It was great timing during my visit on September 18, 2012. The weather was warm with a clear sky. This park has scenic drives, and many hiking paths. Make sure you get a map from the visitor center, since the park is located in different areas of the city of Hot Springs. The main portion of Hot Springs National Park is located in downtown Hot Springs. A scenic walk is located in what is called the Grand Promenade. A scenic drive towards the back of the park will take you to the Mountain Tower. In a different section of Hot Springs National Park is an area called Whittington Park. Finally, at the intersection of Whittington Avenue and West Mountain Drive, is the West Mountain portion of Hot Springs National Park. Here you will find a scenic drive with scenic overlooks, plus more hiking trails. This national park is a fun and beautiful place to visit during late summer and early fall when it is not very crowded, since many of the tourists are back to work or school. And the weather is still decent. Enjoy your visit!
