The trailhead is located at the back of the Brown Springs picnic/camping area. You can hike the trail out and back, or take the tower road back to the main road. The distance is about the same. Fall and winter months are the best time to hike this trail if you want to see a view. This trail is not on the main hiking map for Mt. Magazine, and it is poorly maintained. An additional map can be acquired at the Visitor Center that will guide you on this trail.

Not a difficult trail, but great views of the valley. The pic that I snapped was one of my favorites!

Loved this trail! We walked out to the towers on the west side of the mountain and watched the sunset. There's a fire tower out there and several nice places to watch the sunset or stars or meteor showers. The best views from the bluffs are on off-site trails that aren't marked, but are visible if you're watching for them.
