Big Dam Bridge - Review
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, Little Rock Reviews
Safe, and well lit. Its always bustling with people on warm summer nights. Lots of spiders on the bridge, though, not that anyone can help that. Keep squeamish kids from grabbing on to the railing! Super fun to walk. Connected to the river trail and little island.
The Big Dam Bridge is a unique place to take a walk and enjoy great views of Little Rock, North Little Rock and the Arkansas River. Just be aware there are bicyclists sharing the bridge with pedestrians and they have little regard for people who get in their way.
A nice attraction while you walk or ride your bicycle as part of the Arkansas River Trail. It has a gentle climb, but you are rewarded with a beautiful view of Little Rock and the Arkansas River. There are observation areas on the bridge and stationary binoculars for checking out the Arkansas mountains farther away.
A great place to walk or ride bikes. The scenery is beautiful, and it always seems cooler on the bridge in the hot Arkansas summer. There is usually a breeze over the water. Most hikers and bikers are polite and friendly.
SPIDERS,SPIDERS,SPIDERS!!!! they are everywhere on the bridge, I have never seen so many spiders in one spot in my life!!! be careful when you go, you really see them at night time, me and my husband went for a walk the other night and havent been to the bridge in about 2 years...and I was mortified!! the spiders are worse, where the overhead rail is at on the top of the bridge, where the blue lights are. There was 100's of them, and im not exaggerating...seriously it was that many. If you wish to go please be careful when taking small children and pet, they are literally in between every rail on the bridge. I hope the city treat the bridge soon, because that many spiders is a serious festation than can be dangerous or costly if someone is bitten.
