Mt Magazine

Mount Magazine had changed quite a bit since the last time I was up there, about 2 years ago. They have a really nice visitor center built for the state park with some highpoint souvenirs and nice displays about the flora and fauna of the mountain. I talked with the park employees about the timetable on when the new lodge is to be built. They said ground breaking is scheduled for summer of 2003 with a completion by 2006. The design is pretty impressive, 3 stories right on the bluff line (it is actually on the site of the old lodge that burned).

They have also improved the trail to the summit. Nice gravel path. I also read about the plans for a monument at the highpoint (don't know how big). Looks to be turning into a nice state park. It would be a great place for the Highpointers convention after the lodge is built.
