This was pretty difficult for a “moderate” trail. Gorgeous views but very challenging.

Nice views. Good workout coming back from summit. Need to upgrade my shoes.

I was a first timer. It was a great hike. And amazing views at the top! Plan your time to relax at the top for a little bit if you can.

I saw all ages there today and lots and lots of dogs.

Love this trail. Just enough for a quick sweat! Little rock is humid, i see a lot of people going up without enough water. Hydration is important long or short hike.

It was my first time in the Little Rock area and I happened upon this park while researching things to do in the area. I hiked to the top with a 40L backpack on (just for the heck of it) and large DSLR in hand... and it was very doable. The heat was definitely the worst part but the views from the top were worth the sweat!

kinda the go to thing to make non natives hike before leaving

Nice place to take an afternoon stroll with the fur babies! In the fall it would be even more beautiful.

Very creepy. Definite signs of people living in the hills/woods. Saw a grown man standing under the bridge at Chenal. He had his eyes closed and his head was facing the trail. I am 6'2" 245 lbs and this guy made me uncomfortable so I abandoned my hike and went back on the sidewalks of Chenal Pkwy. I won't hike there. again.

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.

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

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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..!
