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.

Nice

Much more impressive than I ever thought it would be. Looks like a nice place to camp as well.

HP #13  Sucess!

This was a really nice highpoint, and I like the granite "picture" of Arkansas on the ground.

Re: HP #13

I actually got up on the rocks and tried to take a pic looking down on that picture in the ground. It turned out okay...

Signal Hill Trail  Sucess!

It was a beautiful day in the morning and it was pleasant hearing all the Ovenbirds calling in the foilage. Flat on top but they sure let you know you are there. Hiked it with my wife.

Fog for me too  Sucess!

Foggiest drive up the mountain I've ever endured. It was cool and windy, and I just parked at the little trailhead leading directly to the top, due to the foul weather. Nice benches and signs at the top, though. I just wish I could have seen further than 50 feet in front of my face.

Fog and Rain  Sucess!

We hiked from the lodge to the highpoint in a dense fog, then continued along the Mossback Ridge, Bear Hollow, Will Apple's Road, and North Rim Trails. The fog never lifted, so we missed out on the views, and even had difficulty locating one of the trailheads. We crawled into the tents at the beginning of a thunderstorm that raged all night, and got soaked trying to pack up in the morning. HP #5

First Highpoint  Sucess!

A great place to start. Seven of us drove up, then hiked the last bit to the top. Cool, foggy day with lots of low, swirling clouds.

Trail-Running After A Blizzard...  Sucess!

A winter blizzard had struck Mount Magazine prior to my arrival, but only cold dense fog remained during my visit. I spent the afternoon trail-running (in the snow!!!) along the Signal Hill Trail, Benefield Trails, Bear Hollow Trail, Greenfield Trail, and Mossback Ridge Trail. Some park visitors looked at me like I was crazy trying to reach the Signal Hill highpoint during those winter conditions, but such are the ways of a highpointer!!!
