So close to the city, a true gem of a trail with AMAZING sunsets/sunrises.
The trail is only about 1 1/2 miles rountrip, but the first 3/4 is up hill. It is classified as Difficult/Hard, and it is that. The trail is very rocky and use caution going up and down. The view from the top makes it all worth climbing the up hill trek! Great 360 views. The trail branches off in several areas, and you want to make sure to stay to the left, for the best route to the summit.
Lots and lots of people. Doable summit trail for kids and dogs with benches along the way to pause. great views!
Great view from the top. Challenging and the rocks above marker 6 caught us off guard. Will definitely do it again.
short and steep trail. less than 2 hours round trip. incredible views at the top.
Very rewarding trail. The trail itself is mostly rocky and a steep scramble during the last few hundred feet. Enjoyed the views on a clear day.
One of the best hikes in Arkansas! Loved the views and it is deceptively hard in the last 1/3 of the journey. Fun times.
One of the best views in Arkansas. Great hike. Short and steep but very rewarding. Also there is overflow parking on other side of the road because this park can be very busy.
This was a good easy trail. If you want more challenging go up the east side. We enjoyed this trail with the family
This is a super fun trail, but not an easy one. It gets steep and the scramble section catches a lot of folks off guard. The views at the top are almost as good as it gets for Arkansas.
Drive from Monroe, LA and it was definitely worth it. This was the best hike my dog and I have done in quite a while. It was a steep climb but the workout we got was fantastic! The views were perfect! Will definitely come back many more times to hike!
Had a wonderful time! Will be doing this hike several more times. Beautiful views and peaceful if you can get past all the people around you
I enjoy going up the East Summit and then down the West.
Great hike. Made it up in about an hour with overcast rainy weather but the trail was really nice. Beautiful views at the top and the rock steps going up were helpful.
Beautiful trail. I thought it was very hard.
