Hawksbill Crag


Hawksbill Crag


Hawksbill Crag juts out nearly 150 feet over the surrounding landscape below. Go on an early autumn morning, when the low sun floods the valley and lights up the changing maple, beech, hickory, and ash trees it see one of the most recognized spots in Arkansas. This Hike is often featured as one of the top 10 in america.

To get to the trailhead, head south on Hwy 21 and turn right onto County Road 5, Cave Mountain Road, 1.2 miles past the junction of Hwy 21 & 43. The parking lot is on the right .6 of a mile past the Cave Mountain Church and cemetery. From the parking lot, the trail begins across the road, goes into the woods and drops down the hill to a small stream. After it crosses the stream again, you will notice that the trail runs along private property which is marked with blue and red blazes – do not cross over. There are many science spots along the way but the most spectacular is Hawksbill Crag itself, one of the most major scenic spots in Arkansas.
