Scenic City: Experience LIttle Rock's Great Outdoors
From hiking to golfing to even kayaking, Little Rock isn't the capital city of "The Natural State" for nothing!
We’re famous for our scenic trails with diverse vantage points, but the best view in town is no doubt the breathtaking, 360-degree perspective found at the top of Pinnacle Mountain.
Riders of all skill levels love the River Trail, which connects 5,000 acres of scenic parkland with paved paths. Make a day of it: Start in downtown Little Rock, then peddle your way west to the Big Dam Bridge, which offers lofty views from as high as 90 feet above the river.
This championship course is nestled beautifully in a bend of the Arkansas River. Have a camera handy on No. 13, as the river and downtown skyline views are picture-perfect.
Where: Little Maumelle Water Trail at Pinnacle Mountain State Park (West Little Rock)
