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!!!

Very cool location  Sucess!

We enjoyed the nice location and the cool Arkansas map they were building on the summit.

My First Summit  Sucess!

Sunny day, temps in the high 80's. Hiked the 7 mile loop from the visitor center to the summit and back. Had a bear encounter near the end. Didn't see it, but could hear it huffing in the very near distance. Even though this wasn't a difficult climb, I totally enjoyed it. It was my first highpoint and it got me hooked on a sport that I didn't even know existed.

Wandered around semi-lost before I eventually found the right trail. Pleasant enough.

Short Hike  Sucess!

Took the .5 mile trail from the campground due to a recently sprained ankle. Nice day and got some nice views at the park, although there were no views from the summit. Highpoint #10.
