The Big Dam Bridge is the longest bridge in America that has been used only by pedestrians or by bicycle riders. Vehicular traffic is strictly prohibited on the bridge. Beneath the bridge is the Murray Lock and Dam built on the Arkansas river. The Big Dam Bridge is one of the best places in Little Rock to watch the river flowing by. There are plenty of nature trails on both sides of the river near the bridge. Do not forget to check out the numerous parks in the vicinity. Some of these like the Paws Park and the one near Burns Park allow dogs to roam without a leash. From the bridge, you can see views of the Pinnacle Mountain, Two Rivers Park and the Emerald Park. You can either visit the bridge on a morning hike or check out its splendour in the evening lights.

Big Dam Bridge Reviews & Ratings
My favorite place for outdoor fun or a nice run. It is a central point of the Arkansas River Trail. The east view at sunrise over the Arkansas River is beautiful and equally matched with the west view which includes Pinnacle Mountain. It is well lit in the evening and there are benches at the top to just sit an enjoy. The distance across is almost 1 mile.
I really enjoyed the walkway over the river/ dam. It's perfect for power walkers or those just strolling along. We stopped to admire the pelicans there,
Big dam bridge was beautiful! It had nice, clean paths for walking, running, or biking, and the view was spectacular across the entirety of the bridge. 10/10 would walk again.
At night the lights shine a pretty purple color! A friend showed me how wonderful it can be there listening to the heavy water flow from the dam💝
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!!
