A spectacular mountaintop setting. Breathtaking panoramic scenery. Royal hospitality. Queen Wilhelmina State Park is this, and more. The park's crowning attraction is its renowned hostelry, a historic lodging tradition born in 1898 with the original "Castle in the Sky" that graced this same lofty locale high above the Ouachita Mountains over 100 years ago. Today's Queen Wilhelmina Lodge features 38 guest rooms including two spacious Queen's Rooms and two royal Regent's Rooms, fine Southern fare in the Queen's Restaurant, and a treasure-filled gift shop. Park campsites, hiking trails and overlooks are just a short walk from the lodge. Come experience this royal retreat atop 2,681-foot Rich Mountain, Arkansas's second highest peak. Of the 52 Arkansas state parks, Queen Wilhelmina is one of the state park system's eight mountain state parks.
My husband and I went hiking on this trail it's 1.48 miles exactly from car back to the car. We used one hiking stick each. Many sports were very very steep and slippery due to the moss growing on wood and rocks. The trail is very well maintained and clean! Breezy and shady which made for a great hike. It took us an hour to finish.
