Pinnacle Mountain State Park

Enjoy a day of outdoor recreation with a relaxing afternoon picnic, a challenging mountain climb or a bike ride through the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains.

Pinnacle Mountain State Park is an impressive day-use park dedicated to environmental preservation, education and recreation. Whether you are seeking quiet contemplation away from the bustling city or an exciting adventure for the whole family, the 2,360 acres (955 hectares) of parkland will meet your needs. Immerse yourself in the beautiful natural surroundings and learn about Arkansas’ diverse animal and plant life.

Before entering the park, explore the visitor center overlooking the Arkansas River. Learn about the park’s diverse plants and animals through interactive exhibits, brochures and a wildlife viewing area.

Choose from more than 40 miles (60 kilometers) of hiking trails, which are well signposted and conveniently divided into easy, modern and strenuous routes to help plan your trip. If you feel energetic, try one of the summit trails leading to the top of Pinnacle Mountain. With an elevation of 1,011 feet (308 meters), the mountain peak offers glorious panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. A more leisurely option is the paved and barrier-free Kingfisher Trail, which will lead you through meandering, atmospheric flood plains.

Guided horseback rides through the park are also available. These trips are suitable for both novice and experienced riders. Tours are available daily and should be booked in advance during summer months.  

Take a short walk to the Arkansas Arboretum, which consists of 71 acres (29 hectares) of parkland containing shrubs and trees from all regions of Arkansas. Informational signs with recorded messages are located around the arboretum to introduce the state’s trees and its natural and geological history. Make an appointment for a guided tour.

Pinnacle Mountain State Park and the accompanying visitor center are open daily and have no admission fee. The park is 20 miles (32 kilometers) west of Little Rock’s city center, accessible by car and public bus. Note that camping is not available. Park gates are closed about 1 hour after sunset. Find restrooms in the visitor center, at the Arkansas Arboretum and at the West Summit Picnic area.
