"This short hike takes you to one of the most photographed scenes in Arkansas. Hawksbill Crag overlooks the Whitaker Creek drainage and is sometimes referred to as Whitaker Point. The whole trail is a visual treat, especially all along the blufflines, with several interesting rock formations and a small waterfall, not to mention the famous Hawksbill Crag." Read more
