Really enjoyed this park. Not too crowded but obviously loved by many. Came to town for business matters and needed a place to breathe fresh air and clear my head. This was the place. Looking forward to returning.

Located a little way outside of Little Rock, this was a good way to spend some time on a nice day while our daughter, who we were visiting, was at work. I do not consider it a vacation without a hike. We stsopped at the visitor center to get oriented and pick up a map. The hostess/docent/attendant was friendly and... More

We went on a cold, sunny day. Clear with beautiful views. We went to the visitors center first before hiking and glad we did. Top 1/3 of the peak is climbing up boulders, so if you are not physically relatively fit, you probably should not go all of the way up. It would not be a pretty picture if one... More

We try to climb Pinnacle Mountain's West trail every time we visit Little Rock. It is a challenging hike with great views of the lake and the city. It has been fun to see my children climb this mountain faster and faster over the years.

Great place to go anytime of the year! Views are absolutely beautiful. Arkansas is a beautiful state and Pinnacle Mountain shows off its beauty! You can climb Pinnacle Mountain on the "easy side" or the "hard side". Over this past Thanksgiving holiday a very large group of family and friends climbed the "easy side". They were very impressed. It's a... More

Parking was very difficult, as we went on Labor Day Weekend. The trail was also busy, but that's to be expected. The hike up was very difficult, and definitely a workout. For more seasoned hikers or just generally fit people, it shouldn't be much of an issue. But if you're not used to walking straight uphill for about an hour,... More

You can't beat this beautiful place to see what all Arkansas has to offer! It's right outside of town so it's worth the drive if you are just a visitor! The hike all the way to the top is a workout! But it's all worth it once you get to the top! There is also a base trail around the... More

We have visited often. Great hike up the mountain! Got a geocache state park "Clue" for the 52 park reward.

Pinnacle Mountain is a great place to go hiking. Your trip is rewarded when you get to the top and have great 360 degree views. Do not forget to stop by on the other side of the mountain to visit the Visitors Center.

Husband, dog, and I trekked up for the second time not long ago. Long enough for exercise but not so long to be miserable. Our dog loved it! Beautiful view of the river! There are lots of different trails you can take depending on what you're looking for, or you can stay in the park area to relax, play games,... More
