Previous logs show a water feature- that is not on this trail. I would classify the trail as a gravel driveway as far as views.

Trail was well maintained and easy, even for my 5 and 7 year olds. According to hot springs NP park maps you can connect to the Arlington trail and then get back onto the main roads but the Arlington trail has been closed or dead ends at the hotel... at their hot tub actually. According to signs you can only exit through the 7th floor of the Arlington hotel. We had a dog with us so we didn’t try that and just turned back to get out via the floral trail. So just FYI the Arlington trail DEAD ENDS.

The upper and lower dogwood are very complicated. They intersect a lot with each other, and other trails that are not listed under the Alltrails database. I'll get them figured out one day. would like to explore this area more, but the meters running. By the way, that's number 4 this morning. Stay tuned!

Great trail! The pictures showed a waterfall and I didn’t see that, so that was a little upsetting but that’s ok!

We actually combined the Upper and Lower trails for this hike into a longer loop. Quiet, not a single other hiker even though the mountain was absolutely packed with people. Lower Dogwood was rougher with several washed out areas but the Upper was very well maintained despite the lack of travel.

Hot Springs National Park does great job maintaining this and other trails on the Park.

Well marked, pretty simple. There are absolutely no hot springs on this trail.
