We fit this nice n easy, wide trail in between rain storms. Shared the trail with maybe a dozen deer. With this trail, it’s easy to walk to the highest point in Arkansas.

Enjoyed the trail though it was a little disappointing to not have any views from the top. I would have a map as their are multiple entry points for this trail. Enjoyed the self guided tour of the trail. Still trying to figure out why there is a water meter in the middle of the woods on the trail....the things that make you go hmmm. Overall nice easy trail.

beautiful hike especially during mid spring. If you plan to complete the entire trail dont forget water and possibly energy bars or snacks. Its a great hike and a great accomplishment

By far my favorite state park and mountain. This is a beautiful hike with amazing views and plenty of wildlife to see. I suggest taking plenty of water and protein snacks if you plan to complete the entire 18 miles. Some may find areas a bit strenuous but over all a easy day long hike. Enjoy

A keeper, but with caveats. First, I suggest reversing the trail, starting at Cove Lake. (The trailhead is almost directly across from the Cove Lake entrance. If you do not want to pay the $5 fee for parking at the lake, there is room for two cars to park next to the trailhead.) Reasons to reverse the trail: its becomes up-down and you end up at the lake. The trail is 12+ miles one way. (I hiked only 4+ miles in.) Not a spectacular trail (at least the first 4 miles), but enjoyable.

Short, easy hike but almost felt like I had to do it just to hit the highest elevation point in Arkansas. Was disappointed that there was no view from the top.

I guess you would consider the swimming area pretty big. If you’re a flea. The place was full of weird rednecks that were running around stealing things and a Sad&Angsty™️ worker that even helped one couple. RIP my donut raft (2018-2018). Gone but never forgotten.

Walked this a couple years ago while visiting for a wedding. Makes for a very easy walk from the lodge to the peak mainly just to say you’ve done it. Saw some wild life along the way.

Pretty forest and mice skort trail, wish there was a scenic lookout at the end of trail. Good to do once.

This is a fairly easy trail. You can hike down to Buchman's pool. It's the remnants of a swimming pool which was cool to see. Only the walls remain. It does take some effort to come back up from the pool. Enjoyed it in the afternoon.

It's a beautiful trail. Very peaceful in the morning. Saw deer twice!

Interesting and fairly easy for the novice hiker.

Nice walk, not many views however.

No view at the top, but it was a nice morning hike.

Super easy trail with a wooded view. Always cool to visit a high point but if you're looking for a good view, check out the balcony at the lodge! Beautiful park though, highly recommend taking the North Rim Trail and connecting to Signal hill then hopping on the Mossback Trail to connect back to the Visitor Center.

Easy.

This is relatively easy trail, which we accessed from the south side near the State Park lodge parking area. There is another trail head on the north end near the Cameron Bluff Camping area.

We did it yesterday! Beautiful scenery!!

Great short trail. Not much for views but good nonetheless. Easy.

Not a difficult trail, but great views of the valley. The pic that I snapped was one of my favorites!

Loved this trail! We walked out to the towers on the west side of the mountain and watched the sunset. There's a fire tower out there and several nice places to watch the sunset or stars or meteor showers. The best views from the bluffs are on off-site trails that aren't marked, but are visible if you're watching for them.
