“This trail leads to one of the most scenic lookout points in Arkansas, which many say looks like a hawk's bill.”— Missouri Hiker
The trail straight forward and marked regularly with orange-triangle blazes. Enjoy the view, but please mind the cliffs. The drop off is steep and several individuals have fallen to their death here. For bonus points, get here before sunrise and see the fog lift around the point.
Trivia - this place was featured in the Disney movie Tuck Everlasting.
