Mount Magazine State Park, a natural “island in the sky,” looms over the Arkansas River Valley, and is home to Signal Hill, the highest point in the state, elevation 2,753 feet.
Magazine is home to magnificent bluffs which make for breathtaking scenery, provide spectacular views, and make it popular for hang gliders and climbers alike. Magazine also offers numerous trails for hiking atop the mountain and into the valley below. It’s now time to enjoy those trails as runners.
Come join us for the 5th Mount Magazine Fun Run. We’ll start just north of the visitor center (see map below), and hit almost every trail in the park, along with a portion of the Cove Lake Trail. The run will be approximately 18 miles, with a trip to the base of the mountain, via the Cove Lake Trail, and back to the top.
For those wishing to participate but not able to do 18 miles, there will be "bail-out" options.Parking is limited. PLEASE carpool where possible!
This is a fun run and there are no entry fees but please register so we know how many to prepare for. Contact PT if you have any questions. Food will be provided after the run. Please carpool if possible, as this will help with parking.
Also, check out the GOOGLE MAP for more details.
Mount Magazine State Park is located on Scenic Highway 309 approximately 17 miles south of Paris; or from Danville, travel nine miles west on Highway 10 to Havana, then go 10 miles north on Scenic Highway 309. Please arrive early enough to check in at Greenfield Pavilion – across the highway from the visitor center.
Many thanks to Mt Magazine State Park, and the Forest Service (Mt Magazine RD) for helping to make this possible.
