Pilots Knob Bluffs In Batavia, Arkansas

Published on March 17, 2015 by in News

Pilot Knob 6      Pilot Knob 5      Pilot Knob 4      Pilot Knob 3      Pilot Knob 2      Pilot Knob 1

Even though these photos are older, these bluffs actually still exist! If you drive up Pilots Knob Road you can see the nice pretty view it provides. Pilots Knob is located in Batavia, Arkansas, just off of Capps Road (hwy 392) north of Harrison, Arkansas, across from the Phillips Tax Office. After a snow storm you may not want to drive up this road though because it’s a steep dirt road, but when you can make it’s very pretty! At the very top of the road you’ll see a cattle field now, and it’s ok to go over the fence into the cattle field. but at the end is the bluffs to hike up. You are in for a treat when you get to the top!
