Description

This short trail is best used as an access point to the West Mountain Trail. This trail begins near Central Avenue and the National Park Visitor Center, and heads southwest. You may have to head out on the Oak Trail for a short while before this trail branches off to your right.

There will be one steep incline, but it is short and manageable. This historic path was originally constructed as part of a carriage road, and it's enjoyable to imagine carriages and horses rumbling down the path.

The trail comes to an end near the picnic area located at an intersection with the West Mountain Trail.

At the trails halfway point you are at the top. There is a great area to view downtown Hot Springs and a place to take a break.
