Pinnacle Mountain is the second highest point in Arkansas which isn’t saying much because it’s only 1,013 feet above sea level and only 763 feet above the local terrain. But as the highest place around it attracts a lot of people who want to climb to the top which is easily done since a round trip hike up and back is just 1 1/2 mile. The park has eight short hiking trails and two mountain bike trails. Two of the hiking trails are paved. The visitor center has a deck that provides a panoramic view of the Arkansas River valley and a small museum with exhibits on the natural and human history of the area plus a few live reptile exhibits.
The Kingfisher Trail and the Arkansas Trail are paved loops and each is under a mile in length. Both are wide, fairly smooth with gentle slopes, and travel through shady forests. The Kingfisher Trail passes by 500- 600 year old bald cypresses that grow along the Little Maumelle River bank. None of the other trails are accessible. The visitor center is accessible.
