I was in Central AR recently and made my way out to Burns Park in North Little Rock. It’s the third time I have hit up the trails there, so things are starting to become familiar. It’s a fun little trail system that, if not for the rocks and occasional rooty bits, would be pretty mellow. However, the tread keeps your attention and the hot and humid AR summers make it quite a work out.
The Burns Park Proper trails include a few different loops. The longest is only 5 miles long, but you can easily piece together 10+ miles riding everything and the trails are bi-directional so you can double it if you choose. You can also link up with the AR River Trail, Pfeifer Loop, and some other destinations along the river. It’s a heck of a place to kill some time.
