Beautiful spring hike  Sucess!

Lovely, windy, cool spring day. Arkansas, your high point was surprisingly lovely and covered in wildflowers.

I disagree that it's overdeveloped; I'm glad to see some high points accessible to people of many abilities.

HP #31  Sucess!

Best of the 4 state HPs my son, Lance and I've done this week. Beautiful State Park with nice amenities. My first time in Arkansas and I wasn't disappointed.

#7  Sucess!

Nice hike, but the state park is too developed. A generator at a nearby lodge could be heard for a significant portion of the stretch near the top. The longer ascent trails are a better alternative.

HP #6  Sucess!

Woke up in Little Rock to an ice storm. Ice covered roads greeted us on our way up the mountain. We were the only ones on the mountain. Ran up the mountain in an ice storm. Took a couple pics, tried to sign the book, but it was frozen shut. Great hike. No views because of the storm, but it was awesome.

Very pretty area of Arkansas! HP'd with husband and kids. Pleasantly surprised by the beauty of this climb.

HP #5  Sucess!

First stop on a five state trip. When I got there, the campground was full so I had to spend the night in my truck at the lodge parking lot. I woke to a rainy morning which made the hike to Signal Hill fun. Not much to see from the summit, but some good views from the drive off the mountain.

20th high point!  Sucess!

A great day for a great short hike! It was very cold that night. I camped really close to the summit.

The long way up...  Sucess!

To add a bit more to the "climb", we started at the lodge, over to Mossback Ridge trail, connecting to Bear Hollow (nice views at Sunrise rock)..over to Will's Apple Road trail with a short descent to check out Buckman's pool)...short stop to "refuel" at the visitor's center (I don't recommend the coffee in the machine---more like brown colored water)....onto North Rim Trail (and the best part in my opinion)...then finally up Signal Hill (I agree the map marker up there is cool) and back down the opposite way to the lodge. State #6!

HP #17  Sucess!

Really pretty place to camp and a great time to visit. The Fall foliage was beautiful and the Arkansas map summit marker is kinda' cool too.

HP #3  Sucess!

State high point #3 for me. Beautiful fall colors and weather, but no views on the actual summit. Awesome views from the lookouts. The hang gliders were pretty cool!

HP # 8  Sucess!

Reached the top of the Ozarks! woohoo. Very easy hike but I really enjoy exploring in the Ozarks and especially reaching state HP # 8. On to the other southern HPs.

My First Mountain!  Sucess!

Dad carried me up. It was a nice sunny, breezy day. There were lots of pretty butterflies. I slept a little bit. I spit up too.

SHP #8 - in 1986  Sucess!

My daughter Vanessa and I hiked to the highpoint after climbing the unmanned fire tower nearby. This was early in our highpoints quest, which I recently concluded at #49 .

yo  Sucess!

Another fairly silly state highpoint. While the "mountain" has some interesting cliffs, to get to the top you pretty much drive up and stroll through the woods to a clearing there....hmmm I don't mean to sound like a snob, but really people, I guess it's a good day in the woods, stop and sit on the cliffs and enjoy the view of the valley on the way up.

Perfect Day Hike  Sucess!

Drove down from Kansas to visit my 50th state and climb my 23rd highpoint. It was also my first peak with my 2 month old daughter! Nice trail (North Rim), warm breeze, several species of butterflies - it was truly a great day.

Magazine Mountain  Sucess!

Drove up the mountain and hiked the short trail to the summit. Another pretty wooded park in the Ozark National Forest. HP #37.
