The trail's destination is the "Crag", a rock formation that juts out from the bluff's face that resembles a hawk's beak. It overlooks Whitaker Creek and a huge valley stretching for a long distance. but this is not all, in the spring and fall rainy season you can discover a number of waterfalls.

The multiple views along the way are nearly just as amazing as the crag itself. Definitely a must when you find yourself near central AR.

awesome hike to hawksbill crag. Beautiful views! 6 mile drive to get to the parking area was definitely rough on my Pontiac, so i would advise an SUV or all wheel drive.

Beautiful views and the trail wasn't too hard. We checked out the lower part of the waterfall and it didn't disappoint!

We took our two pups on this hike. It was incredible. The views of the ozarks never stop and it was shady and cool. Recommend it!
