Great trail. You forget you are in the middle of West Little Rock.

Fabulous trail. Relatively easy but make sure you visit the overlook which is off the quarry trail. One of the best views around.

Pretty trail, mostly shaded. Nice bridges and benches all along the route. Great little forested respite in the middle of the concrete jungle of west Little Rock.

The trail was easy for my kids.

Great trail for a quick run. Well kept and good scenery. Would recommend for anyone in the area.

We Started this trail at Conner park off Cantrell then hiked to Walton heights neighborhood where the river trail starts. . Slightly difficult on the way back w steady climbs. But very nice w a creek to cool off and wooded and shady. And it ends at two rivers so you could make it an all day hike by adding the little rock bridges if you felt so inclined.

I park at the Roller - Chenal Funeral Home and walk across Chenal. The trail head is between the East and West lanes of Chenal. Mostly flat and mostly shady. A good place for a summer walk. No lights, so you cannot walk after dark or before dawn.

The trailhead is virtually impossible to find: go behind the Comet Cleaners and you'll find the trail. Otherwise, it's a nice, easy, widepath trail through the city with some lovely scenery. Great for trailrunning.

The entire River Trail is a fun hike to undertake but beware: portions on the Little Rock side are very poorly maintained due to construction. Cutaway from the trail near the LR Amphitheatre (there will be no signs instructing you to do so). Also, when you get near LaHarpe Blvd., take the trail that goes down a street near the railroad tracks: there is no sign, but you can avoid having to walk down Cantrell Blvd. by Dillard's. Overall, it's great to accomplish but there's still many things that could make it more walker/runner/biker friendly. Bring water and prepare for limited access to bathrooms.

Great, shaded trail. Very flat.

trail will be a lot better when they get it worked around Dillards.

It was fairly easy trail with a very pleasant creek flowing beside most of the trail. There was, however, there was a significant number of fallen trees due to the recent storms. Also, I would not recommend the trail shortly after a significant rain. The trail crosses back and forth over the creek several times and any additional water flow could make the crossings very difficult. Also, once you come up into the neighborhood the trail becomes significantly more difficult to follow.

It is a great for some light running. It also connects to a path in St. Charles Place that adds a nice extension to a run. It is mostly shaded and there are a couple of really peaceful spots by the creek.
