Enjoyable moderate hike from the Western trailhead. This is not a strenuous hike as some indicate, it is actually very well maintained with steps (natural stone) for the first half of the hike. The view from the summit is beautiful. Nobody should need the two hours they recommend to do this hike, if it takes someone this long they probably... More

Bring a camera, bring your friends and go horseback riding. It's a beautiful trail and a lot of fun. They do have certain weight restrictions when riding the horses. They also have helmets for the little ones.

We have been to Pinnacle Mtn State Park at various times. On our first visit, we hiked the Arboretum trail to learn about the vegetation growing in various regions of Arkansas. The trail was paved, trees and plants were accurately described and we had fun with our 5 yr old grandson, who was very intrigued by all of the trees!... More

Always hit Pinnacle on the first warm day in spring. Mountain has two sides, hard and not as hard. Take water as there is nothing on mtn. Great field and paths for those not wanting to climb.

We only had time to hike the mountain. We trekked up the west trail, the "easier" side. It is a series of rock stair steps that never end until you get to the last 1/5 of the hike and you have to navigate a series of boulders. The trail is well marked with yellow paint. We had a nice afternoon... More

I enjoyed several hours at Pinnacle Mountain State Park. I hiked to the summit up the East Trail, the more difficult side, which is about 1.5 miles with 700 feet of elevation gain. The East trail is primarily a rock slide, with little shade in stretches. The trail is well marked. I broke a sweat, but primarily due to heat.... More

Pinnacle Mountain State Park was just a 20 minute drive from our bed and breakfast in Little Rock, and with several easily accessible, beautify easy and moderate hikes, it was perfect for early morning trips! We especially loved the arboretum walk with its many offshoot trail options and great signage!

While it's a staple trail of LR, you need to know you have choices. You can go up the easy side or the hard side. The East summit is straight up and over rocks. You must be nimble and unafraid of heights to take this on.

The east side ascent is by far the harder, more rewarding route. The tumbled cascade of rocks is challenging, not technically hard, but you'll want good shoes/boots and to pick your way carefully. You'll be rewarded with a strenuous climb, a nice view, and far fewer people than on the easier western ascent.
