Cavanal sign. Monument Atop the World's Highest Hill

Nice picnic area. Beautiful drive. Would have been a nice view if it wasn't so cloudy.

[Nancy, 04/15/2014]

Weather can be quite unpredictable at 1,999 feet. You may find the picnic tables clammy with humidity or baking in a sun unshielded by normal sea level atmosphere. Some travelers have been known to acclimate en route at the 500 ft. level, while buying gas and snacks.

Cavanal - World's Highest Hill marker. World's Highest Hill

There is a monument that is placed at the top of Cavanal. The view from the World's Highest Hill of the Poteau River Valley is so beautiful! A great place to bring your family.

My hometown's claim to fame is Cavanal Hill! It is Officially "The World's Highest Hill." At 1,999 feet, it is only one foot from being a Mountain!

There is a Rock Marker at the top of the hill.
