Mountain Trail In Arkansas

February 07, 2021

What is the tallest mountain in Arkansas?

Magazine Mountain is the tallest mountain in Arkansas, standing at an impressive 2,753 feet. Rich Mountain isn’t far behind, and sits at 2,680 feet tall.

What mountain ranges run through Arkansas?

There are two distinct mountain ranges in Arkansas, the Ouachitas and the Ozarks. The Ozarks are the largest, and actually holds the title of being the largest between Appalachian Mountain Range in the east, and the Rocky Mountain Range in the west.

What are some scenic hikes in Arkansas?

If seeing the best mountain views in Arkansas sparked some major wanderlust, you’ll be pleased to learn that are some downright scenic hikes in The Wonder State. (In fact, we believe that nine of the absolute prettiest places on earth are right here in Arkansas!) Goat Trail is one of our favorites; you’ll find this scenic hike just outside of Ponca. The Goat Trail leads to jaw-dropping view of Big Bluff overlooking the Buffalo River — but it’s best for more seasoned hikers. The trail is about 6 miles and is not for children or anyone afraid of heights. The ledges along the trail get pretty steep at 350 ft. in the air.
