No trip to Mount Magazine is complete without taking the 1.4-mile hike from the Lodge to Signal Hill, the highest point in the state of Arkansas at 2,753 feet above sea level. Visitors can sign their names in a guest book at the top. For an after- hours activity, meeting groups can take advantage of one of the park's guided programs, such as a night sky exploration where a park interpreter dis- cusses the constellations and planets, or a hawk watch along one of the trails. "Groups can actually watch eagles and falcons fly by," said Ryan. "Birds of prey are very common to the area." Other recreation pursuits in the park include horseback riding, hang gliding, rock climbing, mountain biking and ATV adventures. The Lodge's Skycrest Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with savory items like barbecue brisket, farm-raised catfish and black-bean salsa. At the end of the day, attendees can soak in the indoor pool and hot tub as they watch the sun set over the valley.
