Lake Maumelle is a major water source for the Little Rock area. Central Arkansas Water owns the lake. This little-known trail is a short, easy, out-and-back trail of about 1.4 miles (0.7-miles each way). The trail is asphalt for the first 0.2 miles and offers views of the Jolly Roger's Marina, wildflowers, and birding opportunities. At the end of the asphalt path, the trail continues another 0.5-miles to a peninsula offering great views across Lake Maumelle. The Audubon Society of Central Arkansas has built an observation deck at the end of the trail for bird observing. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved asphalt and then turns to natural surface. The paved section is typically at least four feet wide. The width for the natural surface section is unknown. The estimated grade for the entire trail is flat (all 1% or less). There are benches by the water for resting.Show more
