Tucker Creek Trail (as it is called on the map), or Kinley Trail (as it is called on mileage markers), is a 3.2 mile paved multi-use trail in Conway, AR, just northwest of Little Rock. There is a parallel dirt "mountain bike trail" that is no more challenging than merely riding on the path for some length.


Every .02 to .05 miles, there is a white-on-green mileage marker, usually posted on one of the many trailside light poles.

There is no noticeable elevation gain, though the trail does drop slightly as it heads southwest.

Tucker Creek is 10-30 ft. wide, no more than a foot deep at most, and slow-moving. All the Tucker Creek crossings are bridged. Two of the road crossings are tunneled; with one low-traffic exception, the other road crossings are signaled crosswalks.

There is a regular restroom at Gatlin Park and several portapotties along the way.

Also, at various points along the trail are the usual park stuff: doggie doo stations, jungle gyms, picnic tables, rest benches, etc.

Each trailhead, other than at the Walmart, has room for 12-20 cars.

    To hike
    From the main Conway hotel cluster at the I-40 / US-65 interchange, head south on Harkrider St. to the Winfield St. traffic circle. (Conway LOVES its traffic circles.) Go right. At the next traffic circle, go "straight" onto Tyler St. In a little over a mile, Gatlin Park will be on your left.
