Walked this a couple years ago while visiting for a wedding. Makes for a very easy walk from the lodge to the peak mainly just to say you’ve done it. Saw some wild life along the way.

Pretty forest and mice skort trail, wish there was a scenic lookout at the end of trail. Good to do once.

This is a fairly easy trail. You can hike down to Buchman's pool. It's the remnants of a swimming pool which was cool to see. Only the walls remain. It does take some effort to come back up from the pool. Enjoyed it in the afternoon.

It's a beautiful trail. Very peaceful in the morning. Saw deer twice!

Interesting and fairly easy for the novice hiker.

Nice walk, not many views however.

No view at the top, but it was a nice morning hike.

Love the views from the Lodge, the trail was nice. Took my time and enjoyed the plants and greenery.

Super easy trail with a wooded view. Always cool to visit a high point but if you're looking for a good view, check out the balcony at the lodge! Beautiful park though, highly recommend taking the North Rim Trail and connecting to Signal hill then hopping on the Mossback Trail to connect back to the Visitor Center.

This is relatively easy trail, which we accessed from the south side near the State Park lodge parking area. There is another trail head on the north end near the Cameron Bluff Camping area.

We did it yesterday! Beautiful scenery!!

Great short trail. Not much for views but good nonetheless. Easy.

Not a difficult trail, but great views of the valley. The pic that I snapped was one of my favorites!

Loved this trail! We walked out to the towers on the west side of the mountain and watched the sunset. There's a fire tower out there and several nice places to watch the sunset or stars or meteor showers. The best views from the bluffs are on off-site trails that aren't marked, but are visible if you're watching for them.

Nice hiking trail with a neat stop at the highest point in Arkansas.

The trail itself isn't bad. The destination is underwhelming, though.

a great nature trail if you know to expect a short leisure hike. well maintained summit.

Mind blowing! Love Arkansas! Can't wait to take my friends, and family!

No view, and the trail maps at the head and summit are less than helpful. To make it a loop, you end up having to walk quite a ways along the road. Consider doing this one out and back unless you are confident about where the loop will take you.

Nice little trail to the highest point in Arkansas!

Nice short warm up hike on a well maintained trail through the woods to the highest point in AR. The lodge at the trailhead looked to be a fun place to stay with awesome views of the valley below. We'll make a point to book a weekend there in our next trip to AR

Short walk through the woods. Worth it just say you have been to the highest point in the state.
