From the campground it was a moderate climb up to Goat Rock Trail overlook. Beautiful view & easy walk back down. Not too bad for senior citizens.

I loved this trail, you have awesome views of the city and beautiful scenery to walk through. We hiked it with four kids aged 5-15 and they all had a great time. Some of the signs were spray painted black so you couldn't see the trail markers but common sense is all you need. It took us about an hour with a few breaks on the benchs the park had throughout the trail.

Great hike with beautiful views. The trail gets rocky underfoot about halfway through and the loose quartz is really cool. Hike up to the top of Goat Rock. It's safe and a very short climb. There isn't a lot of shade on this trail but after Goat Rock, you can quickly turn onto Gulpha Gorge Trail which almost entirely shaded and much wider.

Nice loop with little traffic. Shaded well in the forest and mostly flat. This would be a good family hike.

Straight shot up the mountain from Bathhouse Row to Mountain Tower. It's a steep but short hike. Better views would earn it a 5 star.

Wide and well shaded trail. Beautiful scenery. Steep at times but a very nice hike.

Easy walk above historic Bathhouse Row.

Beautiful walk along historic park

Good hike in downtown Hot Springs

This trail allows you to start and finish at the same location. The official park trail map starts at Gulpha Gorge and finishes on West Mountain which means that you would have to park a car at the trailhead and the finish. This route simply starts and ends downtown using other hiking trails to connect the gap. This is a very long hike and you should set aside several hours to complete. My gps measured 13.13 miles. Parts of the trail are very steep and washed out. Take plenty of water, there are no water sources along the way. Plenty of deer to see along the way.
