Mountain bikingGreat!

We biked and it was very pretty! There was one spot I had to walk my bike because of the incline and rocks. Otherwise very quick and nice! Mostly shaded and beautiful views!

This trail is extremely easy and quick. However, some of the trees are truly beautiful. I never quite felt that on the other Hot Springs trails, so because of that I recommend it. It was also much more quiet and serene than Goat Rock and Gulpha Gorge. I don’t recall hearing any vehicles and I saw no one else.

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

Very basic. Quick half mile, but quite a few spider webs you run in to — look out!

First to Review

Basic trail through the woods, not much different than the others on the mountain but I enjoyed it. Mostly flat and good footing, well shaded.
