Drove up both mountain roads through the forests. Great views over town of Hot Springs and valley. Several pull-outs. Only one picnic are on each mountain drive. Entrances may be difficult to find.

We stayed at the Arlington Hotel (not recommended, see my review of the Hotel). My 9 year old daughter and I hiked up the mountain to the Mountain Tower on a recent summer afternoon.

There is an East Mountain Drive that takes you up to where the tower is and a West Mountain Drive that has better views of the city. Both are nice drives with scenic overlooks.

Was so blessed to drive up and look over the city of hot springs. Went up in the tower and looked over city, could see years of trees growing. How dry it was and reading all the history that went with it

The kids really enjoyed the view from the mountain tower! It was very hot and the air wasn't working but they did have fans blowing lol. The gift shop was subpar but the experience was great!!

If you are in Hot Springs, drive up and park for free at the outlook in front of the tower. Trust me, the views are awesome, and the nature trails surrounding it are fun and gentle. Water available from spring fountains, trash cans available, even grills and picnic tables. Such a nice, breezy place to visit.

A really nice view of downtown Hot Springs. It is also a cool little drive. The walking trails at the top would be rather nice for hikers.

Good family experience. The view and drive up the mountain is breathtaking!!!! The AC was out of order on the 2nd floor which made for a short visit due to 102 degree temperatures.
