Swimming, canoeing, hiking, and extraordinary views await. Set atop 2,681-foot Rich Mountain, Arkansas’s second highest peak, Queen Wilhelmina Lodge is the focal point. Named after their queen, investors from Netherlands built a wonderful lodge here in the hope she would visit, but sadly that visit never occurred. Today the lodge is referred to as the “Castle in the Sky” and you can enjoy its spectacular panoramic vistas of Rich Mountain. A few hiking trails leave from the lodge. Take the 1.3-mile Lovers’ Leap Trail for its sweeping panorama of the Ouachita National Forest.
