Mount Magazine Lodge

Recommended Posts

There's a hudge lodge being built atop the state's largest mountain. The views there are absolutely fantastic, and the elevation change from mountain to valley is 2300+ feet, comparable to the Appalachians and Rockies.

I'm glad they're rebuilding the lodge; I just hope it doesn't hurt any of the wildlife up there. I remember when I visited about a year and a half ago, there were beautiful butterflies and insects and wildflowers literally everywhere. The cooler climate seemed to help a bit. Mount Magazine even has its own species of snail only found on that mountain. I hope the increased traffic does not hurt any of it, because that, in my opinion, would be a greater loss than would be the gain of a state-of-the-art lodge.

Here's Arkansas Business' special feature on it:

Yeah I saw a little bit on that. I just wish they hadn't took up so much of the southern top of the mountain between it and the cabins they put in. Yet another place to add to my list of places to go check out and take pics.
