if the trails were only used by bikers they would be great. however, watch out for dogs off leashes and glowering walkers. if you can make it to alsopp then you can make it to burns park or camp robinson, both superior.

Alsopp Park has a great little set of trails, esp for being smack dab in the middle of LR. Lots of ups and downs with some very fun tight twisty downhills. Not tons of trail, but definitely worth a visit.

Start by the tennis courts and ride the outer loop clockwise to the top. Then jump on Beechwood St. and ride over the 2nd park. Drop down by the staircase and do a complete clockwise loop, then climb back up the hill on Beechwood and hit the 1st park again finishing your loop on a sweet twisty downhill back to the tennis court parking lot.

I love Allsop. Besides the trails being totally fun the place seems spiritual in a way. It is a great place to do quick runs over and over. There are so many options on the trails that you can ride for a while without repeating the same paths. There are a lot of rocks and roots, but that makes it all the more challenging. I love the rock garden near the foot bridge. Great place to get in some quick rides and a fun workout.

Customer Service

I like a lot of the trails available. My all time favorite would be the one where I enter at the cul de sac and cross the bridge. Climb the steep hill to the top. Turn right and ride all the way to the back of the tennis courts. Then I either repeat or find other trails. It's also fun to enter from Kavanaugh and ride through to the back of the tennis courts. There are some really great jumps on the trail to the right of the baseball field too. Watch your pressure for pinch flats, though.

I like starting off at Murray Park and making my way to Allsop. It gets my muscles warmed up and makes for an excellent run.

As written by the last poster. Nice in-town place to ride during the week if not at CARP.

This trail is technical and rough. No shortage of rocks and roots. Allsopp is composed of short, steep climbs and descents. The park is actually split into two zones (east and west) separated by a residential area. The main trail (perimeter) begins behind the tennis courts near the park entrance and climbs to skirt the residential area above. Several sub-trails descend off the perimeter trail to access the rest of the east zone. Access to the west zone (1 mile loop) is accomplished by a quick two block jaunt through the residential area. There are several 'loops' that can be combined in various ways to make a ride as long (or short) as needed. I ride this trail system at least 3 days a week and have 6, 8, 9, and 10 mile favorites. Park rules dictate that bikers yield to hiker/walkers, but reality is the other way around. This trail is a favorite for dog walkers too.

Customer Service

Perimeter trail, across residential area to west zone, 1 mile loop, back to east zone, first right off perimeter, cross first and second creeks, promenade loop, back across creek, first right and follow creek to park culdesac, hang right and climb paved trail to first foot bridge on left, take trail and stay right to baseball field. Repeat as necessary.

I've only been on these trails once, but I had a great time. The trails are short, but there are enough options to keep busy for quite a while. It's a great ride without having to leave the area, perfect for after work!

the trail alonside the arkansas river south side from the golf course all the way to river mountain park is fun to ride and very scenic. its not a tecchie ride, just a pleasant ride with lots of flowers, and old railroad bridge, and the river, also you may spot a few deer in the dark tree covered portions near the park. mostly flat so that anyone can easily ride it, even my eight year old grandaughter made the entire ride. if you want to fly over your handlebars and stuff, this isnt the trail.

Customer Service

park at murray park, ride to rebsamen golfcourse then circle backaround the dam and on down to river mountain park and back to murray, you can ride trails on both sides of the road.

Also known as "AllRock Park" this is definately a more technically oriented trail. The climbs are fairly short, but very tough, and the downhills are a blast. It's mostly singletrack throughout. The trails can be very rocky at times, so check your tire pressure unless you like pinch flats. Be sure to do the northern loop. This requires a traverse over pavement, but it's through a quiet neighborhood and somewhat scenic. This park is right in the middle of a residential area, so keep an eye up for other trail users and be courteous! It would be a sad day for mountain bikers in Little Rock if mtn bikes were banned from Allsop Park! I give this trail a 5 just because it was my favorite local trail even though it doesn't come close to what's out west.

Customer Service

Do the northern loop clockwise, and southern loop/section any way you desire..all are fun

I am originally from NC and was impressed with the funtitude of this little trail. Overly maintained and shared by pedestrians, this trail does feature the occasional root and rock to bounce on. My favorite parts are the concrete pipe, the switch back over a creek and the rocky climb near the street. Does anyone know what the deal is with the goldfish pond? Very strange. Give it four stars. Spoiled by Tsali.

Exxon side is more techincal and fun. Intermediate and up. Cedar hill side is longer and less technical.

lotsa roots and rocks. fun to ride but wouldnt be my first choice. its nice to be able to jump on the bike and get a couple runs in before work in the AM. alot of people in the area walk their dogs on the trails but in my experience they are friendly and reign in the pooches out of the way before you can even get in sight. i prefer camp robinson and/or "attila the hun" in hot springs.
