Very interesting walk in town and forest with some very historical buildings.
So many miles of gorgeous trails spiderwebbing right through town!
Hot and humid. I picked a bad day. Saw a snake. Found 5 lone star ticks on my legs. Haven't died yet. Good views outside the woods. Crosses many roads without traffic control.
Great trail. Nice breezy woods. Not too many vistas. Pay attention as the app has you cut through Hot Springs town to make the loop (neighborhood dogs were dicey).
Long, relaxing, peaceful forested walk through Hot Springs NP. Hiking the whole loop takes you briefly through the town and is about 14 miles (not 5) of hiking - be prepared! This trail is not stunning or breathtaking, but is very pleasant. The "strenuous" rating is really just for the length of this trail - it is not steep or uneven.
Enjoyed this trail. Well maintained and easily followed. Used this application to follow trail. We were short on daylight so we were unable to finish all the trail system. Good elevations. Wish we had trails like this directly outside of my hometown. Would definitely do again.
