Little Rock, AR: Black Fork Mountain

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 5.7 miles


Hike, camp, and tag a summit with shutterbug views on this 11.4-miler in the Ouachita Mountains and the Black Fork Mountain Wilderness.
  • Trailhead
  • Creek Crossing
  • Twisted Trees
  • Chimney
  • Summit Views

From the parking lot, head 250 feet down a connector trail and turn left at the 3-way junction onto the Ouachita Trail. Descend to Big Creek before beginning a steady ascent. Turn left onto the Black Fork Trail and wind through short leaf pine intermixed with hardwoods. Climb past two backcountry campsites. Just before the summit, the trail passes the ghostly remains of a weathered chimney. On rocky top of Black Fork Mountain (2,600 ft.),  take in sweeping views of the Ouachita Mountains and surrounding valleys. To return, simply retrace the trail back to the parking lot.
