Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area Professional Review and Guide

"This hike packs a load of beauty into just under 4 miles. The Pedestal Rocks Scenic Area is a special place and a must-see destination in the Arkansas Ozarks. You’ll see the sculpting of water over time as you view pedestals, arches, and towering bluffs from the trail. Be sure to bring your camera, but don’t be surprised if your lens isn’t wide enough to capture the size of some of the pedestals from top to bottom.

This is a well-built trail following an old roadbed with drainage cuts to avoid washouts. You’ll see some nice stone steps along this section as you gradually descend toward the bluffs with a few slight climbs along the way. This first stretch gives you a nice warm-up hike before reaching the scenic areas."
