This was a good trail for beginners. I took my 9yr old and she loved it. Will do again and bring my dog.

Not much for scenic views but a nice trail. About a quarter mile in I startled a white-tail doe which was fun.

We used this trail from the campgrounds to connect to get to Hot Springs Mountain trail so we could climb to the top overlook. This trail was in good shape but for a out of shape novice hiker it felt pretty steep though with switchbacks the grade was never too much. Just mostly constant increase in elevation. No real scenic views on this trail but that was okay since we were using it to connect and get to the top.

Technically the trail is not difficult but the constant elevation change makes it challenging. The trail is mostly shaded but still very hot and humid so bring plenty to drink. I actually did an extra 1/2 mile hoping to find balanced rock but didn’t.

decent trail.

nice trail. Well marked and wide path.

This is a nice paved walk downtown, I find it more as easy than moderate if you do not do the stairs as I know stairs can hurt some people's knees. There are trails that can take you up the mountain if you'd like.

Really enjoyed this hike. Was shaded but still able to feel the breeze. Beauty all around. Our dog loved it! Even saw wildlife.

Consider this more a stroll and not hiking so to speak. It is very pretty and I love downtown Hot Springs. However there are several trails located off the paved walk, if you feel so inclined to do so.

A great hike, lots of loose rocks on the west mountain. But the opposite side the trail was flat and easy to walk. The sunset trail was not easy to identify at many points as signs were missing, partially gone or all together confusing were to go. There's a point where you can take fork either way... highly suggest the less traveled, rustic path, better scenery and views plus the path is more of a hike then the flat manicured path.

Nice, mostly shaded trail. We started at the blue trail but I didn’t feel like they were clearly marked so we ended up somewhere different than where we started. Our two dogs loved the water! We couldn’t keep them out! I would say this was more of an easy trail with the exception of a couple steeper areas.

Beautiful day, warm but not too much. A lot of people on the trail. Easy to get to the waterfall if you go left at the T. Lots of terrain but not hard. Will come back when it’s cooler!

My favorite trail in Hot Springs National Park!

Very chill trail near the top of the mountain. Very mild elevation, lots of shade.

Short and sweet! Great view at the end, well maintained trail

We entered from Bathhouse Row, between the two eagle columns. Gives you kind of a royal flourish to begin your journey. All uphill but you're there before you know it. Then we paid our $5 (with National Park Pass) to walk up all 8 flights of stairs of the 185-foot tower. You have the option of taking the elevator, but you just hiked up the hill so why not finish the job? Plus the interior of the observation deck had great air conditioning and a water fountain at the gift shop at the base. ProTip: To maintain the spirit of the Hot Springs, I filled my bottle with the free 143° spring water at the tap to the right of the bathhouses; by the time I reached the summit, it was cool enough to drink. Warm, but drinkable. I'm weird like that.

Beautiful easy walk on paved road. It’s a great way to see bathhouse row. Not necessarily a hike but my girls still enjoyed it. They also liked seeing the hot spring up close and personal.

great trail- very scenic! we could’ve without the family at the waterfall but the trail itself was gorgeous.

We took our three kiddos to this. They offer strollers for free and are very friendly. We walked the trails for over three hours and were constantly moving. It is beautiful and definitely worth the money. They have a beautiful glass chapel to look at as well.

Great trails and well kept. Rode both the Green trails and Blue. Personally I liked the Blue and found myself on a black when following the Green. Other than that, you can’t beat the trails for maintainability. Well Done!!!
