Very cool walking bridge, close to the house. Goes from historic Argenta (NLR side) to a sculpture park in downton Little Rock. If you walk all the way through the sculpture park, you can take the Broadway bridge back to the house! It's about 2.5 miles round trip and usually takes me ~45 min walking.

~25 min drive from the house. Great hike - takes 1.5-2 hours. There are three, East, West and one that goes around the base. The East side is a bit more strenuous / more climbing involved. Bring water!!! https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/trails/east-summit-trail https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/trails/west-summit-trail https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/trails/base-trail

Experience the longest pedestrian and bicycle bridge in North America, built specifically for that use. This impressive structure was named the Big Dam Bridge because of its massive 4,226 foot span built atop Murray Lock and Dam. Elevated up to 90 feet above the Arkansas River, the Big Dam Bridge connects over 14 miles of scenic riverside trails in the cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock, and assists in the connection of 70,000 acres of various city, county, state and federal park land. It’s one of several Little Rock bridges that serve bicyclists and pedestrians. The trail provides cyclist and pedestrian access to the Clinton Presidential Center, the River Market, museums, restaurants and more. Come walk and ride on one of the most iconic Little Rock bridges!
