Summary:
Lots of fun riding right in Little Rock area. Plenty of single track to ride. Trail network was in very good condition today. Several small rock gardens. Fun flowing sections as well. I have ridden this trail several times. Use caution at several road crossings since most Arkansans do not obey speed limits. Occasional trail runners and hikers. Unfortunately some trails are visited by horses, leaving obvious presents behind. Ample parking all around.

Recommended Route:
There are several marked trails: red, white, yellow etc. There are several places to pick up the trail network.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Camp Robinson, Jack Fork

Summary:
burns park has improved a lot in the last year or so. some of the improvement is due to better trail maintenance and some is due to having had a drier year. if you are in decent shape you can easily ride every loop out there. i prefer starting at the covered bridge and warming up on the yellow loop. then, in order, hitting the white, blue, red and green loops. there are some great sections that are fast fun and flowy but there are also some tire destroying rock gardens. if you ride here bring a tube and pump - burns park kills tires - lots of sharp shale/slate. theres also pfiefer loop over by the entrance to the bridge - its almost 2mi and nearly all flat - great for kids or introducing the gal to mtb.

Summary:
Good trail to visit if you are in the Little Rock area. Will definitely give you a good workout. I consider myself a beginner and i have to dismount maybe 4-5 times to rest up a bit(being a former 10+ year smoker who just quit a month ago might have something to do with that). Lots of climbs and descents. If you take the green loop, which i did, about midway through you will come to an opening that overlooks the golf course, the river, and downtown Arkansas. It's a great place to stop and enjoy the view. The only negative i can think of this trail is that there are just so many rocks out there to navigate....it gets a bit bumpy at times. However, i like this trail a good deal more than Allsop.

Recommended Route:
I've only done the Green Loop. Both times i have ridden this trail i have gone clockwise. I think that is the way most people do it.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Allsopp and Pfeiffer Loop

Summary:
Great trail system for an "in town" trail. There are flats if you are just learning to ride trails, and some good climbs for everyone. There are some rocky sections, but lately there has been some maintenance to smooth things out.

Enjoy - it's an awesome trail that is luckily still very under utilized for being so accessible.

Recommended Route:
I recommend the green trail - add on the yellow in the flats - sort of a perimeter loop.

If you are into jumps and or obstacles, when you get to the quarry, the obstacles are at the top - and the gravel service road will take you to the jumps at the bottom.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Camp Robinson for miles and miles of single track, allsop for a quick couple of technical loops, river trail for passing roadies :)
