Starting just west of the visitor center, this trail follows the north rim of the mountain to Cameron Bluff Overlook Drive. A spur connects with the western end of the Mossback Ridge Trail to create a 4.4-mile loop back to the visitor center. (Red Blazes), or it can be an out and back trail. It leads through hardwood forests, scrub oaks, and cedar glades across several tumbling creeks. Windswept bluffs overlook a rugged hollow, the Arkansas River Valley and the Ozark Plateau.

A good hike. A bit challenging for my two young ones but enjoyable.

My girlfriend and I hiked this trail a few weeks back. Was quite surprised of how badly the trail was grown up, I would have figured it being such a popular destination that it would have been better taken care of. Otherwise for the larger part it was a great hike with some really nice views. Would definitely hike it again.

The trail starts at the visitor's center, and looks a bit like an overgrown arboretum, but in a good way. the trail path is pretty clear and isn't marked until you cross another trail. Loved the views, moderate hike as some of it is uphill, lots of bees around the flowers.

The hike was nice and cool it had multiple overlooks some of the trail had alot of rocks so be careful plus we crossed a creek twice where my dog cooled off. Over all happy
about the trail.
