The switchback road going up and down is well laid out and newly paved and is a real treat to drive. There are places to pull off and enjoy the view and it is impressive! you end up looking right down into the city and can see for miles. We really enjoyed the drive--don't miss this one if you are...

Hiking trails range from cobble-stones to steep climbs, but they all take you to breath-taking views of the Valley of Vapors that you just will not want to miss!

The view from the tower was great. There is an elevator that takes you to the top of the 21 story tower where you can view Hot Springs from an enclosed space or an open space.

Loved hiking on the trails here. They were marked well and gave adequate descriptions for how much hiking you would be doing. So beautiful to walk around and sooo quiet. Great for any range of hikers.

While in Hot Springs, make sure you make the drive up Hot Springs Mountain & West Mountain drive. Both give you very scenic views that are definite Kodak moments. Last year we caught the change of colors in November & the scenery was spectacular. Not so lucky this year, but still a very scenic drive. The roads are very well... More

We weren't sure where we were going and found ourselves on a one way road going up a mountain! Finally made it to the top. I'm not good with heights so stayed close to the road, however even from back away from the rail the view is spectacular! I would definitely make the journey again and recommend it. And it's... More
