Views! Yes, Great Views!
This trail section comes close to rivaling the Bear Hollow Trail area, with it's amble along the edge of the cliff edges overlooking the valley far below. Starting just west of the visitor center, this trail follows the north rim of the mountain to Cameron Bluff Overlook Drive, then on another half mile to terminate behind the campground area, where it connects with the Cove Lake Trail.
It leads through hardwood forests, scrub oaks, and cedar glades across several tumbling creeks. Windswept bluffs overlooking a rugged hollow, the Arkansas River Valley and the Ozark Plateau are just a few of the views along this trail section.
A spur connects with the western end of the Mossback Ridge Trail to create a 4.4-mile loop back to the visitor center, shortcutting off of Mossback trail on Greenfield Trail.
You can add on the state high point, Signal Hill, by walking up through the campground, connecting with the Signal Hill trail at the campground entry point... and, dropping off the other side of Signal Hill, enjoy the various services available at the Lodge.
