It was great to see the hot springs and get a good view of the city. It's a short hike and mostly uphill but not too bad.

This was beautiful drive overlooking Hot Springs! Would be gorgeous in fall! The trees are beautiful in summer and looks down over city. Would recommend drive - well worth time.

Very inexpensive way to see for miles. The view alone is worth the small fee to go atop the tower. The staff inside the gift shop were all friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend for anyone who appreciates natural scenery and beauty.

the clerk inside although was helpful, explained as best she could about the walking trails. If u decide to walk the trails, leave youre car at the bottom, don't drive up and walk down, after all you have to walk back up to get the car!

A must for every traveler, about a 2 hr drive. but worth the drive and the experience... the temperature is quite cool in the mountains so the hot springs is very relaxing

If you want to see the whole area called Hot Springs at one time this is a must see. The drive up is slow and winding but nice. The views from the tower are great. On the trips up and down we saw a total of 4 deer near the side of the road, so take it easy and you... More

After driving through the historic district and feeling a little rushed the night before, we decided to make the beautiful, leisurely and winding drive to the top for some perspective. With a fee that might seem a little high for time spent, the 5 of us rode the elevator up to the enclosed level, as the stairs were being painted,... More

It was a nice drive and we enjoyed the scenery, but not sure we would go back. Lots of roads in that area just as pretty and less conjested

The family had a good time hiking the trails from bath house row up to the observation tower. The hike took about 45 minutes, and was somewhat of a challenge. We took the elevator up the tower, which cost $25 for the 4 of us. I'm not sure if it was worth the money or not. We only spent about... More

We came to see the mountains and this was the way to do it! 360 view of Hot Springs and surrounding mountains. Coupons for tickets were in practically every shop and hotel in Hot Springs. We drove up and loved the winding roads. May try the hike in the Fall when it is not so hot. Can imagine how beautiful... More
