About Flatside Pinnacle

Located just outside the Flatside Wilderness, and located along the Ouachita National Recreation Trail, the Flatside Pinnacle is a 1,550 mountain peak/rock outcrop that, when you climb to the top via a short but steep trail, offers one of the best sunset views in the enitre Ouachita Mountains.

From the top, views span all the way across the Flatside Wilderness, offering sights such as Forked Mountain and White Oak Mountain, which is the tallest peak within the Flatside Wilderness. The forested ridges and valleys seem unbroken all the way towards to horizon, and the fall colors from up here can be absoultely spectacular. Spring time also offers an abundance of wildflowers, and offers the best chance for exploring nearby waterfalls as well.
