Pinnacle Mountain -  Roland, Arkansas

Photos by Ben Prepelka

     A natural landmark for centuries, Pinnacle Mountain is located in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains just west of Little Rock. Pinnacle Mountain - East Quarry Trail Overlook A popular state park for hiking and picnicking, the cone shape peak attracts a lot of attention. The east and west summit trails offer different routes to the top, but both measure about a mile and a half.
     The 2356 acre park is located on a transition zone between the bottomlands of the Arkansas River and the Fulk Mountains. A series of trails are woven through the parkland, inviting visitors to explore various park habitats. Two biking trails, recently developed in Pinnacle Mountain State Park, offer over eight miles of single track, mountain biking adventure. The Rabbit Ridge Trail offers beginners a chance to develop Pinnacle Mountain - Quarry Pond mountain biking skills with a ridge-top viewpoint for parents to keep an eye on young riders. The Jack Fork Trail will challenge both intermediate and advanced riders over its 6.5 mile course.
     Six old quarry sites are located within the park boundary. A quarry pond, located near the visitor center makes for a great little paddle pond for a family to enjoy the blue-green water. Strictly a day-use park, gates are advertised to close one hour after sundown.
