Great trail. But overlaps with others and is not properly marked.... great to get in shape on
Maybe we got lost somehow but this trail was not easy to follow and certainly wasn't a "loop" by my standards. we ran out of trail markers at a street next to a creek. We ended up walking/carrying our dogs next to a very busy local highway, then through a neighborhood, briefly through a shopping district, then up the side of the road that side of the West mountain where we had parked our car at the trail head. The map on my watch matched the shape of the trail map on this site. It was a very long walk, and we weren't expecting to be walking downtown in our dorky hiking gear with our dogs.
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).
