You can drive to the top - or walk up from the bottom - but my suggestion is to drive. The walking areas are nice and maintained - but it is not a casual stroll at more than a mile and all vertical. Great views from the top ... parking is limited.

My husband and I hiked this mountain a couple times during our stay. There are several trails so we went a different route each time. Even got turned around coming down the mountain and ended up back at the top! Haha! Nice little adventure. And great view!

Highly recommend hiking to the top and going up in the observation tower. Amazing view and a good 1.5 mi trek up the mountain. Beautiful trail - even saw a few white tailed deer!

What a great way to see Hot Springs. Kids really enjoyed it. Coupons everywhere for a discount to get in. We really liked it.

Repairs and updates are needed at this tower. The drive is beautiful but the tower was kind of gross. The 2nd floor had 2 buckets catching dripping water from an A/C unit with no signs of being repaired soon. That whole floor was musty and carpet needs to be replaced, A/C fixed, walls painted. The upper area had good views... More

I shouldn't say, but it looks like a giant male part of the body. During my visit the second floor ceiling was leaking. It's a great place to go get some photos and the breeze on the top was very nice. It's a place I'll visit but forget all about it when I go home.

The drive up is really beautiful and if we had more time we would have liked to hike up. The tower was also worth checking out! The trees are great and you can see all kinds of wildlife. Worth the stop!

Enjoyed the view! Wish the sun would of been out. But it was absolutely awesome to see over the town at that height. And the drive going up is very neat.. The kids laughed almost the whole time.

A little pricey for the elevator ride, but you have no choice but to pay the fee. It's a nice view and if you are in the area, you really should do this attraction...at least once.

This tower is only $7 to take an elevator to the top and it is worth every penny. What an awesome view of the city and surrounding area. The drive up and down the mountain is also interesting, if you dare, there are a number of hiking trails to the top of the mountain, but you better be in shape.... More
