   Scenic Highway 7, the state's designated scenic byway, follows all the ups and downs of northwest Arkansas from the towns of Harrison to Hot Springs. The 300 mile scenic byway crosses the Buffalo and Arkansas There is more than one Pedestal Rock rivers, through two national forests and passes by a dozen natural wonders. Deep in the Ozark National Forest and not far from the town of Pelsor, visitors are treated to a spectacular Arkansas River Valley and a group of geological wonders ... the Pedestal Rocks.
   The Ozarks National Forest's Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area may be explored by way of two hiking trails. The King's Bluff Loop, just Arch Rock - Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area, Pelsor, Arkansas under two miles, leads out to majestic valley views and the King's Bluff waterfall. This seasonal waterfall is one of the tallest in the Ozarks, and waterfall fans will fully understand the term "seasonal." The Pedestal Rocks Trail leads along a line of sandstone cliffs, the Pedestal Rocks and natural wonder known as Arch Rock. These stone carvings, shaped by centuries of erosion, are found along the cliff edges. A cautious approach is recommended as only a few hand-rail restraints are in place. The return trail of the loop, crossing through a hardwood forest and is much better defined than the route along the cliffs.
