There are two ways to get to the top of pinnacle: the hard way, and the extra hard way. Both are great, the hard way starts in the park and the extra hard way is around the other side of the mountain. I like to take the really difficult way, it offers more views and feels more rewarding getting to... More

We heard good things about the trails, and wanted to climb the mountain but didn't know where to start. We went to the welcome center and a very nice gentleman greeted us. I said we hadn't been there before and he gave us both a pinnacle mountain pin that we immediately put on. We looked at all the neat things,... More

Two trails up the mountain... One requires a great deal of climbing towards the top. Great view once you make it to the top.

Myself and a friend of mine was in town for a two week school so through word of mouth we decided to hit the peak up one afternoon. Everyone we met was super friendly. Absolutly enjoyed the hike up. We left with a story of adventure I can bring back to N.Carolina! This is a great place to rip the... More

We enjoyed this day trip very much. Although we did not make it to the top we had a great time trying. We are not the hiking type and went just to have time together. Would say, wear cool clothes it was warm once we started. Bring water to drink as well.

Make sure you wear shoes with great traction and ankle support. The trail is very rocky and steep but rewarding.

We love going to Pinnacle Mountain because it is literally right outside the city limits of Little Rock. There is so much to do here from hiking to canoeing to paddle boats, to picnicking to biking to horseback riding to walking The Arboretum Trail or the Observation Deck or climbing to the peak (easy side or difficult) of Pinnacle Mountain....

Just a short drive from little rock this tiny mountain offers well marked trails and great views. Around the base are picnic and fishing areas great for a family day.

We rode our bikes around Pinnacle State Park in May. We highly recommend the overlook which offers a great view of the Arkansas river and quite a few birds. The bicycle trails from downtown Little Rock make this a very easy to reach destination from downtown (a 16 mile round trip). An absolute must with kids in tow!

This is a regular stop for us on weekends. The summit trails are always nice, but I recommend trying some of the other trails. Drive past the main entrance to the park until you get to the first road on the right. Go down that road a little way and you will get to the park visitor center. You should... More
