The drive up the mountain is beautiful. We took the elevator to the top of the tower. The view of the Little Rock area is well worth the price.

There are incredible views to be seen from this vantage. You don't have to hike it. There is a winding road that allows access to the top. Views are incredible from the mountain or the tower at the top.

After we toured the bathhouses we decided to hike our way to the Tower. We took the short path, Dead Chief Trail. It was very vertical and challenging. We are very fit people so if you're not in excellent shape you might want to take...More

Hot Springs is a complicated town to negotiate--a trip up to Hot Springs Mountain will help you see why! Lovely vista of the town with the Ouachita Mountains in the background.
