Dardanelle Rock has been a major landmark along the Arkansas River since the days of early Arkansas exploration. The "Legend of Dardanelle Rock" tells the story of a Cherokee Indian chief, who was wounded in a fierce battle. While recuperating he fell in love with a beautiful maiden. They made a pact. He was to stand on Dardanelle Rock at sunset and she would wave to him as a signal that she would run away with him and become his bride. He waited on the rock for many hours, but for some reason she failed to show. So, he flung himself into the turbulent stream of the Arkansas River below. Dardanelle Rock is located on Dardanelle Dam Road. More information on the rock can be found at Dardanelle Rock Natural Area (arkansasheritage.com) If you are looking for more information on hikes in the Natural State go to TAKAHIK River Valley Hikers
