Cavanal Hill is dubbed “The World’s Highest Hill”, but there’s a lot more to it than just that. The trail leading up to Cavanal Hill follows the old railroad line that ran to Witteville. From there, there was an old route that ran to the top where Walter Beard’s summer resort once was. All dating back to the late 1800’s. Today, there’s a large observation platform and park at the top of the hill. It remains one of the most beautiful places in Poteau.
