This was really quick drive up to see the views. It was so worth it. We didn't take the trails, but there are plenty to pick from. It doesn't cost anything to see the beauty.

Drove up to Pinnacle State Park and really enjoyed the stunning view of the surrounding countryside and Arkansas river. The roads were in excellent condition and the facilities were in top notch condition. Worth a quick trip for the view alone.

If you are interested in some of the best views possible climb Pinnacle! Be warned it can be quite a challenge, especially in the summer. However, getting to the top is worth it.
