“Really spectacular views!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

What spectacular views we saw! LOTS of hair pin turns and even saw some snow still accumulated on the ground! Nothing blooming just yet, but, in about a month, this will be fabulous!

“Beautiful colors in nice rolling hills of the Ozarks”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

The colors of the leaves were just turning and made for beautiful scenery. The scenic byway, Highway 7 was a most delightful day adventure across northern AR.

“Serene, Shaded Trail to Pedestal Rock”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

This was worth a short 6 mile drive east on Hwy 16 during our trip from Clarksville to Branson on scenic Hwy 7.

The 2.2 mile RT walk to see the rocks and caves under them was enjoyable. The trees were just starting to show color, so end of Oct or early Nov are probably ideal for optimal fall colors. We couldn't find a way to get down below the bluffs to access the trail and caves below, but it was still a nice respite on a mid October day. Watch out for poison ivy along the trail.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

My absolute favorite place in the world.
A must see in the fall when the leaves are changing.
Or, a drive to Ponca to see the Elk and stay in a unique cabin in a cave is also a must. Great fishing too!

“Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

The scenic area consists of 2 hiking trails Pedestal Rocks (2.2 mi) and Kings Bluff (1.7 mi). Regardless of your hiking skills, it's worth the trip. You will see unique formations, called pedestals that were formed by weathering. Kings Bluff features a waterfall that flows over the ledge. The trail is located at the top of the Illinois Bayou River Drainage and offers great views and a history lesson in Arkansas geology.

At I-40 & 7 go north about 38 miles, Right onto Arkansas 16 for 6 miles. Sign for trailhead is on your right and there is a vault toilet.
