Description: At 2,753 feet, Mount Magazine is Arkansas’s highest mountain. Signal Hill and the Greenfield and East End picnic areas are near the summit of this plateau-like mountain. From Cameron Bluff, the trail winds down the mountain to a broad bench where virgin oak, gum and ash are found. This trail is listed in both the day and overnight hiking sections due to the versatility offered by the variety of access points, distances, and terrain. This is truly a unique mountain setting, offering some of the most expansive views in Arkansas. Download trail map here.
