Easy to find and a great way to get a quick break from hotels and meeting rooms. The one mile walking bridge crosses the Arkansas River. Also, there is a nice connecting trail on the North Litttle Rock side if one mile isn't enoigh.

The name is all the hype. The bridge was a long walkway with lots of power walkers when we went. Not much of an attraction to someone from out of town, other than my youngest still laughing over the name.

I was not too impressed with this bridge. I really thought the name of it was the best. May have enjoyed it better if it wasn't so hot outside.

My family and I frequently utilize the Big Dam Bridge for walking and biking. The construction of the bridge made a significant improvement to the already plentiful bike paths and trails in central AR.

First, you cannot get to the Big Dam Bridge from the Clinton Library. PArk at the bridge, you can literally cross it in 15 minutes or spend hours there. Hope this helps.
