awesome hike in the rain...rocks were a little slippery but it was so worth it.

This was pretty difficult for a “moderate” trail. Gorgeous views but very challenging.

Decent hike, the majority was a boulder scramble to reach the top. Once at the summit, the views are ok but at only being around 1000ft its about what you would expect. Recommend going up the east, down the west then taking the base trail back to your car.

Easy hike, not much elevation gain or scenery to view. Not recommended for anyone looking for anything strenuous or scenic.

I was a first timer. It was a great hike. And amazing views at the top! Plan your time to relax at the top for a little bit if you can.

I saw all ages there today and lots and lots of dogs.

Love this trail. Just enough for a quick sweat! Little rock is humid, i see a lot of people going up without enough water. Hydration is important long or short hike.

Exactly what you’d be expecting for a moderate loop hike. It was a good time! Well maintained — just watch the trees for the yellow markers and your good to go. Second half of the hike you can’t see the water at all, but if you did the loop backwards there’s a very steep gravel hill that you probably don’t want to go down, so I’d stick with going the regular route. If I could go back, I would go the regular route to the lookout point and then then around and go back on the same path. Same distance as the entire trail would be, but you get the view the entire time.

Took a little less than 2 hours and we did it in the morning, finishing at 11am, which was really nice because the sun wasn’t beating down and the trees provided the shade.

Also super nice that it’s so close to the visitor’s center to use the restroom, cool down, and fill up with water when you’re done.

This trail brings you back into downtown after completing the sunset trail.

great little hike around the base of the mountain beautiful setting lots of shade. Recommend for everyone.

It was my first time in the Little Rock area and I happened upon this park while researching things to do in the area. I hiked to the top with a 40L backpack on (just for the heck of it) and large DSLR in hand... and it was very doable. The heat was definitely the worst part but the views from the top were worth the sweat!

I liked this trail, lots of curving around to follow the mountain. I picked it up at where the short cut trail meets it about .3 mile up from the bathhouse row. Nice trail.

real arkansans take this route.

great for a relaxing stroll. heavily under rated

kinda the go to thing to make non natives hike before leaving

Completed this trail today just as others have stated by combining the Oak, Canyon and small part of Sunset. All in all I ended up with 4 miles with all of those add ins. This has been my most enjoyable hike so far in Hot Springs. Trails were wide, easy to follow and good footing for the most part.

This is a beautiful hike with 2-4 service road exits. Be sure to wear hiking shoes or boots. The terrain is Rocky. Walking poles would be helpful also. There are several lake view spots. The last time we hiked here we saw 3 Young bucks. It took us 2 hours to complete the 4 mile loop.

Amazing experience! Offers easy and hard side! Incredible views at the peak!

Nice walk by the heart of Hot Springs

Did this today. I’ve never done a trip quite like this but it was incredible. Challenging and interesting.

A little more than I expected but very nice view from the top!

Never been here before and really loved the trails offered, even for a quick walk around... can’t wait to return!

loved this trail! we saw lots of deer, great lake views. we finished this trail in about 2.5 hours, taking a few breaks due to the heat.

Moderate-difficult hike. View from the top is excellent. Carry plenty of water especially during summer months.

Beautiful! Very easy trail can access many other trails

Tough but doable.

A super nice workout!! The view is amazing. Was so much more than I expected. I’ll be coming back for sure

So I did this trail last year and to say it’s a rewarding hike is an understatement! I’m a big gal and it took me some time to get to the top (like 2 hrs) but it was such a rewarding view! It’s a bucket list hike and still so proud of myself. It’s mostly climbing btw not hiking.

For our first hike at a national park we did well. It was nice to be on West Mountain and in nature. A good workout after all of the food we ate in Hot Springs! Just a little over 2 miles and one hour.

Great trail! Beautiful views! Loved it!

beautiful hike! didnt see one person the entire way. bring a TON of water, sunscreen, and light clothing. i hiked this trail around 3pm and the sun and heat was almost unbearable. not a good first time hike and not for unexperienced hikers.
