This is a stunning 3 mile round trip hike that leads to the most photographed, and quite honestly the most beautiful spot in all of Arkansas.

This is one of the most popular hiking spots in all of Arkansas. However, doing the hike early in the morning provides one of the best places of all time to watch a sunrise. You begin at the trail marker which is straight across from the parking area and marked by a larger bolder with carvings in it. The trail is a slight downhill hike almost the entire way to the point. This trial is very clearly marked and is well maintained due to the high number of visitors that come to this spot each year. The trail follows the bluff line all the way to the point providing some great photographing spots along the way. Please be very careful around this area! Once you reach the point, take the time to sit and enjoy the beauty of the sunrise as the valley below fills with clouds.

Amazing Views

Easy hike to the point. Amazing ozark view. Family hike, kids 10 and up. Typically very crowded trail, not much room to park if really busy.

Great Sunrise

Great spot to catch a sunrise (or sunset) we showed up at 6am and made it to the crag at about 6:45, luckily we were the only ones there but plenty of people showed up afterwards. The crag is awesome, but I thought the best spots were some overlooks where you can see the crag over the bluffs. Either way its a great spot for a day hike. Trail isn't strenuous at all.

beautiful views

About an hour hike to get up to the main crag. Absolutely beautiful lookout point.
