Arkansas High Point - Mount Magazine
Photos & Video Of My Visit To Mt. Magazine State Park Near Paris, Arkansas - November 9, 2009
|Signal Hill at Magazine Mountain - The Arkansas High Point
Although maps call it Magazine Mountain, the term "Mt. Magazine"
is what seems to be most commonly
used as the name of the Arkansas high point. Magazine Mountain spans horizontally across
west central Arkansas, and Signal Hill is the highest point
on this mountain at 2,753 feet in elevation.
The entrance and visitor center of Mt. Magazine State Park is
located on Highway 309 between Paris, AR and Havana, AR.
It is a short hike in the woods -- only 0.4 miles from the parking lot --
to reach to Signal Hill.
There are benches for
people to sit and enjoy the scenery, and a concrete monument
that's shaped like the state of Arkansas.
This visit was the finale of my 4-day trip to Arkansas to hike,
see old and new friends, attend a Razorbacks football game and get
away for awhile. My two pages from this visit:
Buffalo National River and
Arkansas Razorbacks Football Game.

The high point is covered with tall trees that block the views
out yonder, but don't worry, there are plenty of ridges and bluffs
in other areas of the park. Less than a mile from Signal
Hill is Cameron Bluff Overlook, where the photo above was taken.

This is called an Arkansas Razorback Smasher which I bought at Hog Heaven,
a store dedicated to Razorbacks gear in Rogers. :)
