It’s pretty just not much to do or see. You walk down a paved trail and look over a cliff to see the Ouachita River.

The overlook is great with a height of about 100 feet off the river and you can see a historical bridge where the railroad use to run through the local area.

This is an easy walk on a gentle asphalt trail. It is well shaded. Round trip back to the parking lot can probably be done in just 5-10 minutes. The high point (literally) is a tall bluff overlooking the Ouachita River.

If you have 20-30 minutes or more and want to enjoy a beautiful view of the Ouachita River than this is a must stop/must see. Absolutely gorgeous views year round.

This trail is a short, easy walk, perfect for families with little kids. Once you reach the bluff, the view is absolutely breathtaking! There is a small area off to the side with benches, and there are a few trails that branch off from there....More
