Pinnacle Mountain State Park, just west of Little Rock, is ideal for hiking, sightseeing, and studying nature.
Pinnacle Mountain, rising 1,011 feet above the Arkansas River, has been a natural landmark for centuries. Pinnacle Mountain is one of seven peaks of the Ouachita Mountain Range within this 2,356-acre park, but these represent only a portion of the diverse habitat protected here. Situated just west of Little Rock, this day-use park is known for its popular hiking trails and panoramic views.
Scenic vistas overlooking the Arkansas River are easily accessible near the visitor center. Those seeking a more adventurous experience can hike one or more trails, which vary from one to five miles in length. Hikers can also access the 223-mile Ouachita National Recreation Trail at the park.
