Got the heart pumping. Great views of the river. Easy hike back down. Robert Dunn (1013) over 1 year ago N/A: 56 Completed 7 Reviews This trail begins with a series of switchbacks leading to some impressive bluffs and great views of the Arkansas River and Pinnacle Mountain. The trail (not the paved walkway) passes through a wonderful forest-like area with a seasonal stream, then continues along a rocky path before connecting with a paved road near the residences on the old VA Hospital grounds. Nice views of downtown Little Rock from the southern end of the trail (where there are several benches to relax before heading back). From there, take same route (or paved walkway) back to starting point OR take switchbacks down to connect with River Trail (multiuse) and return to starting point.
