Very creepy. Definite signs of people living in the hills/woods. Saw a grown man standing under the bridge at Chenal. He had his eyes closed and his head was facing the trail. I am 6'2" 245 lbs and this guy made me uncomfortable so I abandoned my hike and went back on the sidewalks of Chenal Pkwy. I won't hike there. again.

Short and sweet

Nice little piece of nature in the city. There are a lot of crisscrossing trails, not a lot of signage so it's easy to get on the wrong path. The northern section of the trail and park are much quieter and denser vegetation. The southern trail is used as a mountain biking trail as well. Lots of loose rocks, so careful to avoid a twisted ankle or spill. As always in Arkansas, check for ticks afterward.

The ranch is a nice place to visit in the fall and winter. However the field was burned in spring.

Great trail for a newer hiker. Took the family on this one. They got a little hot but did great. Will probably hike this one again. .

Significant litter - cigarette butts and alcohol containers all over. Small muddy pond. Maybe ok for catching catfish, but not great for hikes.

Fun trail for running with a lot of rock and root hopping. A single loop, as measured by the GPS on my Garmin Fenix 3 is 2.6 miles.

Beautiful easy to moderate hike. Actually is more like 3.5 miles. Shady all the way around and opportunity to see some wildlife.

Cool little trail. Feels short. Nice nature. Had a lot of bumble bees when we went. Surprised at how well taken care of and clean by where it is located being stuck back in the country some

This trail is pretty nice, decently long though anyone could do it. It's nice for a stroll. not necessarily hiking unless you go off trail. which is also kinda fun. There are enough man-made sights to take in to keep it interesting.

Nice paved trail quick trail!

I really enjoying doing this trail as a alternative to climbing up Pinnacle.

I live very near Two RIvers Park and my wife and I walk there often, at least once or twice per week. Over the last few years, there have been numerous cars having their windows broken out and items stolen. I have heard people describing how they have seen people knocking out windows in multiple cars and rifling them for purses and valuables and driving away. I was always sad to hear about each occurrence.
Well, it was my turn a week ago, with my car window getting smashed in along with a car a few spaces away.
What I am wondering is why the Parks & Recreation Dept haven't installed video cameras in the parking lots, and help put an end to this ongoing problem.
If the park were made safer, I would say that it is 4 out of 5. But until then I urge caution in where you park, and leaving valuables in your car.

It’s a nice local hike when in time crunch. Can stroll, run or fast walk this trail.

I enjoyed the trail itself. It is along a creek and there are several nice bridges. As others have described, the trail head can be tricky to find but if you follow the directions you will figure it out. My biggest concern is the trash along one of the rocky hills as if someone had been living there, as well as the grown man I saw go down off the path into some brush to join another person and another couple grown men who were up on a plateau.. I don't want to assume anything about why they were there.. And I don't want to assume they could be up to no good but just be careful folks! It was 35 degrees out and the creek was partially frozen over and it was in the middle of the day. Just seemed a little odd for some reason. There were a couple other people running the trail, which helped me to feel safer. I won't be going back alone.

Great local trail for the Hillcrest area - can be divided into a north/west loop (2.5 miles with easy access from Beachwood and Lookout or Lookout and Cantrell) and south/east loop (3 miles easy access from the Kavanuagh Promenade or Allsopp Park)

Trail was good at the beginning, but it became indiscernible and we got lost.

Very scenic. Beware of snakes.

Great for running or walking on pavement without worry of cars.

I'm a big fan of this trail. It's short and sweet. The Nature Trail winds through the woods on one side of the lake. The other half of the lake has a paved trail great for winding down your run. And you always see Billy the Swan out there chilling on the lake. Very peaceful.

i thought the mountain bike route to be a bit treacherous with all the leaves down making it very slippery so we ended up going on the the paved routes through this park, very beautiful in the fall and so close to downtown Little Rock.

nice trail but surface is rocky, and if lots of leaves accumulate, the uneven surface can be unpredictable for little hikers. Hiking with 2 kids (6, 8 yr old) and they did the trail without much trouble, but there were a couple falls and minor bruises. Overall a good trail w rolling hills. We saw several trail runners on it. If starting at the West side trailhead (near the playground) and you go counter-clockwise the trail markers count down from 28 to 1.

Had a really hard time finding the loop mentioned in the description. The map shows two loops interconnected one in the South part of the park and one in the North. No description is given about where the trailhead is for either loop. And from the main parking lot there are many trails that one can follow and none of them are described as a loop by any of the signs on the trails. Much to confusing for someone looking for a quick trek on Black Friday.

Nice park with pond and seating areas. Cross section of top path has areas where falls are possible due to combination of steep slope, loose rocks & pine needles. Not a trail I’ll have in my repeat hikes, but I’m glad to experience a new trail.
