A Hiker's Haven

Escape the day to day to enjoy an adventure on Arkansas's Highest Point!

Mount Magazine State Park is home to a variety of trails, and April is a great time for exploring them!
Leaves are slowly emerging on tree branches, adding color to the forest canopy. Wild flowers are blooming, waterfalls are flowing, and wildlife is more active.

Beginners can stroll trails with excellent vistas, like the East & West Benefield Loops. Scenic overlooks combine with easy walking and a touch of history to help make the Benefield trails a favorite of many.

For a slightly longer hike with more diverse terrain, hikers should check out the North Rim trail. Two of the more famous park waterfalls, School Creek Falls and Magazine Falls can be found just off of the North Rim trail. In April, spiderwort, crested irises, and violets begin to bloom along the trail.

Longer trails are available such as the Bear Hollow trail, winding through stretches of virgin timber. For people who prefer wheels we have Will Apple Road trail, which allows bicycles, and the Huckleberry Mountain trail that allows ATVs and dirt bikes. For more information on individual trails, visit the trail portion of our website or check out the attached trail map.

After a hiking adventure, unwind with delicious food and breath taking views in the Skycrest Restaurant. Escape for the night in a king room for relaxing in a spa tub or book a cabin to enjoy a hot tub on a private deck. We also have hiking vacation packages available that include a souvenir hiking medallion and free shuttle service.

Spring Open House:

Celebrate spring with the park’s volunteer organization, the Mount Magazine Action Group (MtMAG).

Enjoy light refreshments, a friendly atmosphere, garden tours, book signings and discover volunteer opportunities with members.

Participate in a “cash and carry” fundraiser to raise funds for the group’s activities that support the park’s educational programs such as the annual Butterfly Festival. Items up for sale include hand knitted scarves, jewelry, herbed vinegar, plants, gardening, goodies, and more. Cash or check only accepted.

We are also raffling off a child’s butterfly quilt (tickets $1 each, or $5 for 6) and a one night stay in the lodge in a queen standard room (tickets $10 each). Tickets may be purchased during the open house. Drawing is at 1:30 p.m. that day.

My folks, both in their 80s drove up there last week for lunch at the Skycrest and had a great time. They skipped the hiking trails I had told them be careful folks fall off those mountain trails and die, mom says at their age they can live dangerously :happy0035: they got a Double indemnity clause with their life insurance :poundfloor: I told her then by all means ...hike
