Find Your Peak

Are you afraid of heights? If you answered “no,” Arkansas State Parks offer rock climbing adventures for beginners and advance climbers. Experienced rock climbers can rappel and rock climb on the south bluff of 2,753-foot Mount Magazine, Arkansas's highest mountain (which also offers camping and cabins). You can test your technical climbing skills on the 1,011-foot southern side of Pinnacle Mountain, just miles from Little Rock. Or you can find high-flying fun in other places: how about a wild state-of-the-art treetop adventure rope course at The Ozark Folk Center in northern Arkansas.
