Description

Added by Nick Garcia

This amazing hike getaway is only 25 minutes from the center of Little Rock, making it a great place to get away and be in nature.

The East Summit trail is a 1.5 out and back that reaches a final elevation of 1,011ft. The trailhead is in the southeast corner of the East Summit Parking Lot on Pinnacle Valley Road. Walk about 10 yards down the trail to the junction, take the right fork and follow the RED and WHITE blazes. This is the more rugged 3/4-mile ascent to the summit of Pinnacle Mountain and requires crossing several boulder fields.

Reviews

Don't let the short distance fool you--this hike is legit hard! It's more of a climb/scramble than a hike. It was New Years Day when I visited and the summit was enveloped in fog. Even without the view, it was an awesome experience I was not expecting.

Dig those boulder fields. Hike in from the Visitor Center, go down the west side. Go for a stroll around the base.
