Spend the afternoon at one of Arkansas' prettiest spots. Rising more than 1,000 feet above the Arkansas River Valley, the cone-shaped peak of Pinnacle Mountain is a central Arkansas landmark. Once up top (a fairly easy hike up the western slope at a slow pace), the scenery can't be beat. Besides the more than 40 miles of hiking trails, there are also the Arkansas Arboretum, a playground and plenty of picnic tables.
Pinnacle Mountain State Park also features two of the area's most popular mountain biking trails, Rabbit Ridge and the Jackfork trail. Rabbit Ridge is excellent for a quick ride or for new riders and children. The Jackfork trail is ideal for moderate to advanced riders because of the switchbacks, roots, rocks and steep ascents and descents.
