Green Trail Access from Boy Scout Trail gravel parking area on Arlene Laman Drive, .2 mile south of I- 40 bridge. From the large Burns Park Trail sign at the east end of the parking area, turn left on the gravel path and follow it north for 75 yards to the Green Trail painted with lime green blazes. Riders can turn left or right to follow this trail. By turning right the trail leads riders 75 yards to the Red Trail. The Green trail is a 4.7 mile singletrack loop that climbs and descends through Burns Park. The trail climbs the river ridge and offers several scenic vistas of the Arkansas River valley and downtown Little Rock. The Red trail is a (1.75 mile ) loop that traverses the hill inside the Green trail loop. Red Loop Trail Access from Boy Scout Trail gravel parking area on Arlene Laman Drive, .2 mile south of I- 40 bridge. From the large Burns Park Trail sign at the east end of the parking area, turn left on the gravel path, follow north for 75 yards then bear right on gravel (painted with green blazes) for 75 yards to the intersection of the Red and Green trails. The red trail is a 1.74 mile loop that traverses the hill inside the Green trail. Yellow Trail 2.2 miles long, easy, suitable for beginners, not rocky or technical. Avoid in winter and after a rain as it is often very muddy. The alluvial, river-bottom soil does not drain well. The trail flows between the Soccer fields and the river ridge through the bottomland hardwood alluvial floodplain forest. The red covered bridge parking lot is an ideal spot for starting this loop ride. It also provides easy access to the Red Trail. Pfeifer Loop 1.8 miles long, easy, suitable for beginners and families. This loop trail begins at the paved turnaround at the east end of the Big Dam Bridge parking lot. Access this parking area from Cooks Landing Road. The loop trail winds through the AR river floodplain in a loop that returns to the starting point. Riders also use the Pfeifer Loop trail to access the Burns Park Yellow trail. A shortcut trail bisects the Pfeifer Loop and travels north to the Yellow trail and the paved Arkansas River trail. Flat and curvy. Suitable for families and kids.
