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.

I like to park on the west side by the restrooms and playground area, but there is parking on the east side as well. I’ve done this trail for many years and it’s a personal favorite. I like to walk from the west side to the east side via the base trail, up the east side (more difficult side) and down the west side (easier side). East side has a steep rocky environment to climb over and is guaranteed to make you sweat. Beautiful views at the top are of the Arkansas river and Lake Maumelle.

Nice paved trail quick trail!

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

Lots to explore

Loved this hike! Definitely very rocky (most of the hiking is scaling up the mounting) and not pet friendly. Will require shoes with good tred!

Great hike, taxing but rewarding!

Great trail that weaves back and forth over a creek. Has tree cover, small bluffs, small waterfall, birds, and insects.

Lightly trafficked, good trail running. Can stay wet after some decent rain. Description says 4.9 mi but it’s logged at 6.5 +

The swan was aggressive and bit my daughter. She was 40 feet from shoreline

Great Sunday afternoon hike!

I had read very little about this trail but have heard about it from several friends. I didn't have any expectations. I was very surprised by all the boulder climbing but it was so worth it when I got to the top. This was a bucket list hike I'm glad I did.

We live on Southridge Dr so walk this trail several times a week and never get tired of its beauty! We’re moving this summer and this will be the #1 thing that we’ll miss about Little Rock. The creeks and waterfalls are running good today!

This involves hiking uphill and rock scrambling! Kind of difficult but the view is just stunning!

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.

Beautiful!!!! Easy trail!!

This trail was challenging to say the least. But completely worth it once I got to the top. I went solo on this hike and once I hit the boulders is definitely challenged me, honestly wanted to turn around. But I’m glad I didn’t. It was work all of the sore muscles today!

Did it a few years ago when I was in better shape. Hope to do it again someday. It was difficult but definitely worth it.

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.
