South of Ponca, Ark, on hwy 21, go past hwy 43 intersection 1.2 miles, turn west on a gravel rd, just before you cross the bridge, the road takes you straight up the mountain side, go about 5.5 miles to country church, proceed another .5 miles and you will see the parking on the right side of the road and the trailhead on the left side.
The trail's destination is the "Crag", a rock formation that juts out from the bluff's face that resembles a hawk's beak. It overlooks Whitaker Creek and a huge valley stretching for a long distance. but this is not all, in the spring and fall rainy season you can discover a number of waterfalls.
