Hey guys just wanted to see if any one might be intrested in doing some trail exploration in the Mt Magazine area. i know a couple of trails i used to play on when i was in high school. the first trail head is actually about 10 miles east of paris and puts you out on the road that goes up mount magazine.  From what i remember it consists of 2 creek crossings which have been deep depending on if it rains before not a difficult trail we ran jeeps with 4 inch lift and 33,s and no lockers on it. There are some deep mud holes on the trail but most of them have a path around them. It ends at a waterfall which we have crawled up before you can braek on it if not careful i broke my rear ring and pinoun on it back in the day, and you dont have to climb it trail goes on top of it. Its not a long trail me and my buddies with about 4 rigs made it through in 4 or 5  hours. The other trail head is on the road up the mountain it is also a short trail also easy just goes down a rocky slope that has a ledge drop off down into a creek. It takes you down to the creek crossing where remains of an old concrete bridge are then takes you back to the road took me bymyself in my avalanche with 6 inches of lift to get through in about an hour. like i said it was back in 03 and 04 when i was up there and havent been since so there might be a few wrong turns involved . there are a lot of other trails just never explored them.  i wouldnt be able to go till next month just wanted to see if anyone might be intrested in going maybe make a day of it and end up going to the top of the mountain to see the view. if there is any intrest let me know  and maybe we can put something together for an exploration trail ride. and also when would be a good time for everyone.

My wife and I are planning to camp at Mt. Magazine the 23rd through the 25th.  We have never been there before.  I'm taking vacation from work that whole week before Memorial Day.  We have to come home before the 28th though. :(

ok had to go to russiville for my sisters graduation so i timed how long it takes to get to the trails. it takes from fort smith about 1 hour and 20  minutes to get there. so i figure if we all met at the super walmart in fort smith about 9 a.m we could get to the trail a little after 10 it takes about 2  to 3 hours to run the trail so we could have lunch at the waterfall and go from there and decided if we want to go up the mountain or other trails or whatever.

Ok here is the plan as of right now ride set for the 28th will meet at the superwalmart parking lot in fort smith at 9 a.m from there we will drive an hour and 20 min to the trail outside Paris near sorghum hollow horse trails stopping for gas in Paris we will then run the main trail I know and have lunch at the waterfall. From there we can sort of play it by ear run up to the top of the mountain or find other trails or whatever. Looks like I got a couple of jeeps coming from down here not members of the club yet any way looks like A nice day according to the weather and hope to see y'all there

Someone posted this map on the Central Overland site.  It looks like it includes the Mt. Magazine area on page 5. I'll add it to our Area Trails Page as well
