Garland County High Point Trip Report

Ouachita Pinnacle on Hamilton quadrangle

Author: Hans Haustein

Ouachita Pinnacle is located in the north central part of Garland County. To reach it, go about seven miles south of Hollis on State Highway 7 then turn west on National Forest Road (NFR) 11 and travel about six miles. Turn south on NFR J60 and travel southwest for about one mile crossing the North Fork of the Ouachita River. At this point NFR J60 heads south for about 3.5 miles and continues to the summit of Ouachita Pinnacle. There are several radio towers on the summit.

The highpoint is within a fenced area that surrounds the base of the former fire tower. This area probably has been disturbed but about 45 yards to the east is an area beside a rock wall that is natural. There are great views of Lake Ouachita and Ouachita National Forest to the south. The entire summit area is clear.
