Little Rock and central Arkansas
I am planning a tour that will take me to Little Rock and on to Hot Springs. I'm looking for advice from people in the area about how to get to the downtown Little Rock area safely then on to Hot Springs.
I will be coming from the west and have pretty much decided on taking Hwys 300 and 10 near Pinnacle Mountain State Park then working my way east on city streets and trails to downtown. Finding a route to Hot Springs is proving more difficult. It looks like my best bet would be to aim for Benton then take Hwys 5 and 7 to Hot Springs. Or from Benton to aim for the town of Lonsdale then take Hwy 127 or Spring Street. After Hot Springs I'll be out in the woods and not as concerned about traffic.
I've asked for help from a Little Rock bicycle club, but have only received 1 response.
So if you have advice or experience with this area I'd be appreciative to hear it. Thanks.
