The drive to the tower was super easy, one way drive. We took the elevator to the top, and the view was spectacular! You can see mountain ranges with steam rising off the springs. It's also an amazing view of Hot Springs and Bathhouse Row! Definitely worth the drive up and the ride to the top!

We happened upon the mountain drive after going through the downtown. The road is steep in parts and curvy but it's one way traffic so you don't have to worry about oncoming traffic. It's also a small mountain so it's not terrifying as you head up. It included some nice vistas and spots where you could see mist rising from... More

The drive up onto Hot Springs Mountain is on a one way road that is rather narrow and quite winding ... great for the passenger's view but the driver is advised NOT to enjoy the view. That being said, I highly recommend taking this drive! There are some nice views from "scenic turn-outs" where you can look out over the... More

There are some picnic tables and you can see some hot springs. There is a cool tower at the top that you can go up in. Make sure to bring your national park pass!

I assume in the summer when the trees are completely leafed out, it... More

Take your time and drive up the mountain! There are a number of places you can pull over to wander on some trails. There is a great picnic spot, complete with tables and rest rooms! If you enjoy long scenic views, you won't be disappointed! You can look over a large area of Hot Springs, and some large, panoramic views... More

Take it very slow & look around. The dogwoods are bloomed out beautifully. It only takes a few minutes & definitely worth the time to go.

It is a short steep narrow curvy drive from downtown to peak. We skipped the tower because of my wife's fear of heights. Our Kids and grandkids went up the tower and loved it. We walked down a little to a scenic overlook and really enjoyed that. Gift shop seemed well stocked if you need tourist souvenirs.

From here there are several trails and the tower, worth the walk or drive up to see the park from here.
