One of the more fun attractions in Eureka Springs has been around for so long that it has attained historic status – as an attraction!

Pivot Rock is one of several unique natural formations at Pivot Rock Park, located on Pivot Rock Road off Highway 62 West in Eureka Springs.

First developed as a tourist attraction more than 100 years ago, the park features paved pathways winding through unique rock formations and the beautiful natural
mountain scenery of the Ozarks. According to legend, however, the deep ravines and caves of the park attracted a different kind of visitor during the years after the Civil War. Tradition holds that this was one of the many hideouts of the outlaw Jesse James and the James-Younger Gang, the notorious band of Old West train and bank robbers.

To be honest, many places in the Ozarks make such Jesse James claims, but the gang was definitely active in this area and the legend is a solid part of local folklore.

Pivot Rock, the unique formation that gives the park its name, was colorfully described by an Arkansas writer in 1935 as, “a top balanced on its pointed end.”  The formation is about twice the height of an average person and the old description is fairly accurate. It has been featured in Ripley’s Believe It or Not and generations of visitors to Eureka Springs have been photographed standing beneath it.

It addition to its namesake formation, Pivot Rock Park also includes a very pretty little natural bridge, steep bluffs, ravines and small caves.

A fee is charged for visiting the park, which is open during the spring, summer and fall months. Other features include a picnic area, country store and a display of antique farm equipment. The park is particularly beautiful during the spring blooming and fall leaf change seasons.

One bit of advice, the walk out the paved trail to Pivot Rock is a bit strenuous, so take your health into consideration before you make the attempt. Also, for some reason some visitors find the park a little hard to find, so -as the signs say – just make sure you follow Pivot Rock Road ALL the way to the end. The park is at 1708 Pivot Rock Road.
