I'm 53 and in ok shape. It was an easy loop and well marked. One could combine several trails however and make it longer than a 4.4 loop. North rim has views but not Mossback. We did enjoy the lodge and restaurant too.

Love the views from the Lodge, the trail was nice. Took my time and enjoyed the plants and greenery.

This trail was beautiful and relatively easy - not much elevation gain/loss. Great views, highly recommend this trail!

Super easy trail with a wooded view. Always cool to visit a high point but if you're looking for a good view, check out the balcony at the lodge! Beautiful park though, highly recommend taking the North Rim Trail and connecting to Signal hill then hopping on the Mossback Trail to connect back to the Visitor Center.

Great hike. Saw a Bald Eagle.

Easy.

This is relatively easy trail, which we accessed from the south side near the State Park lodge parking area. There is another trail head on the north end near the Cameron Bluff Camping area.

We did it yesterday! Beautiful scenery!!

Hiked to the overlook on my drive through to Eureka Springs. Nice way to stretch the legs a little on a long drive.

I mapped this 9 mile loop trail that is actually four Mount Magazine trails that form a larger loop trail around the mountain. I started at the visitors center on the North Rim Trail, then picked up on the Mossback Ridge Trail until reaching the Benefield Picnic Area. Then proceeding on the Bear Hollow Trail to the Horse Camp, then picking up Will Apple's Road Trail back to the visitors center. I really like this trail for a number of reasons. Being a state park the trails are well kept and easy to follow. There are great restrooms and refreshments at the visitors center at the beginning and end of the trail. There is also a restroom about about half way along the trail at the Benefield Picnic Area. There are beautiful views, especially along the North Rim Trail and the Bear Hollow Trail. Hunting is not allowed in the park so you feel safe hiking during dear hunting season. Also the lodge and restaurant are a great place to cool down, relax, and get a snack or meal after hiking.

Nice hiking trail with a neat stop at the highest point in Arkansas.

The trail itself isn't bad. The destination is underwhelming, though.

A good hike. A bit challenging for my two young ones but enjoyable.

No view, and the trail maps at the head and summit are less than helpful. To make it a loop, you end up having to walk quite a ways along the road. Consider doing this one out and back unless you are confident about where the loop will take you.

My girlfriend and I hiked this trail a few weeks back. Was quite surprised of how badly the trail was grown up, I would have figured it being such a popular destination that it would have been better taken care of. Otherwise for the larger part it was a great hike with some really nice views. Would definitely hike it again.

The trail starts at the visitor's center, and looks a bit like an overgrown arboretum, but in a good way. the trail path is pretty clear and isn't marked until you cross another trail. Loved the views, moderate hike as some of it is uphill, lots of bees around the flowers.
