Pinnacle Mountain is a day-use park dedicated to environmental education, recreation, and preservation. Located just west of Little Rock, this natural environment was set aside in 1977 as Arkansas's first state park adjoining a major metropolitan area. Operating as a day-use only park, Pinnacle Mountain is dedicated to preservation, recreation, and environmental education. Park interpreters and volunteers help visitors and students understand man's relationship to the environment in the 2,000-acre park that offers a rich diversity of natural habitat.
This relatively quick hike ends with beautiful views of the Arkansas River valley. Our 10- year-old traversed the rocks at the top like it was nothing. Our teen girls, however, chose to wait at the 7 with our dog. It is a favorite with the locals, so expect lots of traffic during the weekends or holidays, but it is a fantastic hike regardless.
Arkansas is gorgeous! The trail is well maintained and very friendly. There is a section with rocks and boulders to "climb" that can be difficult for kids or small dogs. I carried my 8 month old Samoyed in a couple spots. Top overlooks Arkansas River!
Rocky is a understatement But loved every bit of it I went up on the west side and went down the east side then hiked the base trail when I say went down thats how it mostly was down on my butt sliding down the rocks on the majority of it
Great little work out with a rewarding view once you get to the top the trail splits towards the top we took the right as I wanted a challenge as it was nothing but walking up on rocks the trail to the left seemed lots easier as I was watching others just walk on up once you get to the top the views were amazing the wind was strong and cool and not that many people on the trail which we were there on a Monday loved it a must do hike
Very nice easy trail Hiked it 1/9/2017 noone else on the trail very peaceful clean trail You just go to the visitors center and you will see the sign for Rocky Valley Trail and take off from there by the pond...make sure you walk up to the overlook as soon as you start the trail awesome view there is also the East Quarry Spur and Maumelle over look ....once you get to the top it is a awesome view of Pinnacle Mountain Trail is very well marked and maintained
