Highpoint rank by height: 34th. The high point of Magazine Mountain is called Signal Hill, so watch for signs for either name. The summit is a lovely spot in the cool of the woods.

Started on the North Rim Trail with my hiking partner and two dogs. Beginning of the trail was tricky, alot of steep up and down, some good overlooks, but felt really short. So we decided to hike to highpoint. The incline wasn't bad once we started heading to the peak, but the trail crossed with so many other trails that we actually got turned around and lost. The scenary was great, though, really made for a good time. Surprisingly, did not end up getting a single tick on me, my hiking partner, or either dog. Trail was well maintained, and the variety, despite the poor markings, made for a good 7.3 mile jaunt. The only drawback to this hike is Mt. Magazine itself. If you're expecting to reach the peak and be blown away by a breathtaking view, then the payoff on this hike will REALLY disappoint. The highpoint is marked by a placard and a sign. That's it. All-in-all the trail system is beautiful, not well marked, but very well maintained, and can make 8 miles seem like nothing once you get past the rim trail's difficulty level.

Nice trail, well marked, two places to filter water (with purifier), leaves cover much of the trail at this time making solid footing precarious in some places. I didn't count nine stream crossings as in the trail info (only five dry washes) at this time of year. Cove Lake was the TH, first five miles in 2.5 hours, last five in 5 hours, to the summit of Signal Hill. Return to Cove Lake the next morning took 6.5 hours with about an hour off for lunch and other rest stops. This trail is well maintained and has three scenic views. KWright
