Very lovely view of Hot Springs and the surrounding area. We drove up the mountain road and we didn't find it scary or that winding. The view is great but as several other reviewers stated the tower areas were not clean.

Cost was about $7 per person but well worth it. Great views and had a history of Hot Springs from the beginning.

Visited the tower today since we had a beautifully clear morning. The elevator to the top has a glass back so you can see the scenery as you slowly ascend. Once at the top you have a bird's eye view of everything for miles around, but take a jacket for the wind. There are view scopes for use as well.... More

We had hike up to the tower from Bathhouse Row, which took about 30 minutes. Admission was $7.00, which allowed us to take an elevator approximately 12 stories up for a tremendous, panaramic view of Hot Springs and the surrounding area. Well worth the time!

Not part of the park system, but it's an inexpensive activity to do. Good exercise if you climb the steps. Lookout tower at the top. You can stop here on your way to the Goat Trail.

Definite mist see!! The drive up the scenic road is switchback, but you start to see glimpses of the view. Before turning to the tower is a small overlook. The tower is reasonably priced at $7/adult, $5/veterans and active military. Two observation decks, enclosed and outside. The enclosed details the history of Hot Springs. Great visit, I would come back.

We were killing time before meeting some friends and decided to see the tower. It's a beautiful drive up the winding road to the top. (I believe there are also foot paths to the top.) Once there, there's a gift shop where you buy your ticket to the top of the tower. A little pricey at $15/per. As the day... More

This tower has a beautiful 360 degree views of Hot Springs. It is an easy, lovely little drive to get there & lots of hiking in the area. Has a nice gift shop at the bottom.

Took the elevator to the top and had great views of Hot Springs and the surrounding landscape. Just hope you're there when the skies are clear. If it's foggy, there's not much to see. There's a gift shop on the lower level where you take the elevator and a small museum at the top.
