“Great trail for a quick workout or to get a bit of outdoor hiking if visiting downtown Hot Springs.”— Robert Thacker
Family Friendly Easy to navigate and not overly strenuous. A great trail to start kids on.
Starting at Whittington Park on the Mountain Top Trail and connecting into West Mountain Trail can provide a nice loop trail experience. There is off street parking on the Whittington Park side and a National Park office with free spring water access on the sidewalk. This is a great place to fill your water bottles for free with local spring water.
