Nice little piece of nature in the city. There are a lot of crisscrossing trails, not a lot of signage so it's easy to get on the wrong path. The northern section of the trail and park are much quieter and denser vegetation. The southern trail is used as a mountain biking trail as well. Lots of loose rocks, so careful to avoid a twisted ankle or spill. As always in Arkansas, check for ticks afterward.

Moderate-difficult hike. View from the top is excellent. Carry plenty of water especially during summer months.

The ranch is a nice place to visit in the fall and winter. However the field was burned in spring.

Tough but doable.

A super nice workout!! The view is amazing. Was so much more than I expected. I’ll be coming back for sure

So I did this trail last year and to say it’s a rewarding hike is an understatement! I’m a big gal and it took me some time to get to the top (like 2 hrs) but it was such a rewarding view! It’s a bucket list hike and still so proud of myself. It’s mostly climbing btw not hiking.

Great trail for a newer hiker. Took the family on this one. They got a little hot but did great. Will probably hike this one again. .

Awesome hike! View from the top is totally worth it!!

Loved it, very fun and exciting in the rain! Wear proper shoes!

Toughest climb I've done - rock scrambling, heart pumping, gorgeous views. can't wait to do the west side!

Significant litter - cigarette butts and alcohol containers all over. Small muddy pond. Maybe ok for catching catfish, but not great for hikes.

it was a tough climb, but definitely worth it!

Fun trail for running with a lot of rock and root hopping. A single loop, as measured by the GPS on my Garmin Fenix 3 is 2.6 miles.

I used to hike this trail all the time growing up. There is a part you are going over large boulders so this isn't a trail for the elderly or those that aren't nimble. Bring water. It's a beautiful overlook at the top.

Amazing every time I go! Clean , mean, and ready to be conquered

Beautiful easy to moderate hike. Actually is more like 3.5 miles. Shady all the way around and opportunity to see some wildlife.

This little mountain is an attention grabber! Becomes a boulder scramble about 3/4 way up. Awesome hike though!

Went up East Summit and came down West Summit. Very nice trail, no rock scaling and seems to be more dog friendly than East Summit. Majority of the trail is through the Forrest with a great view at the top.

Absolutely amazing. We wanted a tougher hike and this delivered! A lot of rock scaling and the view at the top is amazing. Highly suggest going up East Summit and going down West Summit.

Cool little trail. Feels short. Nice nature. Had a lot of bumble bees when we went. Surprised at how well taken care of and clean by where it is located being stuck back in the country some

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.

Lots to explore

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!
