My 7 year old had not problems and my 3 year old made it up the first 1/3 and was carried the rest of the way up and 2/3 of the way back down :) beautiful views at the top though, worth it

This trail is pretty nice, decently long though anyone could do it. It's nice for a stroll. not necessarily hiking unless you go off trail. which is also kinda fun. There are enough man-made sights to take in to keep it interesting.

I like to park on the west side by the restrooms and playground area, but there is parking on the east side as well. I’ve done this trail for many years and it’s a personal favorite. I like to walk from the west side to the east side via the base trail, up the east side (more difficult side) and down the west side (easier side). East side has a steep rocky environment to climb over and is guaranteed to make you sweat. Beautiful views at the top are of the Arkansas river and Lake Maumelle.

A fine, challenging hike very easy to get to and with great views and beautiful forests all the way up! I'm a 26 year old man in average shape, and I was able to summit from the trailhead in about 30 minutes at a moderate pace, but you could easily take an hour if you go slow and soak in all the scenery.

Very popular trail. I was out on a Thursday evening, and there were kids as young as 10 up there with families, and dogs too. At the summit, don't expect peaceful silence; lots of teenagers hanging out and a few people on their phones. Still, the sights are amazing and the mountains roll on for miles from the top. If you're lucky you can easily spot rainbows!

Nice paved trail quick trail!

Excelent. Quite easy..!

I really enjoying doing this trail as a alternative to climbing up Pinnacle.

Loved this hike! Definitely very rocky (most of the hiking is scaling up the mounting) and not pet friendly. Will require shoes with good tred!

Nice trial, very crowded however. Still steeper than I had thought. Rocks are pretty slippery due to all the foot traffic...beautiful view at the top!

Great hike, taxing but rewarding!

Great trail that weaves back and forth over a creek. Has tree cover, small bluffs, small waterfall, birds, and insects.

Great trail and rocks to scale.

Lightly trafficked, good trail running. Can stay wet after some decent rain. Description says 4.9 mi but it’s logged at 6.5 +

Pretty easy hike. Beautiful views:)

Perfect trail for beautiful views of Pinnacle Mountain. I highly recommend taking this trail all the way to the east quarry trail.

I had hiked up the East side and descended the West. It was a little easier descending the West but way more people to navigate around. I loved every minute and am glad I went. This was a bucket list hike but not for the out of shape.

I had read very little about this trail but have heard about it from several friends. I didn't have any expectations. I was very surprised by all the boulder climbing but it was so worth it when I got to the top. This was a bucket list hike I'm glad I did.

We live on Southridge Dr so walk this trail several times a week and never get tired of its beauty! We’re moving this summer and this will be the #1 thing that we’ll miss about Little Rock. The creeks and waterfalls are running good today!

Great! Beautiful views on the East Quarry spur along with some old yuccas, daffodils, summer snowflake, and prickly pear cactus!

This involves hiking uphill and rock scrambling! Kind of difficult but the view is just stunning!

Love it. Challenging but you feel accomplished when you reach the point.

I live very near Two RIvers Park and my wife and I walk there often, at least once or twice per week. Over the last few years, there have been numerous cars having their windows broken out and items stolen. I have heard people describing how they have seen people knocking out windows in multiple cars and rifling them for purses and valuables and driving away. I was always sad to hear about each occurrence.
Well, it was my turn a week ago, with my car window getting smashed in along with a car a few spaces away.
What I am wondering is why the Parks & Recreation Dept haven't installed video cameras in the parking lots, and help put an end to this ongoing problem.
If the park were made safer, I would say that it is 4 out of 5. But until then I urge caution in where you park, and leaving valuables in your car.

It’s a nice local hike when in time crunch. Can stroll, run or fast walk this trail.

Take lots of water and take it slow:)

Great hike! Took my two year old in the pack so thank goodness for the benches along the way

Nice view at the summit

This trail was challenging to say the least. But completely worth it once I got to the top. I went solo on this hike and once I hit the boulders is definitely challenged me, honestly wanted to turn around. But I’m glad I didn’t. It was work all of the sore muscles today!
