The park itself is named after James Miller, a brigadier in the army who became the first Governor of Arkansas Territory. Although hiking and climbing are the main activities here, there is plenty to do and see in the surrounding areas, with various other scenic landscapes go explore and towns such as Manchester Nashua, and Concord.
