Description

Nice, fairly easy trail through mostly deciduous woods. It's steep at the beginning, but paved for the steep section. Above the steep section, it's well groomed, small gravel. Most of the trail is about 3 to 4 feet wide, although it's much wider near the top, after it crosses the Hot Springs Mountain Trail. Look for white blazes until it crosses the road and the Hot Springs Mountain Trail, where the blazes are blue. The trail ends at the Hot Springs Mountain Tower, with beautiful views of the Ouachita Mountains.

This is a view of the trail from the top of the tower. You can see it extending from the left hand side down the hill.

The trail levels out in some areas but has a steady uphill incline. My 7 year old was able to do it without issues but those with limited mobility may struggle and can drive up.

Benches line the trail, allowing you to stroll at a leisurely pace and take breaks as needed.
