Hike the Pinnacle Mountain West Summit Trail
Arkansas › Pinnacle Mountain State Park West Summit Trailhead
Added by Nick Garcia
Only 25 minutes from downtown Little Rock, Pinnacle Mountain State Park has over 20 miles of trails ranging from easy to difficult. The views from the top of the mountain are breathtaking!
This rocky trail begins at the park picnic grounds and winds its way to the top of Pinnacle Mountain. From the top is a spectacular view of Lake Maumelle, the Arkansas River Valley, the Ouachita Mountains and west Little Rock. This is truly a breathtaking view. To return, you must retrace your steps or hike down the rugged East Summit Trail and return via the base trail for a total hike of 2 1/2 miles.
