Wow this Trail was challenging but gorgeous views that are so worth it! Take your time, I would not recommend brining little kids all the way up due to climbing over rocks.

Nice trail with solid views at the top. Like others have said, markers 1-6 are relatively easy, but 7-11 are brutal, especially on a hot day (when we went the heat index was 105). Bring more water than you think you need as a good part of the trail is not shaded. AllTrails’s measurement of 1.2 isn’t close. The trail itself says it’s 1.5 and my Strava tracker 1.9.

Trail well marked. Someone said it before me, but it is basically a straight staircase climb. Beautiful view!

This is one of my favorite trails in central Arkansas! The payoff at the top makes it worth it. This trail is basically like taking the stairs. It’s kid friendly and dog friendly. Have fun!

rocky climb easily done in tennis shoes. bring water in the summer as central arkansas is humid without wind in the summer. can be slippery when wet.

I would have rated it hard instead of moderate. About half way up it becomes nothing but rocks. It’s all worth it when you reach the top! The views are spectacular

Good, easy trail until marker 7 or so - then the boulder scramble makes it a bit tougher up through 10. It’s a steep trail. Took the west trail up, and the east down - East is rocks at least half of the route. Great views, would definitely do again.

The rocky uphill climb definitely gives you a run for your money. But it’s worth it once you reach the top!

Great trail to get your exercise in!! Beautiful views but heavily populated. Many times we had to stop because of how many people were there. I’d recommend going during the week if possible.
