  • We visited the park on a busy Saturday afternoon. I was surprised at how many people, young and old were climbing the trail to the top of Pinnacle Mountain. The trail is very steep and rocky, wear goo...  more »

  • Pinnacle is a beautiful park very close to Little Rock. Its city proximity makes it very popular, in fact crowded, on the weekend we were there. No parking was available in the first parking lot becau...  more »

  • Lovely view. The trails were easy to follow with markings on the trees. However, I think you need more than a day to spend here if you plan on walking the trails and get to the actual pinnacle mountain. When I went, I walked the middle level (moderate) trail and it took 2 hrs mainly because I was taking pictures too. But I didn't actually get to hike up v the mountain because I was exhausted after the trail
  • There are many trails here (not just the trail to the top) to explore. I've been on several with different levels of amusement. The arboretum provided a lot of good information about native plants/trees in different areas of Arkansas. It was interesting to see the different types and an easy walk after a long hike (also, it was paved and probably accessible by wheelchair).
  • Took the family there on mothers day this year. The kids had a great time. I enjoyed it as well. Brought our lunch so we could eat before we went and climbed the mountain. We didn't make it all the way to the top but when you're trying to keep up with 4 kids lol but overall it was a great day.
  • The view from the top is so beautiful. You can look out over the lake, over the river, so relaxing. Getting up there takes some work, it's quite a steep climb.
  • Wow the view!!!!! The summit trails are where it's at if you are looking for a great workout and such a wild terrain. On the east side you literally climb up boulders and it's fun! The west side is easier, super dog friendly and is nestled up the mountains in the woods. However, don't let the east sides climbing keep you away, I've seen everything from kids to puppies trekking on up, with help of course :). This park offers so many other trails, mountain bike courses, a quarry with paddle boats, and a really neat nature center that is full of informative info about the park as well as a baby gator, a working bee hive, and other cool critters. Get outside and explore the beauty Little Rock has to offer. It's so worth it!
