks. At night, the attraction showcases a rainbow of colored lights; in fact, the bridge incorporates award-winning lighting design. Check online for upcoming special events like full moon walks and bicycle races.

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.
