My family really likes this trail!

Really lovely jog. Took my pup here for a run in the AM and evening. There is a great water fountain for pups to keep them hydrated. The path is wide, clean, and not overly crowded with very pretty views.

This is in the Fort Smith National Historical Site, but you don't have to pay to walk the trail. It's pretty easy, with only slight inclines. It's also completely paved, so it's accessible.
There's information boards about the area & the river flows right alongside it. I recommend.

It's a nice trail. Some fairly recent additions of lightning and a few bench areas along the first part of the trail have been added. The extended trail has been paved with asphalt and goes through a corridor of trees and has few neat sights, like an old worn out bridge and a kayak launch area if you explore off to the sides a bit.

Really great for running.

Very nice

Lovely trails that lead into the woods by the Arkansas river past the closed loop around the pond. gorgeous nature scenery

Flat, so way too easy for my overweight self. Concrete path so easy to navigate. No trees and no shade! Made this summer time hike miserable. Nice view of the River. But as far as hiking it's not even remotely desirable to return to hike. Bikes, I think I might give this one another go if I had a bike!

A super trail! Entirely paved, it's a great multi-purpose trail for anyone, and it's wheelchair accessible. It's also SUPER wide, so cyclists can ride by and never get near walkers. It's also entirely lit by streetlights with a really pretty view of the river. The ONLY reason I gave it four stars is because there are no trash cans - which means if you pick up dog poop you get to carry the bag the entire trip.

A short walk through a minor historic site. The Battle of Massard Prairie was fought near here and this trail goes through one of the emcampments

Nice level trail fro running, walking or riding. Quiet and near the river, good for bird watching. Even though it is in an urban area, it can seem a little isolated
