Great trail. Tough initial incline but it levels off. Balanced Rock in a nice overlook. Beware of chiggers in Summer months.

Although this is the longest and most difficult-rated trek in the park, it proves that Hot Springs National Park isn't a hiker's delight. The scenery is pretty redundant with many signs of vandalism where the trail crosses over multiple roads. Do it if you're Jonesin for a hike, but you're better off enjoying the baths in town instead.

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.
