Hike the Pinnacle Mountain East Summit Trail
Arkansas › Pinnacle Mountain East Summit Trailhead
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.
- Hiking Boots or Tight fitted shoes
- Plenty of water
- Camera (great views)
