Pinnacle Mountain, located near Little Rock (Pulaski County), rises more than 1,000 feet above the Arkansas River Valley. The cone-shaped peak has long been a landmark in the central part of the state. Since 1977, the mountain has been a part of Pinnacle Mountain State Park, the first state park adjoining a major metropolitan area. The park is home to many hiking trails, two of which venture to the summit of the mountain.
