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.

Beautiful trail with SO many scenic offshoots. Stop at the visitor center for a printed explanation on how to get to the scenery off the trail since most aren't marked. If going after a good rain wear waterproof boots to get through the flooded bits of trail or long pants to get around through the light brush.

I absolutely loved this trail. This trail has many side trails connected to it. It is totally worth it to go down every side trail. If you never get off the main trail you will never see anything scenic.

Loved the trail and all the little side trails! Took us a while to find (and get to) the Needles Eye, but we never found the Window. We'll try again after the leaves fall. Highly recommend... get a map from the visitors center that shows all the different points on the trail ☺ Enjoy!

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.
