Trails of Little Rock
A Guide To Little Rock's Land And Water Trails
Johnnie Chamberlin

Thanks to a new book by Johnnie Chamberlin, outdoor enthusiasts in Greater Little Rock can find ways to pursue their interests virtually in their own backyards. With 40 maps included, this comprehensive guide contains dozens of hiking, biking and water routes.

"...a great resource for all trail bikers and runners, hikers and kayakers."
Pat Piazza, Arkansas Bicycle Club

Trails of Little Rock is great for getting in shape, families with small children, mountain bikers, joggers, road bikers, hikers, paddlers, and anyone who enjoys casual strolls in scenic settings. The ook is easy to use and features a detailed trail description, along with ratings for trail difficulty as well as scenery. Each map is marked with the trail name and location, along with roads and contours, and also distinguishes between paved and unpaved trails. The book also features the Top 10 Most Scenic Trails and a Top 10 trails for Children.


JOHNNIE CHAMBERLIN is assistant director of conservation at Audubon Arkansas. He believes that Little Rock easily could become an urban-outdoor haven containing "an expansive network of land and water trails that meander through a wide variety of habitat types," connect much of the city, and allow residents easy access to activities like hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing and kayaking.

Chamberlin, 28, has given numerous speeches about Fourche Creek, guided float tours, conducted habitat and stream-improvement projects, and led efforts to curb litter. He has done blogging on environmental and social justice issues for and also written articles for Arkansas Wild and Sync magazines.
