In case you haven't heard -portions of the Arkansas River Trail on the North Little Rock side (Big Rock Quarry to the Big Dam Bridge) are closed due to the significant rainfall and the flooding of the Arkansas River.
A map and more details are available here: http://www.nlrpr.org/cms/One.aspx?portalId=96195&pageId=238814
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact me.

Water was just crossing the trail near the Burns Park soccer fields at 5:57
It had already risen appreciably when I crossed again at 6:18
The river had just come over the trail near the pavilion at the north end of the BDB and water was rushing into the woods near Pfiefer Loop
I expect much of the NLR River Trail to be impassable for several days, so plan rides accordingly. The key is to be flexible.If the river does indeed rise another 6', it may not be possible to cross the BDB. I'll keep you posted as I have opportunities to ride, and feel free to share information or your experiences in the comments section.
