"Cavanal Hill" (actual name: Cavanal Mountain) is not really 1999 feet tall. The peak has an elevation of 2385 feet above sea level and the peak is 1960 feet above the low point in the area, which is ...the Poteau River 3 miles to the north. The whole "tallest hill in the world" meme is a fraud. I wish the local tourism agencies would quit perpetuati
ng the lie. It is a lovely and scenic mountain and the drive to the top is worth it, but please quit calling it the "world's tallest hill" because that is simply not true.
My wife and I drove up to the top of Cavanal Mountain today 7-16-15 the weather was hot and sunny, you could see forever. I couldn't believe the conditions
of that little turnaround area, picnic table...s and viewing platform. There was trash everywhere , didn't look like it had been mowed in months. First time we'd been up there to see the view. Disappoint ed in the condition it was in. If the city of Poteau wants to promote that as there tourist attraction they need to spend some time cleaning it up.
