River Mountain Park

New Mountain Bike Trails to Open in Little Rock

Searcy County Waterfall
The Arkansas Parks & Recreation Foundation and their partners, the City of Little Rock & the Walton Family Foundation, are hosting the opening of the River Mountain Park Trails in Little Rock. The trail features various levels of shared use and mountain bike trail from beginner to expert. The River Mountain Park project will be home to the first professionally built trails in the city park system. The partnership is also working to complete gateway and beginning trails at Two Rivers Park that are under construction currently. All together, River Mountain Park and Two Rivers Park will be a basecamp for the entire family whether–exploring the trails by bike or by foot, getting out on River Trail, connecting to Pinnacle Mountain State Park, or kayaking the river–the area is activated for countless outdoor adventures.

Here is a little preview of the new trails:

The opening will feature two events:
